Throwback Thursday: Unveiling of the RailHawks name

#TbT:  Most Thursdays, TSF will take a look back at the history of Carolina RailHawks Football Club through artifacts, pictures, stories, videos, and the recollections of our membership

As Triangle-area soccer fans awaited the first season of their new soccer team, they were treated to a number of exhibitions by Triangle Professional Soccer including a Rhinos v. Silverbacks pre-season match, a US National Team friendly v. Jamaica, and a Charleston Battery that saw phenom in the making (or overhyped teenager) Freddy Adu play before a crowd at SAS Soccer Park.

On July 19, 2006, fans finally learned the nickname of their new soccer club when the RailHawks moniker and new logo were revealed at the halftime interval of a match between a USL All-Star side and Sheffield Wednesday of England's Championship.  

Many know that TSF's president Jarrett Campbell was the winner of the name the team contest which generated the team's name, but do you know the origin of the name?  Check out Campbell's account for more information.
