    University of Illinois students interested in joining the Fighting Illini football team should attend an informational meeting at 1 p.m. on Monday, Aug. 26, in the squad room, which is located on the lower level of the football complex in the northeast tower of Memorial Stadium. Members of head coach Tim Beckman's staff will provide those in attendance with the materials and information they need to tryout and walk-on the Illini squad.

    To participate in the tryout, a student must be currently enrolled full-time at the University of Illinois and must show official documentation of having passed a physical, including a sickle cell test, within the last six months. If needed, students can get a physical exam, with sickle cell test, at the McKinley Health Center on campus.

    Students also must bring their University ID and are requested to show proof that they were NCAA Clearinghouse qualified after high school. Students with the proper documentation will have a tryout on Monday evening.

    If you have any questions on the meeting or tryout, please contact Marcus Berry at 217-333-1400 or
