Augusta 706ers hold basketball tryouts

COLUMBIA COUNTY, GA (WFXG) - The Augusta 706ers held their first open tryouts earlier today with dozens of men lined up to get on the court.  The team is looking for 14 men to fill the roster this year.

This is an opportunity for these men to gain experience and take the next step to playing professional basketball. Scott Killebrew, President and CEO of Augusta Professional Sports, said this day is surreal and he is excited for the season. "It's amazing, seeing guys filling out paperwork and shooting the balls around and getting warmed up, it makes it real. It's really exciting and it's going to be a great thing not only for these athletes but for the city of Augusta as a whole."
