GRAND FORKS, ND (WDAZ-TV) -- If you've ever wanted to play professional football, tomorrow is your chance to get a start.

The Tri-City Northstars, a semi-pro team located here in Grand Forks is holding an open try-out for anyone who wants a shot at making the team.

Participants will compete in various pro-style football drills such as the 40-yard-dash, benchpress, vertical jump, and cone drills.

The team is looking to fill about ten spots on its roster.

Try-outs will be held at the UND High Performance Center.

"We're really just looking for players and bodies that perform at a high-level.
