Today the team gathered at Rising Star Sports Camp for a workout.
This was the first time Roanoke's arena football team ran plays together.
Some of the players, like former Virginia Tech quarterback Al Clark, have never played in the Arena leagues before.
Getting used to the six-man team will be an adjustment.
