Second combine deemed a success

January 12, 2005 - National Indoor Football League (NIFL) - RiverCity Rage News Release

Thirty-nine hopefuls were put through their paces by the Rage football staff over the weekend at The Game in Glen Carbon, IL. The players were run through the normal gamut of tests and then had a chance to shine at positional specific drills under the watchful eyes of the Rage Coaching Staff and Ownership Group. A wide variety of experience and skill level of players were on hand to display their wares.

"The quality of this group was much stronger than our tryout back in November. I don't envy the coaches having to whittle this group down to a handful to invite to camp," stated Scott Wilson, one of the Rage Majority Owners.

The Rage will have one final opportunity for players wanting to catch the eye of the coaching staff. That Open Tryout Combine will be held on February 5, 2005 at The Game Arena beginning at 9 AM.

"After our final combine, we will select the players we will start our practices with on February 26. Right now we feel good about the talent level we have had to choose from, but of course, you always are anxious to take one last look to see what might be out there," stated Rage Head Football Coach Mike Wyatt.
