Before tailgating this Saturday, June 9th, all season ticket holders are invited to a private, behind-the-scenes tour featuring the official Georgia Force locker room guided by team president Corey Remillard. Season ticket holders should meet at the front of the Arena at Gwinnett Center at 2:30 p.m. The tour will last approximately one hour.
The Force will take on the Jacksonville Sharks at 7 p.m. on Saturday at the Arena at Gwinnett Center. The AFL week 14 contest is a crucial match-up for the Force, as the first place in the South division is still up for grabs. When the Force met the Sharks earlier this season, they dominated the game, with a final score of 69-41. The Sharks will no doubt be looking for revenge and to keep their 3-game winning streak alive. The showdown will be streamed live on Ustream as well as televised on WSB’s MeTV 2.2, Comcast channel 248 and Charter channel 126.

With the March 12th opening game quickly approaching, the Georgia Force coaching staff has been diligently working to prepare for the 2012 Arena Football League season. Head Coach Dean Cokinos entered the off-season with a specific plan of evaluating and targeting players for the upcoming AFL season. With two try outs behind him and one slated for February 18th and a slew of recent signings, Cokinos, along with his coaching staff, are ready for the next challenge: training camp.
“As camp approaches, we are putting the finishing touches on logistics, the roster, and the staff,” stated Cokinos. “We are focusing on getting ready for the training camp with itineraries, scheduling, practice plans, playbooks, video coordination, physicals and things of that nature so when the first day of camp arrives, we can hit the ground running and let the players compete for a job.”
Cokinos is pleased with how the 2012 roster has come together thus far. “We are excited with the mixture of guys we have been able to sign to date, including returning Force players, AFL free agents, and other league free agents from the NFL and CFL collectively,” said Cokinos. “We targeted big, tough athletic players who love to play the game and compete on a daily basis.”
The AFL is a quarterback-driven league, and Cokinos believes the Force will be under excellent leadership with Darnell Kennedy returning and RJ Archers, who was recently assigned to the Force from Milwaukee. Overall, Cokinos believes that there is a lethal blend of size, speed, and strength on the roster. The last opportunity for potential players to compete for a spot on the team will be on February 18th at the Silverbacks Sports Center in Suwanee, Georgia. Information on the upcoming open try outs can be found on the Georgia Force website.
