David Beale

David Beale
Grösse: 6`5 (196cm)
Gewicht: 287 lbs (130 Kg)
Position: OL
Alter: 27 Jahre
1. What interested you on making your commitment to Switzerland?
I'd say the biggest reason that persuaded me to play in Switzerland is from what information my mother and father told me when they honey-mooned there. Describing how beautiful the country was and the layout. Switzerland has been a country I've wanted to play in since being introduced to American football in Europe.
2. What college and or team have you previously attended or played for?
I was recruited by Fordham University in New York coming out of my senior year in high school; my only division 1 offer. I met with coaches from Ohio Northern University (Division 3) as my first stop in my recruiting fair. I took a visit the summer before my fall enrollment and got a good feel for the campus. It was a small liberal arts college in Ada, Ohio where they produce the Wilson football. Just my style. I couldn't pass up the chance to play powerhouse Mount Union either!
3. What is your favorite football moment of your career?
I scored 8 touchdowns my 2nd year of playing organized football in middle school in an 8-game season. A little nostalgic but still a big feat for me as a tight end. That, and I still hold the Haines City High School punting record for furthest punt (71 yards).
4. Name one individual goal and one team goal you have for the 2018 season.
My individual goal(s) would be to let up zero sacks at left tackle and help our running back rush for 1000 yards in a season. Our overall goal as a team should be to get to the final championship game. I plan to help Bern in any way possible.
5. How would you describe your passion for the game of football?
How would I describe my passion for football? I love the work it takes to become a successful player. The long hours in the gym, performing individual drills outside when everyone else is doing a "normal" workout, and the chance to battle another human being for 60 minutes to see who comes out victorious. Most of all it's the brotherhood and bond you create with your teammates. It's the closest thing to war without weapons. Sticking up for the guy next to you. It sounds cliché but you'll understand if you've played the game. Most of all, it's the mental fortitude you have to have to endure pain and struggle. Overcoming situations where you may find yourself down and out. Adapting to a bad situation. I love the challenge!

 

Ashley Dewing

Ashley Dewing
Grösse: 6`4 (194 cm)
Gewicht: 293 lbs (132 Kg)
Position: OL
Alter: 29 Jahre
1. What interested you on making your commitment to Switzerland?
The reason I would like to play in Switzerland this year, well I have never been there before. I have heard a lot of great things about the country and look forward to seeing for myself. With the season beginning and ending early it gives me the chance to play two seasons which I intend to do this year.
2. What college and or team have you previously attended or played for?
I have gotten the opportunity to play for a lot of great teams in Europe over the years. Those include: England Manchester Titans, Franken Knights in Germany, Seinajoki Crocodiles, Helsinki Roosters, Tampere Saints, and Porvoo Butches all in Finland. Also in the Canary Islands I had the chance to play for Templars.
3. What is your favorite football moment of your career?
I have so many great football moments I play the sport because I love it. The moments that have stuck out to me would be flying to Austria to play in a game with the Roosters and then in another season having the chance to play against the Roosters in the Finland Championship. But my ultimate moment was when I got the contract to play in GFL1
4. Name one individual goal and one team goal you have for the 2018 season.
Personally, my goal is to get better at everything that I do. While I am in Switzerland I want to make every moment count on and off the field by having as much fun as possible. I would like to play as hard as I can for my teammates and make sure we all play for each other as a unit and never give up and continue to battle all the way through.
5. How would you describe your passion for the game of football?
I play this game because I love it. This game has given me the chance to travel all over the world and by so having the chance to meet many great players, coaches, and fans and I look forward to meeting more along the way.

Gewicht: 205 lbs (93 Kg)
Position: QB

1. What interested you on making your commitment to Switzerland?
What interested me in coming to Switzerland was getting the chance to speak with the Head Coach, having a #1 ranked Defense, bringing in some lineman, and having American coaches.
2. What college and or team have you previously attended or played for?
I went to Kansas Wesleyan University. I have played for the Seinajoki Crocodiles in Finland, Pribram Bobcats in Czech Republic and the Albershausen Crusaders in Germany.
3. What is your favorite football moment of your career?
My favorite football moment was my junior year in college, the play is called, “The Miracle at North Newton”. It was the #1 play on Sports Center that week with Brett Favre at #2 and Carson Palmer at #3.
4. Name one individual goal and one team goal you have for the 2018 season.
My personal goal is to be at 70% completion and 5:1 TD to INT ratio. My team goal is to be the highest scoring offense and lowest penalized team in the league.
5. How would you describe your passion for the game of football?
Football has taught me many life lessons and has brought me many blessings. I’ve traveled to 18 countries and counting and the riches that have been brought into my life, money cannot buy. My belief is, have as much fun as we can but also have a high standard of excellence in the quality of work we output.

 

Play Clock
Die Bern Grizzlies möchten die Heimspiele für die Zuschauer noch attaktiver machen. Aus diesem Grund hat die Organisation zwei Play Clocks angeschafft. Die Play Clocks stehen jeweils hinter der beiden Endzonen und zeigen den Spielern, den Refs und auch den Zuschauern, u.a. die 40 Sekunden, welche der jeweiligen Offense bleiben um Auswechslungen vorzunehmen, Plays zu callen, sich aufzustellen und den Ball zu snappen, bevor eine 5 yard Strafe ausgesporchen wird. Damit erwartet die Berner American Football Fans ein noch flüssigeres und attraktiveres Spiel…und das ohne Werbeunterbrechung!
