Mountain Lions Open Player Tryouts set for this weekend

While the NFL and its players await news as to whether or not their season will even occur, the Sacramento Mountain Lions of the United Football League will be holding two open player tryouts in Sacramento this weekend. The first tryout will be on Saturday at Foothill High and on the second will be on Sunday at Natomas High. Both tryouts will start at 9 a.m. and finish at noon.
If you are worried as to whether they will pick anyone up, don’t be, as they added two players already – tight end Dominique Jones and defensive end Brian Coulter. Both players were picked up in a tryout that was held in southern California earlier in the month. They are looking for players at all positions. Athletes will be timed in the 40-yard dash and will participate in a series of individual and team drills.
If you are interested, or know someone who should be, you can register online at here or register in person 7:30-8:45 a.m on the day of the tryout.
“Our entire coaching staff is excited about the opportunity to have these tryouts,” Green said. “All the players who came (to tryouts) last year worked hard and quite a few made it to training camp.”
Dennis Green’s Mountain Lions went 4-4 last season and look to build onto their young organization.
Although the Mountain Lions’ schedule has not been finalized, the season will begin in August. Ticket information will be available soon at
