What started out as a trip for the Cape Fear players after a great inaugural season has turned into a humanitarian endeavor.
Cape Fear Heroes owner and CEO Barbara Spigner announced Wednesday in a news conference that the team has formed a relationship with the Bahamas American Football Federation (BAFF) and will travel to Grand Bahama in November to hold football clinics.
The Heroes, who went undefeated and won the AIFA championship last season, will also hold open tryouts in Grand Bahama during that time for Bahamian players. Those who show promise may have the opportunity to play for Cape Fear in 2014.
The Heroes plan on making and keeping strong connections with the BAFF.
"We are doing this as a means to give promise to a nation," Spigner said. "We wanted to help out and increase diversity between both areas."
"At first, I didn't think it was real," Anthony said. "I've had offers before but what struck me was that the Heroes weren't trying to make this a one-time thing, which is why we agreed to do this."
The players were ecstatic about the news - perhaps no one more than wide receiver Jay Jackson.
"When I found out about the opportunity, the first thing I said is 'let me get my passport' because I am definitely ready," Jackson said. "I coach anyway, so this is in my field."
Jackson is one of six players from last year's squad signed for the 2013 season. The other five are wide receiver Tymere Zimmerman, offensive lineman Troy Bennett, defensive back JeRome Mann, and defensive linemen Dontre Brown and Quincy Malloy.
The Heroes also have signed two new players - quarterback Aries Nelson and wide receiver Tim Jones.

The AIF was recently informed that due to a serious illness to the owner of the Roc City Thunder, the team will not be able to move forward in 2013.
Jeff Teed, the principle owner has worked hard at keeping things going but unfortunately will be unable to proceed forward. After discussions with Mr. Teed, the AIF decided it was best to remove Rochester from the schedule for 2013 season and re-evaluate the situation in the future.
During the summer of 2012 Mr. Teed was diagnosed with a serious illness and in October he started treatment.
This past January, Mr. Teed’s heath started to fade again and he decided at this time he must devote all his efforts to his health and recovery. Other options were explored including bringing on additional investors to the team but the time frame was too short for a full evaluation. The AIF and the Roc City Thunder have decided the best option is to remove the Roc City Thunder from the 2013 league schedule and the AIF has revised the 2013 schedule.
The AIF and their member teams wish Mr. Teed the best and a speedy recovery in the battle against his illness.
The signed players just keep getting better and better!!!

Harrisburg Stampede Head Coach, Bernie Nowotarski announced today that he has signed 5 players for the 2013 Season.
As Training Camp approaches, the Stampede Coaching Staff is still working on bringing in players for the March 1 start date. In previous years Head Coach Nowotarski and Staff would bring in the League limit of 45 players to camp. The Stampede staff decided that this year they would be more selective in their player search. We are only bringing in maybe 33 or 34 players. We plan on practicing March 1st and game planning for our opening game on March 16th. We just don’t have enough time to fairly and properly evaluate 45 players. We want to get right down to business and be ready for opening night, commented Coach Nowotarski.
The Stampede has certainly strengthened its roster in the last 10 days with the signing of Vincent Tiberi, Mark Stout, Brian Bradford, Jamaal Stokes and todays signing of Shaquane Madison. Tiberi and Bradford were among the League leaders last season in tackles, sacks and creating problems for opponants. Stout has been a long-time fixture with Coach Nowotarski, but he gets ready every season and helps to keep QB EJ Nemeth protected. His experience is also invaluable to the rookies and younger linemen. Stokes is another experienced vet who can play both sides of the ball at WR or DB. Stokes will be reporting to Stampede camp as he finishes up his Military Boot Camp for the National Guard. Madison is another two-way player on the OL and DL. This is another Stampede Linemen that has size and strength and Indoor experience.
We are looking forward to Training Camp and getting ready for our Home Opener on Saturday March 16th. We have a lot of work to do in a very short time, but it’s just part of our philosophy to “Work Together, Win Together, remarked Nowotarski.
Just a Reminder: The Stampede has their Home Opener on Saturday March 16th at 5pm and you can get your tickets through the Stampede Web Site
The York Capitals are bringing football closer than you’ve ever imagined. Only a padded sideline dasher separates fans and 300-pound linebackers. Fans can feel the hits, hear the grunts, and talk to the players. However, when the play stops, the music starts, the York Capitals dance team will take the field to entertain fans of all ages.
If you have ever dreamed of dancing for a professional sports team, now is your chance!
