ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Albany High quarterback Emanuel Byrd appears ready to have a breakout season for the Indians.
Emanuel Byrd is our WALB Albany area player of the week for the first week of the season.
Dr. James Mason made the presentation at the Orthopaedic Associates Clinic on Thursday.
Emanuel Byrd accounted for six touchdowns in last week's win over Dougherty.
The junior threw four touchdown passes and ran for two scores.
Byrd has been Albany High's starting quarterback since he was a freshman and the experience is starting to pay off.
Emanuel Byrd said. "It helped me a lot to get the game rhythm. The flow of the team and the chemistry between me and the other players. It helps alot."
Albany High plays rival Westover in a very big game 7:00 p.m. Saturday at Hugh Mills Stadium.
