The Nebraska Danger indoor football team is preparing to kick off its second season, with games beginning in February. But before those start, the coaches are looking to fill the open spots on their roster.
For Taray Adkins, playing football has always been a passion.
"It's just my thing. I love the contact, I love the excitement, I love the fans, everything that involves football," Adkins says.
And now he's hoping to bring that enthusiasm, and his talents, to the Danger. He's just one of the athletes vying for a position on the team's 2012 roster.
Team Owner Charlie Bosselman says there are still a couple spots left to fill.
"Last year we had our open tryout and we ended up signing two good guys that stayed on the team," Bosselman says.
The open tryouts attracted players from as far away as Baltimore and Minnesota, as well as cities across Nebraska.
Head Coach Mike Davis says the new players will join a team he's already feeling confident about, going into the season.
"Last year we had our bumps in the road, we got off the ground really late and now we've got things in full motion and the team's coming together pretty well," Davis says.
In only it's second season, the Danger has already attracted a big following.
"Most of the games were all sold out, we led the league in attendance, fans were voted #1 fans in the Indoor Football League," Bosselman says.
It's a trend the team's management expects will continue, thanks to strong season ticket sales already for 2012.
