The Albany Empire have taken the Capital Region by storm! Maybe no player has been more successful or exciting than WR Malachi Jones, or as the show now calls him Malachi "Touchdown" Jones. Jones has been so good that everyone from his fellow players to Head Coach Rob Keefe have said he will be in the NFL sooner than later.

Last week Malachi Jones was electrifying like usual. Jones hauled in seven catches for 177 yards and five touchdowns, along with six rushing yards and one touchdown a week ago.  The rookie ranks first in reception yards with 890. One of those catches last week nearly took all the air out of the Times Union Center when Jones catch and held on to a Touchdown while being sandwiched between the boards and a Philadelphia Soul defender. When Jones was able to get back on his feet and raise his arms to let the home crowd know he was okay the Arena erupted.

Jones will need to be that good and maybe better this Saturday at 7:30pm when the Empire look to end their losing streak against the Baltimore Brigade in Baltimore. Remember you can hear this and every Empire game on ALT 105.7 FM.
