Albany High Football

It has been a difficult summer for the Albany High football team.

The Indians not only lost head coach Reginald Mitchell to Sherwood Christian but several Indians have transferred to private schools, including running back Dontavious Brown at SCA.

Albany High Interim head coach Felton Williams says the Indians still have plenty of good football players on their roster.

Williams has only been on the job for less than a month but he is working hard to get the Indians ready for their season opener.

The former Albany High quarterback says the Tribe will be strong on the offensive line with three starters back and the defensive front will be solid as well.

Senior Kahari Glover and sophomore Calvin Jackson are ready to step up at running back.

Senior Barry Diamond is back at quarterback where Williams plans to use Emmanuel Byrd under center.

"Barry overall strength will be his knowledge of the position and his senior leadership. Also his strength of his running ability and also his throwing ability. Emmanuel brings the total package to the game with his height and his throwing ability as well,"  Felton Williams said.

Albany High opens the regular season at Miller County.

2009 Outlook:   This football season will be a season where the Albany High School Indians will prove to be a team that will be a contender in region 1AA.  The Indians will be able to compete with any team that they face in the 2009 season.  The offensive line will be the backbone of the team.  Our offense has truly worked very hard in the off season to get bigger, faster, and stronger.  The offensive skill personnel  will also play a vital part in the success of the team.  The team will be lead by seniors Derinique Daniels, Barry Diamond, Jarvis Hicks, Jerome Carter, Stephon Nelson, Brandon Johnson, Tyrell Simpson, Carl Turner, Ronald Smith, and Kahari Glover.  Several other key players are expected to play big roles in the 2009 season:  Kalvin Jackson-RB/LB, Roscoe Byrd-OL/DL, Emanuel Byrd-QB/DB, Jontavious Morris-OL/DL, Corey Thomas-DB/WR, Savian Paschal, Ribri Jimmerson.  The defensive line will be the most inexperienced area of the team.  This area will get better as the season goes on.  The special teams and kicking game will also play a vital part in the success of the team.  The overall success of the 2009 season will lay heavily on a healthy and strong defensive line.
