Here’s Kelly on why he decided to sign with Albany State:
“They’re R-B-U (Running back University) down there, man. They’re running backs really know how to run the ball. They know running back techniques and I feel like I can get better down there.”
Kelly also says Howard High School definitely prepared him for the next level:
“I’d personally say Howard weight room, football, like you know, all of that. They have one of the best programs in Macon, man. Like, when coach Carroll came in, brought a lot of motivation. He kept us in the weight room. Being in the weight room. That’s first, like, you can’t win without going to the weight room.”
