I am never one to wish away Summer or baseball season but when I get a email from University of Albany with their key football dates I get a little excited. Here are the key dates as UAlbany Football training camp is less than a month away. That means 8/31 against Central Michigan will be here before we know it.

  • Tuesday, July 23: Coach Gattuso, Eli Mencer and Griffin Clancy will be attending CAA Media Day in Baltimore. If I can help arrange phone interviews or send photos from Baltimore, please don’t hesitate to reach out.
  • Wednesday, July 24: Members of the UAlbany football program will be visiting local fire and police stations to give away tickets to our Hometown Heroes Game on Sept. 21. At 10:15 a.m., they’ll be stopping by the McKownville Fire Department and presenting the tickets to men’s basketball player Antonio Rizzuto, a volunteer firefighter. You’re welcome to attend.
  • Tuesday, July 30: Well be holding our annual Media Day on the Casey Stadium Concourse from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.
  • Wednesday, July 31: Training camp opens.
