On a chilly day at N. Mt. Carmel Park in Hampton, 63 motivated and talented soccer players braved the weather in hopes of making the 2017 Georgia Revolution FC National Premier Soccer League roster. Playing with heart and skill, the Revs hopefuls gave Coach Mahaffey and his staff the difficult task of deciding who would move on to the next phase of tryouts.
“It’s exciting to see this many players attending tryouts and working so hard to make it to the invitation only phase of the process. We’ve now seen well over 100 players in two open tryouts with one more remaining,” says Revs General Manager Eric Morrison. “Most of the players have always been the best player on whatever teams they’ve played for and putting themselves out there in such a competitive environment says a lot about their ability and desire.”
After almost three hours of non-stop action, the coaching staff saw what they needed and selected 21 players to attend the team’s Invitation Only Tryout in March.
As a local team, the Revs depend on high quality players who are identified through open tryouts to build a winning team. The final open tryout for the 2017 NPSL team will be held at 2PM on 11 Feb.
