I joined the arena football players at training camp just before their season kicks off on March 23.  It was pretty intimidating but a great workout.  I ran through cone drills for speed, learned how to back pedal for being a defensive back and then tried catching the ball while running.  Wide Receiver Tiger Jones said I would probably end up being a defensive back because catching the ball wasn’t my strong point.  The home opening game for the Soul in April 13 against Cleveland.  For tickets check out philadelphiasoul.com.
