PITMAN — Robert Kling Jr. initially played only soccer during the fall sports season at Vineland High School.

But Kling, who graduated from Vineland in 2017, decided to become the kicker on the football team during his junior and senior seasons and set multiple program records.

Kling, 19, was among the 100-plus athletes who attended an open tryout for the Atlantic City Blackjacks at Virtua Total Turf Experience on Saturday.

“This is ridiculously incredible,” said Ron Jaworski, the AFL executive committee chair and majority owner of the Philadelphia Soul. “The effort and energy that a lot of people put into this, to see it finally come to fruition today, to me, professional football is now in Atlantic City.”

The athletes, who ranged from first-timers to experienced players, were tested in various drills, including the 40-yard dash, short shuttle, position-specific drills and one-on-ones.

Kling competed in drills with about seven kickers, nailing field goals from different ranges.

“I think I did pretty good,” Kling said, who said he holds Vineland records for the most extra points in a season, career and game and career field goals. “I (feel) pretty confident. We had a good group out today. Some kids (were) very experienced.”

Tamburrah Davis, a 2007 Egg Harbor Township graduate and a Pleasantville resident, competed for a spot at linebacker but said he would play whichever position the team needs.
