At the recent tryouts for the Baltimore Charm of the Lingerie Football League in Frederick about 100 women showed up, a team spokesperson said.

Tryouts tested female athletes in various football drills, including shuttles, 40-yard dash, read and recognition and various football challenges including tackling, receiving and passing. They also took a psychological interview.

About 40 athletes from the tryout will be invited to compete at a minicamp in April. If they last beyond minicamp, they will be among 30 players invited to training camp to compete for the final roster of 20 players.

The Charm, which went 1-3 in the 10-team league last season, is scheduled to host their home opener at First Mariner Arena on Oct. 22.
