ELF: Paris Football Team announces first two signings

The Paris Football Team has announced the first two signings of its fledgling year in the European League of Football with the addition of French national team members, defensive tackle Mamadou Sy and offensive tackle Mamoudou Doumbouya. 

Sy and Doumbouya are French giants who are imposing forces on their respective sides of the ball.  The two are longtime friends and have made history by simultaneously becoming the first players of the ELF franchise in the City of Lights.  

The 6’3″, 287 pound Sy has spent the past two seasons with the Frankfurt Galaxy in the ELF.  In 2021, he won the league’s inaugural championship game with the Galaxy, following a regular season in which he played three games and registered three tackles.  This past season, he took on an expanded role, playing in all 12 games, recording 18 tackles and adding a sack.  His big body plugs gaps at the line, allowing his teammates to come in behind him and make stops.

On the offensive line, the 6’4″ Doumbouya weighs in at 300 pounds and can serve as an anchor for any team in the trenches.  He has previously played with the Berlin Rebels of the German Football League and has spent time in the Spanish (Las Rozas Black Demons) and French (La Courneuve Flash) leagues as well.  It is projected that he can serve as the offensive tackle who can be responsible for the blind side of the still yet-to-be-determined quarterback.  

The Paris team has added these players ahead of their first combine, which will take place at La Defense Arena in Nanterre on November 20th.
