BAFA (British American Football Association) are delighted to announce the CFL (Canadian Football League) try-outs will again be held at SGS College. This invitational only event will be taking place on Saturday 5 March 2022.
This year over 20 athletes will be showcasing themselves to hopefully catch the eyes of scouts and teams around the CFL and gain an invite to the CFL Combine in Toronto at the end of March. There will be two SGS Degree student athletes taking part in the event as well, Defensive Lineman, Joe Marton and Linebacker, Joe Christian.
Previous UK players drafted include David Izinyon and Tigie Sankoh; an SGS College & Pride graduate. Sankoh was first signed in the NFL with the Browns before being taking number 3 overall in the CFL International Draft.
“It is exciting to have the CFL combine back at SGS College and to have two of our own students taking part is tremendous for our programme”
said Coach Herod, SGS College.
The PRIDE is now recruiting for their Sept 2022 Academic season for both their sixth form and university programs. You can find out more by visiting their Instagram (@filtonpride) or their website www.sgscol.ac.uk/american-football
