Posted: Updated:

The Albany Panthers are not resting on their unbeaten record.  The team wanting to improve a defense that is already one of the best in the SIFL have added Jacob Hardwick.

The former Albany State linebacker was the Rams' leading tackler last year.  Panthers head coach Lucious Davis says it's always good for the team to find local talent.

Panthers head coach Lucious Davis said a "It's very good to get a local guy, especially of his caliber. I think a lot of our fans, people in the community know who he is.  Once he understands the game and gets in better shape then hey, I think we'll be real good up front."

Panthers defensive back Demetrie McCray said "It's be a big help simply because the better pass rush we get, it'll make it easy for the guys on the back end."

Kicker Wes Virgilio is special teams player of week.  The Panthers look to stay undefeated at Fayetteville this weekend
