Fifteen student-athletes earn fall all-star recognition

Fifteen Albany High School student-athletes earned postseason all-star recognition this fall, including eight members of the Albany High School football team who earned All-Empire Division recognition Nov. 21 with the release of the Section II Class AA all-star teams.

 

Senior running back Ky’ere Tillery led the way in football, earning recognition as the Empire’s all-purpose player of the year. Also earning first-team recognition this fall were seniors Eileen Bequette (girls' cross country, Suburban Council), Jarrell Chaney (football, Class AA Empire Division) and Badi Smith (boys' soccer, Suburban Council).

 

Please visit our Athletics News section to read more. Congratulations to all of our fall student-athletes!

Director's Memo: Sports are a time commitment
Updated for the fall 2016 sports season
Sports are a time commitment.

If you are participating in a varsity, JV or modified (grades7-8) sport, please keep in mind that you are making a commitment to your team and that sport. To be fair, each player must make the commitment to be present at each practice and contest throughout the season before tryouts begin. This weighs heavily on the decisions made by coaches when they determine their rosters. A schedule is given at the beginning of each team’s season and is also available before tryouts upon request.
