ALBANY -- Albany State University football fans and supporters are invited to meet and greet the football coaches and hear exciting information about the 2011 season at a preseason reception.

The 12th annual Preseason Football Reception will be July 29 at 5:30 p.m. at Eula Lovett Hall at the ASU Coliseum.

The reception, which is free of charge and open to members of the Quarterback Club and Golden Rams football fans, is the official start of the 2011 season, according to head coach Mike White.

"This is a great opportunity to thank our fans for supporting us during the 2010 season and solicit support for our 2011 campaign," White said. "We had a great season last year, and we are looking forward to providing lots of excitement for our fans as we compete for the 2011 SIAC and national championship titles."

White and the assistant coaches will preview and answer questions about the Golden Rams' upcoming season. Guests will also get to meet and greet several Golden Ram football players.

The Golden Rams captured the SBN Black College National Championship and the SIAC title last season. They will open the 2011 season Sept. 3 in a non-conference matchup against the Savannah State University Tigers in the Music City Classic. Kickoff is set for 2 p.m. at Henderson Stadium in Macon.
