With two-a-days starting in just a week and a half, David catches up with some members of the Albany Lion football team in the Albany installation of KTAB On The Road.
David Robinett said, “Let’s talk about the history of this program. How cool is it to play in a program that’s number 15 all time in wins?”
“It’s an honor to get to play for such a great organization. It puts a little pressure on us,” Blaine Kayga said. “It’s just like any other team that played for Coach Faith and the Albany program, we’re up for a challenge.”
“Now we’re going to be joined by Tyler Beard, Tyler, offensive lineman, defensive line, last year at least, probably this year too,” David said. “I mentioned Coached Faith’s 299 wins, that means he’s been here a long time, that means he’s established. What’s it like to play for him?”
“It’s quite an experience. Just playing for a coach that’s so successful in football, just besides a coach, he’s like a father to us,” Tyler Beard said. “He’s a mentor, he teaches us good things, to live on in life, he’s just a good man.”
“We think so too. Let’s talk about, last year you guys lost the first five games, then reeled off 9 straight,” David said.
“Obviously you don’t want to do it like that again, tell me what the expectations of this team are.”
“The expectations are to bond as a team first, once we bond as a team, we succeed,” Beard said. “Then once we succeed, we win games, which hopefully leads to a state championship.”
The Lions open up the 2019 season on the road at Colorado City on Friday, August 30th.
