ALBANY, Georgia – The 2011 Champion Albany Panthers are wasting no time in building another championship-caliber team under the direction of head football coach Lucious Davis, and will hold its second open tryout Saturday, January 21,2012 at Titus Sports Academy in Tallahassee, Florida. Registration will begin at 11 a.m. with the tryout starting at Noon.
“The open tryout is a great opportunity to find a diamond in the rough. Arguably some of the greatest players to play Arena Football were found at an open tryout,” said head football coach Lucious Davis. “Not only will we be looking for talent but we will be teaching the arena game, spreading awareness of this amazing game.”
Registration fee for all trying out will be $50 and due at the registration table prior to participating in the work out. The registration fee is non-refundable, and only cash will be accepted as a form of payment.
In addition to the registration fee, all participants will need to bring cleats to wear on a field turf surface, and other proper athletic attire for the outdoors. The tryout will consist of testing that includes the 40-yard dash and 20-yard short shuttle followed by specific arena football drills.
“Over 90 percent of your collegiate rosters nationwide have at least two or three athletes from the state of Florida,” said General Manager Will Carter. “I am looking forward to finding those gems at our workout in Tallahassee, Florida.”
