Sarasota- The Suncoast Millionaires announced the return of Ex-NFL player Earnest P. Givins Jr. as head coach of the highly accomplished minor league football team. As an ex-NFL star, Givins brings a wealth of talent and athletic insight to a team notable for their past winning spirit. His professional career began in 1986 as a wide receiver with the Houston Oilers when picked in the second round of the NFL 1986 draft. Nine of Givins' 10 seasons in the NFL were played with the Oilers which included a two-time selection for the 1990 and 1992 Pro Bowl. He was recognized for his celebration dances after a touchdown in which many passes came through the hands of legendary quarterback, Warren Moon. Givins' career stats include 571 receptions, 8,215 receiving yards, and 49 touchdowns.
As a member of the Florida Football Alliance, the Suncoast Millionaires would like to welcome back head coach Earnest Givins to the team with anticipation of an unprecedented season of success.
The team will be looking to recruit new and dedicated players for their upcoming 2016/2017 season.

The weekly battle on the gridiron doesn't take place just in youth, high school, college and pro football leagues. Thousands of adults play football in hundreds of semi-pro leagues around North America. Unlike pro football, which covers the entire United States, semi-pro leagues are generally regional in nature and may play by different rule sets, but they still have rivalries and championships that are just as important to these players as the Super Bowl.

The semi-pro leagues consist of athletes, both men and women, who play solely for the love of the game. The moniker "semi-pro" may sound impressive, but the reality is that this term really stands for "amateur." Teams are made up of a wide range of athletes, from former high school stars who didn't go to college, to ex-pro players and college players, to couch potatoes. Not only do they not get paid, but also many players must pay dues to participate.

Still, that's not much sacrifice to the men and women who suit up to play their favorite sport. If you want to join their ranks, you should know a few things before you try out. Click through our 10 tips to help you get ready for a successful semi-pro football career.
