Indians look to turn a new page

Posted: Updated:

The Albany High football program has won just 4 games in the last 5 seasons, 2-8 last year but 2011 brings a new page for the orange and green.  It has been 52 years since Albany High has won a state championship in football, 1959 to be exact, but word is that the Indians have the chance to possibly change that this season.

The team took part in one of its 7 on 7 passing camps this past week at Westover High.  Head coach Felton Williams says Albany has had an impressive summer and that the Indians boasts a flurry experience on this season's team that it hasn't had in a number of years.

Coach Williams says the skills players are flying around the field and the city will see a new look Albany high team come August.

Williams said "This is going to be probably the most well seasoned team Albany High has had in a long time. We're looking at roughly 17 seniors. Now we're loaded at all the skills positions out of the back. Our team is going to be led by the offensive line. It's going to be anchored by 2, 6'3-6'4 offensive lineman that are being highly recruited. The focus of this team is going to be rallied around that offensive line. This team is expected to do great things. This team should go pretty deep in the playoffs and should compete really well in region 1-AA."

You can catch the new look Indians on August 27th at Hugh Mills Stadium against Dougherty
