Florida State football had a perfect year, going undefeated for the season and earning the national championship over Auburn. With the offseason at hand and spring practice still a couple of weeks away, players get the chance to travel home and see family or friends before preparing for next season. Rashad Greene, a junior wide receiver for the Seminoles and Westover High School alumni paid a little visit to his roots here in Albany.
Greene started playing for Pop Warner Youth Football and one of his first coaches was Ivy Williams.
Williams said, I started coaching Rashad between ages 8-13 and have been close to him ever since.
Greene understands the impact and importance it makes for a superstar to recognize where he came from and to give back to the community.
Greene said, This means a lot to get a chance to give back to the football program that got me started and I know it means even more to these kids.
Greene spent all afternoon signing autographs, taking pictures, and meeting the young superstars of Pop Warner Football.
