The Bemidji Axemen will be holding their annual free agent combine on Saturday, December 6 in Fargo, North Dakota.  The 2014 Free Agent Combine will be a one-day tryout located at two locations (The Sports Bubble & Sanford Power Center) in Fargo, ND.  The Axemen are looking to identify and evaluate potential prospects for the 2015 season and beyond.  There is the possibility of being signed to a training camp contract as well as being signed during the course of the season.

The combine will begin with registration at 8:30am on Saturday, December 6 at The Sports Bubble.  Testing will begin at 9:00am and will go through individual, group, and team drills.  Combine participants will break for lunch at 11:00am and the combine will continue at the Sanford Power Center in Fargo, ND at 12:30pm.  At the Power Center, testing will consists of the 40 yard dash, bench, vertical, broad jump, and 20 yard drill.  Please go to for descriptions if you have questions on testing.  Participants will not find a more thorough indoor combine experience as we film and break it down for all participants.  We will also be more than happy to pass your information on to other teams if we do not have the roster room to sign you.

*Kickers will not be evaluated at this tryout.  Kickers will be evaluated at a later date.
