#CAAFB Going Deep – Bob Ford: Father of UAlbany Football

Sep 17, 2013, 10:03 AM EDT

In Week 2 of our Going Deep series, CAA Football visits UAlbany, where Bob Ford has for four decades dedicated his life to Great Danes Football, the Capital District and both his personal family and an extended family of thousands of current and former players. Coach Ford’s legacy transcends the stadium that now bears his name. It is engrained in the UAlbany culture, the Capital District community and in a sport in which he has meant so much to so many.

Check out Coach Ford’s story in the video below. More On Campus coverage from our trip to UAlbany can be found here.
