Rampage set roster for camp

The Georgia Rampage finalized its roster for the preseason camp, which begins Saturday and concludes Sunday at Athletic Edge in Dalton.

Dalton’s indoor professional football team will invite players from Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, South Carolina and Tennessee. The 43-player roster — 24 on offense and 19 on defense — will be trimmed to 23 players when the Rampage play their preseason opener at 7 p.m. Feb. 15 in the trade center, where the team plays its home games.

Tickets for that game and the upcoming regular season home games are available for purchase on GARampage.com.

The team, which competed in the Ultimate Indoor Football League last season, is one of the ground-breakers in the newly formed X-League. The regular season begins next month and the team will host five games, the first on March 3 against the Alabama Outlawz.

Of the players invited to camp, the ones returning from last season’s 3-5 team are: defensive back Patches Burgess; linebacker Albert “Bam Bam” Catron; wide receiver C.J. Dial; linebacker/wide receiver Travis Ledbetter; offensive lineman Chris Love; defensive backs Akeen Scruggs and Aldrickious Shumate; and defensive end Lammond Williams.
