The Albany Empire Adds Two Defensive Stars

ALBANY, NY - The Empire is excited to announce the signing of two defensive stars in Chris Martin and Brandon Sesay! 

Brandon Sesay returns to the Empire after winning the 2019 championship with the AFL Albany Empire squad. Sesay played his college ball at Texas Tech University before transitioning to the indoor leagues. He played for numerous franchises over his 10 year career, and even earned All-AFL. 

Chris Martin joins the Empire to help bring a championship to Albany! After a standout prep career, where he was selected for the Army All-American game, Martin took his talents to the University of Florida. After a successful career in the SEC, Martin jumped into the Indoor Football League. In 2019 he was named 1st team all IFL. 

Both Sesay and Martin will be key pieces in the defense as the Albany Empire goes on the hunt for their first NAL championship. 

Head Coach Tom Menas said “Adding two key pieces like Sesay and Martin to the defense this late in the season is a complete blessing to the team. We can’t wait to see our already strong defense get even greater.”
