Braunschweig New Yorker Lions sign Weber State QB Jadrian Clark

The 11-time German Bowl winning Braunschweig New Yorker Lions have signed Weber State Wildcats (NCAA Div. I, FCS) quarterback Jadrian Clark.

With the retirement of multi-title winning quarterback Casey Therriault, Lions head coach Troy Tomlin has found an excellent replacement.

The 23 year old Clark, 6’3″, 225 lb from Lakeland, Florida guided the Kirchdorf Wildcats to the GFL 2  title in 2017, and then led them  to promotion to the German Football League. He threw for 3,206 yards and 46 touchdowns in 12 regular season games with a 63.3% completion average.

A three year starter at Weber State, Clark finished his career as one of the top quarterbacks in the school’s history. He ended his career third in Weber State history in career total offense with 6,568 yards. He also finished his career ranked fourth in career passing with 5,810 yards. He threw for 40 career touchdowns and rushed for 758 yards and five more touchdowns. The 758 rushing yards is the second most by a WSU quarterback. In 2016, he led the Wildcats  into the FCS playoffs.

The New Yorker Lions finished the 2017 season as the number two team in Europe after losing in a heart breaker to the Schwabisch Hall Unicorns in the 2017 German Bowl. 

Jadrian Clark is pumped about the opportunity:

I am super excited to be playing for the Lions. Coach Tomlin made me an offer and I simply could not turn him down. It really feels amazing.”

According to Jadrian, the Lions coaches reached out to him late last year.

When asked what he thinks he brings to the Lions, Clark replied:

“I think that I’m a leader and have a strong work ethic. The Lions are already a tremendous organization and I’m just looking to come in and contribute by doing my job the best I can.”
