AFI’s All-Europe Team: Wide Receiver- Jéan Constant, Barcelona Dragons

They say good things come in small packages. No player personified that more than Barcelona Dragons receiver Jéan Constant.

In the European League of Football’s inaugural season, the high production value, marketing, and level of play drew the eyes of fans from all over the continent. One of the league’s brightest stars came in undersized speedster Jéan Constant. The former All-American’s burst, vision, and reliable hands made him a versatile weapon that the Dragons leaned on throughout the season.

Standing at just 5’9″, and 180-pounds, Constant led the ELF with 75 catches for 1,074 yards and eight touchdowns while playing for the Barcelona Dragons. In addition to being the league’s top pass catcher, Constant’s speed played a huge factor on special teams as the former NCAA All-American return man added 1,165 return yards. Overall, speed demon racked up nine scores, 2,246 all-purpose yards, and a Week 6 MVP award for his 242 yard and three-touchdown performance against the Berlin Thunder.

The 25-year-old native of Delray Beach, Florida spent the first three years of his collegiate career (2016-18) at Bryant (NCAA Div. I, FCS) where he was named to multiple All American teams after the 2017 and 2018 seasons including the Walter Camp, Phil Steele and STATS All American Teams. He finished his career with the Bulldogs with 1,336 career receiving yards on 107 receptions while recording 1,694 return yards, reaching the end zone 23 times. Playing for the Stony Brook Seawolves (NCAA Div. I FCS) in 2019, he appeared in nine games with seven starts, amassing 919 all-purpose yards. He had 28 catches for 439 yards and five touchdowns while returning 18 kickoffs ad 18 kick returns for 338 yards and 13 punts for 146 yards. He had a touchdown catch in five straight games.

Currently, Constant is back in the US training as part of the seven-on-seven “The Hub” camp with a long list of former division one players and NFL hopefuls. Constant used the off season to move from the Barcelona Dragons signing instead with ELF foe the Hamburg Sea Devils.

Constant on his decision to sign with Hamburg:

“Ultimately, it came down to being part of a winning program, I couldn’t pass up on that opportunity”, Constant added “I expect us to be back in the running for a championship but with different results next season.”
