Forget bulldogs, gamecocks, tigers, or what have you. Charleston Man of War, a part of the fledgling U.S. International Football Organization, is finding a niche in the football-crazed Carolinas, hosting tryouts at Charleston’s first ever combine, with the goal of building the best football team in the world. “The combine will test the player’s physical abilities,” explains general manager Kekoa Lee. “There will be a bench press test, 40-yard dash, vertical jump, and two agility drills.” Former Vanderbilt University football coach Bobby Johnson will be on hand as prospective players put their skills to the test, eventually picking the ones he wants back to tryout for the Charleston Man of War football team. With no true season, league, or schedule, the independent football team will play only home games in the Charleston area, scheduling one game or “fight” at a time, only revealing its next opponent afterward. Charleston Man of War will support the Shaw Community Center as its main charity, which benefits underprivileged children living along the east side of downtown Charleston. Registration for participants will begin at 8 a.m. with the combine commencing at 10 a.m. A $10 registration fee is required for participants, while a $5 donation to the Shaw Community Center is encouraged. Spectators may watch for free.
