Former MSU players getting another shot at grid iron with new amateur league



Coxworth plans to start a major sponsorship drive this month. He already has a team logo developed and has designed some T-shirts, as well.

The plan is to stay out of the way of the Mankato MoonDogs summer collegiate baseball team so that interest from the community doesn’t get spread too thin. Coxworth is also hoping to piggyback on the popularity of the Minnesota Vikings when they hit town at the end of July.

“We’re getting to the part now where it starts to get exciting,” he said. “The players don’t get paid, they’re just in it to have run and to live out a dream.

“I know some people may be skeptical but I’ve run into that before and I’ve succeeded. I think people will be surprised when they come check us out for the first time.”
