Albany - When college football teams hit the practice field in August, coaches are looking for starters.

They are also looking for leaders.

With so many personnel losses on offense, the Albany State Rams are counting senior quarterback Kisan Flakes to step up and lead that unit.

Flakes has done that since the first team meeting.

Even when other quarterbacks are getting reps during practice, Flakes is coaching his offensive teammates to make sure they know what to do on every play.

Kisan Flakes said "I am coaching the guys and letting them know if their protection is good. If they got everything as far as their reads are down and I want to make sure everyone is on the same page."

Head coach Mike White said "Not only has he been leading verbally but he has been doing it by action also and that is what you like to see."

Albany State opens the season August 30th at the Albany Municipal Coliseum against Shaw University.
