Though we’re deep in the British National Leagues offseason, the Edinburgh Wolves had cause for celebration with week as they shared the success of one of their own – Quarterback Jamie Morrison has signed with the Prague Mustangs for the upcoming 2019 season!
The Wolves celebrated on their Facebook page, noting that Morrison is the programme’s first player to earn the opportunity to play football on the continent:
“Years of hard work and dedication to the sport has paid off as he becomes the first ever Wolves player to head over to the mainland and play football.”
The Mustangs play in the Czech League of American Football’s (ČLAF) Division 3 North, with Prague itself boasting five different programmes as the central hub of American Football in the Czech Republic.
Though a great achievement for Morrison himself, it’s likely his absence will be felt in the upcoming season as the Wolves seek to improve on their 4-6 record from 2018. With BAFA likely to once again consider reducing the top tier of the British game to ten teams, having deferred doing so this offseason, the Wolves will be eager to ensure they’re able to maintain their top-tier status this summer, but will now need to do so with their ‘face of the franchise’ QB.
