ELF: Hamburg Sea Devils sign NFL IPP Combine invite French tight end Brandon Camara

The Hamburg Sea Devils of the European League of Football continue to make noise this off-season, this time with the addition of French athlete Brandon Camara. The newest Sea Devil commented on why he chose Hamburg:

“I decided to join the Hamburg Sea Devils because I trust the great management and coaching staff. I want to be the best teammate and player for my team and use the stage to recommend myself to the NFL.”

The 6’4,” 230 pound native of Nice, France was recently invited to the October NFL International Combine in London.  The 22-year-old tight end ran a 4.79 (unofficial) 40-yard dash at the event, along with showing off his massive wingspan and soft hands.

The French NFL prospect is a product of the Dauphins de Nice program playing for one of the best youth programs in the south of France. Camara most recently played for the Marseille Blue Stars in the French Elite in 2020 prior to the season’s covid-19 related cancellation. In 2019, Camara visited Penn State University as a potential NCAA prospect.

Camara’s new offensive coordinator in Hamburg Kirk Heidelberg is excited to work with the young talent:

“Brandon is very athletic, has good hand-eye coordination and runs excellent routes for a tight end. I am very happy that we were able to get him for our team. He will help us add even more speed to our offense.”

Camara has big shoes to fill replacing AllEurope tight end Adria Botella Moreno who left Hamburg for Vienna. The young Frenchmen joins a flurry of signings in Hamburg as the Sea Devils have also added former Houston Baptist University (NCAA D1 FCS) lineman Francis Bongwalanga. Expect the Sea Devils‘ new tight end to be catching passes from German quarterback Salieu Ceesay and blocking for British talent Glen Toonga.
