Albany High quarterback Emmanul Byrd is heading for a breakout senior season. And if everything goes to plan, Byrd may have a difficult decision for his college football future
The senior quarterback has attended camps at Georgia, Auburn and Florida this summer. While those schools may not be viewing Byrd as a quarterback prospect, the senior is gaining interest at the position from another SEC school.
According to Coach Williams, the University of Kentucky has also entered the mix for Byrd at quarterback.
Coach Williams believes in his offensive leader, and is already dreading when he has to let Byrd go.
"I think I'm going to shed a few tears the day he graduates. He's gradually getting better, but he's still humble. That's the most important partâ|staying humble and staying hungry. Each day with him he's just getting a little better...it's like old wine you hate to see it go," Williams said at last week's FCA Camp.
The senior is already fielding offers from smaller schools of University of South Alabama, UNC-Charlotte and Savannah State. Albany High opens its 2012 season at Greenville High School on August 31.
