Antwone Savage has enjoyed a long and winding football career. He began as a star QB at Westover, signed as a WR with Oklahoma — where he helped lead the Sooners to the 2000 national title — then nearly made it in the NFL before going on to a successful arena league career. He won a title with the Spokane (Wash.) Shock in the af2, then came back to his roots, where he became a teacher at Turner Elementary and joined Albany’s two arena teams — the South Georgia Wildcats and the Albany Panthers, who he helped lead to the title last year. On Saturday, he has a chance for another ring, then he’s calling it a career. (firstname.lastname@example.org)
