If you are traveling around Florida, Daytona Beach is easy to reach via Interstate 95 or Interstate 4. Daytona Beach International Airport is served by several major airlines with service from more than 150 destinations worldwide.

Daytona Beach is famous for being the birthplace of NASCAR and the home of Daytona International Speedway, which hosts the Daytona 500 -- The Super Bowl of stock car racing each February. It is also known for hosting Bike Week and Biketoberfest -- two of the world's biggest motorcycle events - -each March and October. The Ladies Professional Golf Association (LPGA) also calls its home to Daytona Beach, which also features an eclectic offering of cultural and historical opportunities.

A three-year National Indoor Football League veteran, Ervin Bryson begins the task of building a successful franchise in Daytona Beach.

The 35-year old Bryson comes to Florida after a year with the Sioux City Bandits, where he served the final six games of the 2004 regular season as interim coach with a 4-2 record. The Bandits lost in the first round of the playoffs to the Omaha Beef on a last-minute play where a fan deflected would would have been a game-winning catch.

A native of Abbeville, South Carolina, Bryson coached the Winston-Salem Energy in its inaugural year in 2002, guiding the team to a 6-8 record and garnering the league’s coach of the year.

At Abbeville High School, Bryson was a four-year starter in football and earned All-State honors as a running back and defensive back. He was named the Class AA Player of the Year in football and track and also garnered all-conference baseball honors.

He had tryouts with Pittsburgh, Tampa Bay and Seattle in the NFL, and was on the preseason roster of the NFL-Europe’s Frankfurt Galaxy before being released.

Playing semi-pro football in Concord, North Carolina, Bryson rushed for over 2,000 yards in a season. He became the coach for the American Football Association’s Greenwood Raiders from 1997-99, leading the team to a national championship and earning the league’s 1997 general manager of the year award.

Located just 400 feet from the World's Most Famous Beach, the Ocean Center is a popular multi-use facility that hosts a variety of conventions, tradeshows, concerts, banquets, family entertainment shows and sporting events.
