China Kicking Off This Month!!

BvADYnNIAAIS3gl.png large
Indoor football is a logical fit in China due to the fact that it already has the infrastructure in place to support the game.

I China is more geared to arena football because they don’t have the stadiums built, They have arenas all major city and there’s 20 cities that’s way bigger than New York that already have government-owned arenas built.

They’ve tested the waters by holding an exhibition between two AFL All-Star teams in Beijing back in November. Despite there being well over one billion people in the country, China is a largely untapped market in terms of American football for now.

Most are confident that this foray into China will ultimately be a successful and lucrative one for all involved!

10502434_812106808811177_6224083396333911273_n
The GFL play-off picture is set as there’s one more week to play. In the North the Berlin Adler will face the Düsseldorf Panther and in the South the Allgäu Comets vs the Stuttgart Scorpions. The Scorpions lead the south for much of the season as they battled Hall back and forth for the top spot. That spot now belongs to Hall by only 2 points after a win this weekend over the Scorpions. The Canes and Unicorns have met a total of 6 times and took a 3 to 3 split. But the hard things for the Canes to forget is that 2 of those loses came in the German Bowl !! It will be a very intense game win the Canes make the long journey from Kiel to Schwabisch Hall for a 2nd QT-Finals face off next weekend !! Then you have the Monarchs D ranked 4th in our books vs the Mercenaries O that’s ranked 3rd. The Monarchs leader on D, D.Donaldson DB comes in the game with 76 Tackles and 1 sack. Marburg’s QB M.Brown has racked up a total of 4400 plus yards this season and will be looking to add to that come game time. Lets not for get the Monarch’s O lead by QB J.Welshs who’s totalled almost 3000 yards with 1000 plus yard receiver G.Rioux and 1300 yard clubber T.Deed rushing. The top team in Europe New Yorker Lions look to handle the Munich Cowboys and many see that taking place. The Cowboys aren’t a push over team but they Lions have just seem to be to be the strongest team in Germany. Falcons of Cologne will take on the Stuttgart Scorpions. Falcons opened eyes and are ranked 3rd in the North after a poor 2013 season! This game should be a barn burner !

BoomFootball’s Steven Frank Oswego IL QB

Oswego’s Steven Frank (2016) Checks in – By Gus Ramos

Oswego kicked off their season with a bang! After only playing 6 minutes of the game on Friday night before play was suspended due to the weather. They defeated reigning State Champions Batavia High School on the final play of the game Saturday night. Steven Frank (2016) ended the game with 4 touchdowns and 256 yards through the air.

“It was like a movie, stuff like that doesn’t happen to normal people,” said Frank.

September 1st didn’t just mark a free day off of school for the talented signal caller. It marked the official start for college programs to be able to contact 2016 prospects through email and social media outlets.

Just hours into the day Frank was contacted by members of several college programs.

“So far Illinois, Miami of Ohio, Wisconsin, Indiana, Utah, and Iowa”

The good news continued throughout the day as the Panthers were greeted by a familiar face when they returned to practice Monday. 2013 All Conference Wide Receiver Zach West (2015) decided to rejoin his teammates after taking the entire summer off to focus on basketball.

“It feels good to have him, but I also have two great receivers Joe and Ryan who can get the job done as well. It’s more like having an extra weapon now.”

With the Frank-West connection set to be reunited Week 4 once he completes the mandatory IHSA practice rules. The Panthers could be an even bigger threat to their opponents once the offense has West added into the mix.

“I think if he works hard and the rest of the team does we can be special.”

Frank and the Panthers will face off with Waubonsie Valley High School this week. They faced each other twice last season and the Panthers ended their season during the second round of the playoffs.

“We are trying to go out and make another statement against a good team and the momentum into the conference games,” said Frank.

Marburg Bombed By Comets!!!

