UAlbany Football Coach Greg Gattuso Previews 2015 Season with Armen and Levack [AUDIO]
UAlbany head football coach Greg Gattuso joined Armen and Levack in-studio Monday afternoon, for several segments.
The Great Danes open up their training camp this Thursday and entering his second season, Gattuso wanted to make it clear to the Capital Region that his football team is the area's team.
"I’ve been telling everyone I talk to that we represent all of our alumni and the University of Albany and we hope to make them proud but we also carry the name ‘Albany’ on our shoulder and we want the Capital Region to embrace us," Gattuso told Armen and Levack.
"We want to represent the Capital Region and we want to bring people in to watch these games."
UAlbany opens up on the road against the University of Buffalo, an FBS school, then features home games in 2015 against Duquesne, Maine, Rhode Island and New Hampshire.
"If you can’t get fired up to watch all these great teams that are coming here to play then maybe you’re not quite a football fan, but we need the support. There’s nothing better than a full house cheering at Bob Ford Field. It rocks and we can get about 10,000 people in there so we’d love to have the support.
"People have been great. I’ve been amazed at the difference in the recognition as I go around with my family and the people who say, ‘hey coach’. They’re starting to pick it up, we love it, and it’s awesome."
In his inaugural season with UAlbany, Gattuso's team put up an overall record of 7-5. This season, like every season, Gattuso is adamant that his squad will have aspirations of nothing short of a conference championship.
Armen and Levack can be heard weekdays on 'Your Home for New York Sports', 104.5 The Team.
