Mountain Lion hopefuls have day in the sun – Photos

Del Oro High School football field was the place to be for Mountain Lions tryouts

Over 120 men braved the heat on Sunday to earn a spot on the Sacramento Mountain Lions football team. Some players drove from out of state to attend the tryouts at the Del Oro High School football field in Loomis.


Players were reminded to “have fun and hydrate!”

Staying cool was one of the challenges facing those who came out for a chance to make the team.

As temperatures quickly climbed into the 90′s by noon, the open tryouts were up to full speed on the field.
