ALBANY — The University at Albany football program announced Monday that it will play this year’s spring game away from Tom & Mary Casey Stadium.

Instead, the April 27 4 p.m. game will take place at Troy High School, where UAlbany players Joe Casale and Dev Holmes teamed up to win a pair of state championships.

The April 27 game will be free to attend and include an autograph session.

“One of the things we really pride ourselves on is having our athletes out in the community, being positive members of the community and being community-service oriented,” UAlbany head coach Greg Gattuso said in a press release issued through the school’s athletic department. “You’re always looking for ways to enhance support for the program, and moving the spring game somewhere out in the community is one way to do that.”

Spring practice starts Tuesday for the Great Danes who open their 2019 season Aug. 29 at Central Michigan.
