ST. CLOUD -- Forty-two men who didn't want to let their football dreams die will suit up for central Minnesota's newest semi-pro football team tomorrow.

They kick off their season against the Twin City Rhinos in Minneapolis.

The Granite City Renegades is a new team owned by Brett and Danielle Weaver. The Sartell couple first met while with the now-defunct Minnesota Fighting Scots.

Brett Weaver says this team is made up of guys in their late teens to mid 30's who still have a passion for the game. He says games are played on Saturdays and are a family-friendly event.

The Granite City Renegades will play their home games at Clemens Stadium at St. John's University. They play eight regular season games, followed by playoffs. Tickets are $7 for adults, $2 for kids.

The home opener on May 21st is also Veterans Appreciation Day where vets can get into the game free.
