Paul’s Answer

Hi Noel
I know that many states and cities have organized semi-professional football leagues and teams. Former college stars and players who love to play are usually found in these organizations. I knew a place kicker who played well into his late forties in one of these leagues. This can provide some valuable experience and coaching from people within the football system. NFL teams also hold open tryouts, usually twice a year, where you can demonstrate your skills and abilities. If you are good enough it can lead to a free agent agreement, and you can tryout for the NFL team at its summer camp for a chance to make the real team. This is how Vince Papale, from the book Invinsible, made his path to the NFL. Also check out the Indoor Football League. There are also tryouts for this league, which can also provide you with experience and opportunities.

Paul recommends the following next steps:

Look up online and see if there is a semi-professional league or team in your region to join
Check online and see if there are NFL tryouts or IFL indoor football league tryouts in your region
