Albany -- The South Georgia Wildcats will begin their season for a few months, and held an open tryout Saturday at Albany State.

About fifty-players were on the field at ASU, running through drills and conditioning, and looking to catch the coaches eye.

The Wildcats lost a lot of players from last years ten-win playoff team, and were hoping to find some replacements at the tryout.

Coach Derek Stingley seems finding a diamond in the rough at the audition's every season, and says the Cats success last year has made South Georgia an attractive option for AF2 players.

"We lost the majority of our team," says Stingley, "whether through different leagues, or retirement, and with the success of our team, more people want to come out and play for us. It's big that we hold camps like this so we can help fill the team for next year."

The Wildcats open the season March 29th at Tennessee Valley.
