UAlbany football gearing up for 2017 season

UAlbany football gearing up for 2017 season (WRGB)

ALBANY, NY (WRGB)--UAlbany football is exactly one month away from its season-opener at Old Dominion.

Today, the Great Danes strapped on the pads for practice, for the first time all summer.

Pre-season All-American Elijah Ibitokun-Hanks is working his way back from an ACL injury he suffered in last year's season finale.

While he admits he's not back to 100% health, he's confident he can get there in a month's time.

"EB" had a record-setting sophomore season in UAlbany's backfield, thanks in part to the outstanding play of the offensive line in front of him.

Despite losing four of last year's starting front five, the Great Danes' playmakers are confident they can pick up right where they left off.
