Training camp report No. 19: Albany High

(Blogger's note: Record reporter Andrew Santillo covered Albany High for the Kickoff 2010 section. I will post photos and a few brief notes for the Falcons, but since I was not on campus, I do not have video).

ALBANY -- Once again, the Albany High School football team has a new coach. John McClement replaced Pete Porcelli this past offseason, becoming the school's fourth football coach in the last four years.

After spending last year as the defensive coordinator, McClement has taken over the program with an uphill battle ahead.

The Falcons have won just one game over the past three seasons and haven’t posted a single victory in the last two years.

"That’s the definition of an uphill battle," McClement told The Record's Andrew Santillo. "We’re really trying to instill in them, you’re having successes, but the win is how it’s measured at the varsity level and that’s what they’re working towards."

For the full story on the Falcons, check out the Kickoff 2010 section tucked inside Thursday's edition of The Record.

Albany’s three keys to the season
1, Dealing with adversity. This year’s Albany team will deal with adversity at some point during the season. It’s how the team deals with those things that will prove how good or bad this team will be.
2, Coaching transitions. It’s not just McClement who is in a new position. Albany has several new coaches, some that used to play for the team, when the team was strong, back in the mid 90s. The players are confident that these coaches can turn things around.
3, Offense change. The Falcons are going from a predominately running offense under Coach Pete Porcelli to a more balanced system. Under new Offensive Coordinator Jim Demidio, it looks like Albany will try their hand at going through the air with senior quarterback Michael Blair.
