AFI All-Europe OL Nick Wiens signs with Düsseldorf Rhein Fire

The Düsseldorf Rhein Fire, one of the newest members of the European League of Football, have announced the signing of AFI All Europe Team offensive guard Nick Wiens.

The 6’2″, 280-pound native of Dortmund, Germany was just voted to the AFI All-Europe Team after a superb season as a member of the Cologne Centurions. Playing left guard, the 24-year-old Wiens was an impact player for the Centurions, helping open up huge holes for ELF MVP, running back Madre London, to burst through. With Wiens out front, London rushed for more than 2,000 yards behind one of the best run-blocking offensive lines in all of Europe. As a group, the Centurions averaged 6.43 yards per carry and just 1.5 sacks allowed per game, with Wiens being named an ELF All-Star in the process.

According to London, Wiens is a special player:

“His ability to get in and out of his stance is unbelievable,” Madre London raved to AFI. “He’s not the biggest, but he’s by far the toughest and strongest of them all when we’re on the field. His IQ for the game is what make him one of the best in all of Europe.”

Wiens started his career with his hometown Dortmund Giants before moving to the Cologne Crocodiles in the German Football League where he played for two seasons. He spent the 2018/19 season studying and playing at the New Mexico Military Institute (NJCAA).
