ELF: Munich Ravens sign former Winston Salem State DB Joshua Flowers

The Munich Ravens have added another American import to their roster, with the announcement of the signing of defensive back Joshua Flowers.

A native of Willingboro, New Jersey, Flowers began his collegiate career at LIU Post, a now-defunct program in New York that played at the Division II level during Flowers’ time there.  He made an immediate impact in his freshman season of 2016, as he recorded 62 total tackles and 6 interceptions in 13 games.  He also was on the track and field team for the Pioneers, specializing in the 400-meter dash

Flowers transferred to Winston Salem State University (NCAA Div. II) in North Carolina before the 2018 season.  After sitting out that season due to NCAA rules, he made his debut for the Rams in 2019.  In 10 games, he recorded 32 total tackles along with 4 interceptions and 6 pass breakups.  The 2020 season was canceled due to COVID-19, but Flowers came back in 2021 with 30 tackles, 1 interception, and 4 pass breakups in 8 games.

After a strong showing in the HBCU Legacy Bowl, Flowers was signed by the Jacksonville Jaguars in May of 2022, but did not stick around.  He was later signed by the BC Lions of the Canadian Football League in December of 2022, but was released in June of 2023.  This upcoming season will be his first outside of North America.

At 6’3”, 193 pounds and with a background in track and field, Flowers is a tall, speedy cornerback who can be disruptive in the secondary.  The Ravens are hoping he can make a lot of big plays in the secondary in 2024.