10656666_851128684898307_1764428626_n

In one of many thrilling games from this weekend. The Allgaeu Comets found their self in a dog fight with the Marburg Mercenaries. The Comets have proven that they belong with the big boys but it hasn’t been all that easy for them this season as it has been in the past. Facing the Mercenaries for the second and final time for this season the Comets wanted to make a statement. Marburg sneaked pass the Comets in the first meeting 28-27 in a close, and yet again the stage in Marburg was set for yet another slobber knocker. The Comets struck first when Jackson hit Webb for a 29yd score. That was the only points put up in the first Qt. The Mercenaries veteran Rb P.Trumpfhelle took it upon himself to put the first points on the broad for his team has he took one in from 5yds out. But the Comets Qb Shane Jackson put the passing skills to work scoring back to back drives to take the lead 20-7. Mercenaries Qb M.Brown then went to the air himself and found luke McCann on the next two drives to go up 21-20. Then after getting the ball back in his hands Brown hit Luster from 13 out to go up 28-20. The Mercenaries Brown found himself with the ball yet again but the drive was cut short with a strong effort by the Comets D. Comets Mofondo came up big with a big special teams punt block for a Td and with a 2pt conversion it was knotted up at 28. Time was ticking and the home team had to make something shake. After the kick off Brown took the field and on the first play from the Comets 44 Brown hit Luster to take the lead 35-28. It seemed to be over as some seen it but Jackson and the Comets wasnt done. Jacks compleated 3 straight before taking a TO. Now Marburg would be back on their hills and after 2 incomplete passing they got laxed and Jackson hit Hafels from 25 out with no time on the ticker to win the game 36-35.

With 2000+ on hand at the site in Berlin it was a must win game vs the Monarchs. And early on both defenses played a stellar game holding each other 0-0 in the first quarter. It was Monarchs kicker J.Hilgenfeldt who put the first points on the broad with a 46 yard field goal first 3-0 Dresden. Adlers QB D.Outlaw struck back quick with a 3 yard touchdown pass to D.Voehringer to go up 7-3 Adlers. It was pretty much back and forth the whole game. Monarchs QB J.Welsh threw a strike to go up 10-7 Monarchs. Then before you knew it the Adler took flight on the wings of Outlaw. After a 27yd Td pass to Naranjo-Gonz, Outlaw himself ran 2 Td’s in to go up 28-10. Outlaw was 20-29 for 253 yds 2 Td’s 78yds being his longest completion to Anderson who hauled in three catches for 103 yds. Monarch QB J.Welsh had a hard day but managed. He was 15-35 with 254 yds 2Tds. Defense was the name of the game and it came down to who was hungry and wanted it more and it was the Berlin Adler. BA 28 – DM 17

On Saturday night the Troisdorf Jets takes the battle with a 42: 41 win over the Cologne Crocodiles with one week left for their fate in the GFL2. The Bonn Gamecocks had a big against the Bielefeld Bulldogs (27:10) shortly before to further sink the Bulldogs, this was a must win game for the Jets, to avoid landing in the drop zone. The spectators of that Jets game was given that evening football at high voltage. With the Jets QB 5 Z.Cavanaugh 290 passing yards with 4 TD’s it was a long night for the Crocodiles secondary. Jets Wide out R.Ket had 3 of those alone hauling in 9 balls for 175yrds. The ground game was also big for the Jets in the game. Cavanaugh lead the team with 105yrds with 2 TD’s. Jets RB N.Chatz chiped in with 91. D.Graves lead the Cologne attack but the crocodiles star that night was RB M.Davis rushing for 242yrds on 23 attempts but only added 1 TD to the mix.

The final is set for Sweden!!

16862_1

During Saturdays game you could see it would be decided early which two teams would play for the gold medal next Sunday, September 7, at Tele2 Arena in Stockholm.

As many tipped in advance, it was a fairly easy victory for Carlstad who pulled away from the start and won 64-7.

In Tyreso however, it became much more exciting. Just like last year when the Orebro Black Knights went Stockholm to play the semifinals.
The match initially looked to be a one-sided affair when Örebro savior, newcomer Joe Clancy, already on the first drive of the game found an open receiver who ran it 80-yards for a touchdown and Örebro went to the halftime break with the lead 0-19.

