Provisional squad named for the 2010 American Football European Championship in Hessen Frankfurt

It’s slowly starting to get serious for the six nations participating in the continental American Football championship from July, 24th until 31st in Hessen. Due to the fact, that the European Association ordered the designation of the 75-man squad for each team. Only players from this pool are allowed to be nominated for the final 45-man squad of each team.
The staff responsible of the German national team was obviously prepared for this procedure. As early as last year tryouts took place, in which the best football players for the team were viewed and tested. Finally during a short training camp and the test game against Japan in April, the players were selected.
“We have done our homework long before hand. Of course there will be slight changes due to injuries and job-related shortages. But the core for the European Championship team was been decided on in consultation with the coordinators Brad Arbon and Walter Rohlfing for a while”, says top sports director Marshall Happer.
To be mentioned positively is that some players who were missing in spring for the important game against the vice-world champion’s Japan are not back in the team. Happer: “We are really happy that Lenny Green can play for us again. He is one of Germany’s best defensive back players.”
André Mathes will be another reinforcement for the team. The former Frankfurt Galaxy professional, had broken his fibula in preparation for the friendly game against Japan during a training camp in Duisburg. Fortunately the offensive line player will be fit just in time for the European Championship. Mathes wants battle through the pain barrier to secure the title.
Some players stand out from the team because of other reasons. The defensive line player Heinz Riemer is not only the tallest player measuring almost 6ft 11in; he’s also the heaviest weighing 352 pounds. Compared to Heinz Riemer, Hemaseh Heidary is as light as a feather. The Berlin player weighs 154 pounds which makes him Germany’s light weight. For David Seiffer from the Schwäbisch Hall Unicorns one does not need to roll out the measuring tape quite so far. The defensive back is the smallest player in the provisional squad measuring a little over 5ft 7in.
Of course, the German team’s goal is to win the championship title in their home country. The opening match on July, 24th in the Commerzbank-Arena against Austria will probably be decisive as to who will make it to the final.
