Bowling Green, KY – When the summer of 2017 rolls around their will be a new predator seen roaming the football fields. The Bowling Green Red Wolves will start play as part of the Mid-South Football Alliance, a league that is home to teams from Ohio, Indiana, Kentucky, and Tennessee.
According to a statement from the team, the owner of the Red Wolves, Jeremy Hinton, knows full well what it takes to run a semi-pro football team. Hinton started playing semi-pro ball in 2012. When an off the field injury left him unable to play anymore he moved into management and even helped start the Kentucky Knights, a Professional Indoor Football team based in Owensboro, KY.
Hinton decided the time was right to venture out on his own, and that Bowling Green was an ideal location to set up shop. “I picked Bowling Green because of all the talent in this wonderful community”, Hinton said.
At the helm of the Red Wolves will be a familiar face, Kaelin Byrd, a former standout at Austin Peay University, who also had stint in the NFL with the New York Giants. Byrd also found success coaching the local Bowling Green Blitz, winning the Ohio Valley Football League Championship in 2001.
The Red Wolves will be holding tryouts at Auburn's McCutchens Coke Park on Saturday June 11th at 8 a.m. and Sunday June 12th at 3 p.m. Anyone interested in playing is encouraged to attend. You can follow along with the team on Facebook at www.facebook.com/bgredwolves