In the second half, however, came Tyreso again and with just minutes remaining reduced it to 13-19, and on the following kickoff was decided to attempt an onside kick. It failed, however, to take the ball back and Orebro could run out of time, apart from all the way to the final whistle before Tyreso got possession of the ball again.
With only seconds left on the clock but for Tyresö QB Billy Greene, time had ran out and the match was over. The end result 13-19 and the 2014 final will be a replay of 2013, Crusaders vs Black Knights!

Monarchs cage the Falcons!!

IMG_4290

The pressure was there. It was, however, for both teams. Dresden, after counterpart Kiel won on Saturday, urgently respond with a win to secure second place and hoping for home advantage in the play-offs.

Dresdens Quarterback Jeff Welsh served early Tyson Garnham with a 75Yard touchdown pass (PAT blocked 0: 6). Cologne took a while to respond. This they did at the beginning of the second quarter, first with a field goal by Philip 25Yard Stentzel. Dresden laid by. Trevar Deed ran across the short distance to the Monarchs second touchdown (PAT blocked again 0:12) – and it looked like a dominant idea of the Saxons. But Cologne berappelte itself. The ensuing kickoff was the strong Falcons running back Steven Strother post haste to connect touchdown (PAT Stentzel 10:12). Although Dresden was able to submit by another touchdown on Deed. But with the extra points, the worm was now definitely in there. This time failed attempt at conversion, and so it was “only” 10:18. Not enough to really settle. An invitation for the hosts, who they accepted gratefully. Quarterback Robert Demers sent Alexander Tounkara-Kone with a 60Yard pass in the end zone. And football Oldie Estrus Crayton showed the Monarchs as a proper conversion goes. Compensation: 18:18. Half time!

Anyway: Dresden came with Kampfes- and will to win from the start. Cologne had to give the ball quickly. A bad pass from Demers read gave the Monarchs offense the ball on the 28 yard line of the Falcons – and Trevar Deed made ​​short work (PAT Hilgenfeld 18:25). Then Cologne left the fortune. Two drives they worked focused forward. twice they were close to the end zone. Two times they decided to field goal. And twice we went wrong. In the first experiment Stentzel hit the yellow crossbar. The second Blockley the Monarchs little later. At the beginning of the last quarter Guillaume Rioux made ​​a remarkable catch the sack to: touchdown after a pass from 14Yard Welsh (PAT Hilgenfeld 18:32). Cologne plowed, but Dresden scorte. First, the Monarchs offense ran textbook ripe long with the clock. And Trevar Deed closed the last Saxon Drive consistently with his fourth touchdown from (PAT Hilgenfeld 18:39). Cologne came eight seconds before closing again in the end zone. Tim Have Droeze caught a 40Yarder of Demers (PAT Stentzel 25:39). On winning score that changed nothing.

The Dresden Monarchs have shown especially in the second half an impressively concentrated power. So they are now back in front of Kiel. With a win next Sunday at Euro Bowl winner Berlin Dresden could secure second place final.

Ohio is top state in the Midwest for prep Football!!

Aug 27 2014

A pair of Ohio teams remain at No. 1 and 2 in the Midwest Region despite wins from teams from Indiana and Missouri last week.

St. Edward (Lakewood, Ohio) and Archbishop Moeller (Cincinnati) did not play last week, but they still come in at No. 1 and 2 respectively. Lee’s Summit West and Blue Springs of Missouri both won their openers, as did Ben Davis and Warren Central from Indiana. There were no changes among the top seven teams in the rankings. St. Edward who’s ranked 3rd in the nation they will open the season vs Gilman of Baltimore on Aug 31 at 4pm. Gilman is seen to be one of the hardest games this year for St. Ed. With a 11-2 record from last season St. Ed looks to better that this season as the return six starters on offense and seven on the defensive side of the ball. Brett Kean returns for his senior season will call the shots for an offense that should put up points in bunches. He will have a lethal set of weapons in Alex Stump and the Dowell brothers, David and Andrew. The defense should offer just as much firepower and experience with a core of Troy Dipre and Troy Henderson stuffing the run and Shaun Crawford patrolling the secondary.
