Open Tryout Brings Local Talent Galore

01/08/2010 6:38 PM -

The Jacksonville Sharks held the first of many tryouts for the expansion franchise. 40-degree temperatures, rain and threats of snow didn't stop some of Jacksonville's finest from showcasing their talents for the town and the Sharks coaching staff.

Over 150 people from the Jacksonville area arrived at the practice field Friday early Friday morning. Near record lows, cloudy skies and threats of rain were no match for the determination and desires of these gridiron warriors. Players with resumes ranging from high school stand outs to collegiate starters took the field to show Les Moss and his coaching staff that they had what it takes to become a Shark.
