OFFENSIVE LINE COACH
What got you into American Football to start with? Did you play any contact sport beforehand?
I got into American Football through movies and then eventually watching NFL on TV. I had played rugby most of my childhood.
What was your career like at the UniBall Level?
I knew I wanted to play American Football when i went to uni. After dabbling in some RB work I was moved to O-Line because of my blocking prowess. the O-Line at Essex Blades was in need of guys in particularly a C after a few sessions practising I was moved to starting C. I started every game going forward for 3 years playing C and occasionally OG, NT, and featuring heavily on ST as a LS amongst other duties. As I became more experienced I was made captain most games.
Why did you start coaching American Football?
I wanted to continue to remain around American Football and help other players become better players and better people. I feel coaches provide a special service in moulding players to become great players and people.
What advice would you have for a person interested in playing American Football?
Just turn up, there is a place for everybody who wants to be a part of a american football team.
What are you looking forward to the most this season with the City Wolfpack?
