"Making the Cut" - Damon Cutno attempts to make Myrtle Beach Freedom roster

I love my job in sports journalism but I never imagined I'd be reporting here in South Carolina. Not that there's anything wrong with the Palmetto State. It's just, as a kid, I had dreams of being a professional athlete and couldn't yet see how South Carolina would play a part in that.  

After playing three sports for most of my high school career, I stayed on just long enough to have a cup of water with a division three football team in Delaware before I realized that while I loved football, I wasn't ready to make the sacrifices to play professionally.

But over the years, I've doubted whether I had made the right decision. What if I would have stuck with it? Where would football have taken me? Remarkably, maybe, right back here.

Last week, when the Myrtle Beach Freedom professional indoor football team held open tryouts, it offered me the chance to not only answer some of those lingering questions, but more importantly, it gave the opportunity to take you inside tryouts.
