Europe’s #1 team, Braunschweig New Yorker Lions sign Swedish national team RB Kasper Wedberg

Europe’s top team and German Bowl champions, the Braunschweig New Yorker Lions have bolstered their already potent running game with the signing of Team Sweden running back Kasper Wedberg.

During the regular season, he had 116 carries for 675 yards and 10 touchdowns, averaging almost six yards a carry. He was a key to the Black Panthers running game, which led the French league. In 2018,  he played for the Bron-Villeurbanne Falcons in the French top division.

The New Yorker Lions regained their German crown in 2019 posting a 17-0 record and defeating the Schwabisch Hall Unicorns in the German Bowl, 10-7.

The 5’8″. 195 lb 24-year-old native of Falun, Sweden, Wedberg helped the Örebro Black Knights reach the 2017 Swedish final rushing for 621 yards and 11 touchdowns in his third year in Sweden’s Super Series. He was named Sweden’s top running back and played for the Swedish national team in games against Finland and Great Britain.
