Dust off your old cleats! Alumni football is coming to Albany. Gridiron Alumni is planning several full contact alumni football games. Gridiron Alumni travels the nation pitting old football rivals against each other one more time.
Players are needed to sign up and the first 40 players on each team get to play. The team that gets 30 people registered first gets home field advantage. Last year, hundreds of players and thousands of fans swarmed stadiums to watch their home town heroes strap it on one more time.
This year, Gridiron Alumni would like to bring alumni football to the whole state of Georgia. Teams from Albany, Dougherty, Monroe, Sherwood Christian Academy, Westover, and other area teams are forming now.
Games are scheduled for March and April, but spots and game dates fill up fast. If you or someone you know is interested in putting on the pads one more time, please go to http://www.gridironalumni.com to register.
If you have any questions, please call Chris at (530) 410-6396 or go to the website.
