Do YOU have what it takes to be a Force football player?

…Then now is your chance to prove it! The Georgia Force will hold an open try out on Saturday, January 28th at 9 a.m. for the upcoming 2012 Arena Football League season at Silverbacks Sports Stadium in Atlanta.

Head Coach Dean Cokinos, along with his staff, will conduct the workout and evaluate the players. “From this open tryout, we will be looking to invite at least three players to our training camp starting in February,” said Cokinos. “It is a great opportunity for the players who will be in attendance. Hosting this workout in the Atlanta area should showcase some high level talent. The bottom line is that we are looking for tough, hard working, and talented players and this will be the first chance for potential candidates to showcase their abilities.”
