Another Argentinian American Football Export – Kicker Miguel Angel Caserma

Argentinian Miguel Angel Caserma has turned his talents on the rugby pitch into a valuable skill on the American football field. The former professional rugby player has found a life in Italy as a kicker for the Modena Vipers in the Italian Football League.

Caserma, who played professional rugby in Argentina with Ateneo Don Bosco Club, Los Tilos de La Plata (URBA), but is a dentist by trade as well, found his way to Italy to practice his trade as a dentist. However, his rugby skills, especially kicking the ball did not go unnoticed.

His power – he apparently kicked a 71 yard field goal in practice – caught the attention of the Modena Vipers, a second division American football team in Italy. The club recruited him and Caserma started training kids, and like Argentinian NFL player Martín Gramática, he became a kicking specialist.

Since 2015, Caserma has been kicking for the Vipers and although he still has not signed for the 2017 season, he is enjoying his American football life in Italy.
