The London Silverbacks were created with the mission of giving football athletes the chance to continue to play the game while also getting exposure and experience to pursue the next level. One great annual tradition continues at this weekend’s final tryouts with Toronto Argonauts GM/Vice-President of football operations Adam Rita in attendance.

Rita’s presence always adds extra excitement and energy to the event as players get a chance to receive a first hand look and possible personal instruction from a former CFL coach of the year and six-time Grey Cup winner.

It is these special opportunities that have contributed to the Silverbacks rapid growth and success in league play while helping players prepare for the next level of competition..
