UAlbany Football Home Opener Is This Saturday!
Are you ready for some UAlbany Football??? The Great Danes’ home opener at their new stadium named after their coach (who’s in his final season), Bob Ford, is on Saturday at 7pm under the lights.
The team features several home-grown talents this year:
Ryan Smith (Guilderland) – Sophomore QB
Zach Morton (Burnt Hills) – Junior DE
JP McCauley (Queensbury) – Freshman OT
Prosper Mbonque-Muna (Albany Academy) – Senior OLB
Kenny Mathieu (Columbia) – Freshman CB
Jonathan Martin (Bethlehem) – Freshman P
Mike LaNoir (Glens Falls) – Freshman FB
Nic Ketter (Queensbury) – Freshman FB
Nate Hatalsky (Mechanicville) – Freshman ILB
Ryan Griffin (Shaker) – Freshman ILB
Matthew Campion (Stillwater) – Freshman OT
The Danes were on the road for their first two match-ups. They dropped their season opener against Duquesne but bounced back with a victory last Saturday against Colgate. They’ll be squaring off against Rhode Island this weekend. If you can’t make it out to the game, you can catch it on Time Warner Cable SportsChannel.
