Detailed player profiles will be forthcoming, but for now, the Nighthawks would like to thank all of the athletes that came to our tryouts and combine. We had the best players from around the Lower Mainland come out to vie for their spot in MLU, with wily veterans and young guns alike pushing each other for one of the coveted roster positions. We were happy to have such exemplary athletes looking to support our team, and for that we thank all those who came out. The focus now shifts to what will be a short but very productive pre-season practice schedule ahead of our first game on April 20th in Seattle.

We’ll look forward to introducing our fans to the Nighthawks during our home opener against San Francisco on April 27.
