ELF: Rhein Fire sign QB Jadrian Clark for the remainder of the 2022 season

The Rhein Fire of the European League of Football have announced a change at quarterback with the signing of Jadrian Clark for the rest of the 2022 season.

Clark replaces Matt Adam who has led the Fire to a 4-2 record after throwing for 990 yards and 10 touchdowns.

The 27-year-old, 6’3″, 225-pound Clark, who was born in Indianapolis, Indiana and raised Lakeland, Florida, moves over from the Lubeck Cougars in the GFL2 where he has guided the team to a 4-2 record so far in 2022 after throwing for 1,150 yards and 13 touchdowns. In 2021, Clark led the Hamburg Sea Devils to the ELF championship game where they lost 32-30 to the Frankfurt Galaxy. In that game, Clark completed 25-of-39 passes for 351 yards and a touchdown, while rushing for two more. The year before, he guided the Dacia Vienna Vikings to the Austrian title in a pandemic delayed and shortened playoff series against the Graz Giants in 2020. In the three wins (31-19, 45-13 and 46-29), he threw for 932 yards and 13 touchdowns against zero interceptions. And in doing so he completed passes to 12 different receivers.

For his outstanding performance, he was named as the quarterback for the AFI All Pandemic Team.

In 2019, he led the Schwäbisch Hall Unicorns, to the German Bowl, throwing for 4,009 yards and a league-best 51 touchdowns.  He spent the 2018 season with the Braunschweig New Yorker Lions, taking them to the GFL semifinals, throwing for 3,627 yards and 45 touchdowns. He first played in Germany the year before when he helped the Kirchdorf Wildcats win the GFL2 title, 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 for the Weber State Wildcats (NCAA Div. I, FCS), 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.
