Yorkshire Academy Players Receive Training From Osi Umenyiora and Jason Bell

The Yorkshire Academy of American Football had a big year in 2018 Рbuilding on the success of the Leeds Academy to amalgamate a number of teams in the Yorkshire area into one impressively successful programme! If their first month of 2019 is anything to go by, however, this new year is going to be even more impressive!

The then Leeds Academy won an NFL UK thanksgiving competition, and though it’s taken quite some time to get the Academy and BBC NFL Show stars hooked up on the gridiron, this past Saturday both former NFL Stars, Two-Time Super Bowl Winner Osi Umenyiora and former NFL Cornerback Jason Bell stepped out with the Leeds Academy Assassins players for a once-in-a-lifetime training experience!

Osi and Jason lead drills, worked directly with players, and gave a speech to the gathered players ahead of training getting underway.
