San Diego CA— The Strike Force announced their final open workouts in prep for the 2020 IFL season in Southern California for the weekend of January 25 & 26.

San Diego Strike Force defensive end Ralph Harvey (Houston) is among the currently rostered players who received a contract offer following an open workout invite. After attending an in-season event in the spring of 2019, Ralph joined the Strike Force for the team’s final six games and finished second on the team with 40 (23 solos) total tackles.

Once the testing portion has concluded, participants will be broken up into position categories and led through individual position drills. After position drills, skill position players will also go through a passing session including 1-on-1’s.
Participants are encouraged to bring outdoor football cleats (rubber or plastic cleats only, metal will not be permitted). They should also bring any other gear (braces, gloves, etc.) they may need to perform. Participants must be at least 18 years of age.
