AFI’s All-Europe Team: Offensive Line – Joachim Christensen, Frankfurt Galaxy

While offensive line play was hotly debated among AFI‘s panel, Danish lineman Joachim Christensen was simply one player that played too well to be left off.

The 6‘5,” 295 pound native of Broendby, Denmark was the center for the Frankfurt Galaxy last season helping orchestrate the league’s top offense en route to a near-perfect championship season. Christensen commanded his offensive line helping set protections and coordinate double teams. The savvy veteran earned the respect of coaches and fans as he was named an ELF All-Star at the center position.

Before playing in the ELF‘s inaugural season, Christensen suited up at left guard for Frankfurt Universe in the German Football League in 2019. The proud Dane is also a regular on the Danish National Team where his skill and experience stand out among some of the country’s best talent. The skilled lineman has been playing for Denmark’s national team since 2011.

Christensen’s worldwide football journey began as a member of the Avedøre Monarchs in his home country. From there, Christensen took his talents stateside playing for Algonac High School in Michigan and then NCAA Div.1 FCS Wagner University in New York. As a member of the Seahawks, Christensen played for three seasons winning one conference championship. Following his time in college football, Christensen joined the Danish powerhouse Copenhagen Towers winning the 2017 and 2018 Mermaid Bowl championships.
