Charleston Man-of War

Charleston has had many new sporting adventures in the last few years. Some of them have failed, and others, like the South Carolina Stingrays, Charleston RiverDogs and Charleston Battery have succeeded.

Football, though, has been relegated, with only semi-pro professional teams. High school and college teams are very well supported. This team, though, will be a international team. They have no affiliation with any league. They are supported by former Vanderbilt coach Bobby Johnson.

This team has no schedule. There are four other unaffiliated opponents, including the Washington D.C. Explosion, New Jersey Invaders, Madrid's Oso de Rivas, and the Beijing Guardians.

The team is having combines on June 2 at Stoney Field in downtown Charleston. To learn more, follow the @CharlestonMoW Twitter feed, Facebook friend them at Charleston Man-of War, or go to their website,

Hopefully, the administration of this team can lead to a USFL team.
