Albany's Hines paying it forward with his college choice

ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Cameron Hines knows he wouldn't have gotten to where he is without family and coaching.

The offensive lineman rewarded both parties with his college choice.

Hines signed with Point University, an NAIA school out in West Georgia.

The offensive lineman was a four-year starter at Albany High School.

His university choice pleased his family because he'll remain within driving distance.

His field of study choice is an homage to those who helped him get here.

Hines will major in exercise science to become a coach.

The First-Team All-Region lineman wants to make an impact similar to what he felt under Felton Williams as in Indian.

"My goal, I always had an older brother and my dad who was always into football. And everybody around me was into football. So it was always football, football, football. But one thing they always made me make sure is to use football to get an education so you can do something after football ends," said Hines.

Hines is the second Indian to sign in the 2017 class.
