Badalona Dracs sign FAF Division III All American RB Hunter Belzo

The reigning Spanish champions, the Badalona Dracs, have signed running back Hunter Belzo from the University of Springfield (NCAA Div. III).

The versatile 5’9″, 190 pound, 24-year-old Belzo, a native of Meridien, Connecticut, spent four years (2016-20) at Springfield amassing 2,332 yards rushing, scoring 27 touchdowns while lining up as a running back, wide receiver and at times quarterback. He helped Springfield win the NEWMAC conference title and was named to the All-Conference team in three out of his four years. He was also named to the Noontime Sports All-New England team and was an FAF All American.

Belzo spent the 2020 season playing in the Arena Football League with the Idaho Horsemen where he scored 13 touchdowns in seven games.

Needless to say, Belzo is pleased to be joining the Dracs:

” It is an honor to sign with Badalona, since it is a team that year after year is ranked among the best European teams. I have every intention of contributing my versatility to help the team in any position where I can be most useful. Offensively I can play as a running back, wide receiver and even quarterback. I can also help both on defense and on special teams. My only aim every time I touch the ball is to find a way to score a touchdown.”

The Badalona Dracs won their fifth straight Spanish title in 2021 and 11th overall.
