Finland: Wasa Royals Sign Veteran QB Timonthy Morovick

The Wasa Royals of the Finnish Maple League have signed veteran quarterback Timothy Morovick.

The seasoned dual-threat passer is no stranger to Scandinavian football having spent several seasons playing in Sweden and Denmark. Now he is set to debut in the Finnish Maple League for the recently promoted Wasa Royals this summer.

The 6’2″, 215 pound, 29-year-old Morovick spent the last year playing for the Carlstad Crusaders in Sweden and the Bucharest Rebels in Romania, helping the Rebels claim the title this past fall.

Prior to quarterbacking Carlstad in 2021, the Hemet, California native spent the shortened and late 2020 Swedish season playing for Carlstad’s rival, the Stockholm Mean Machines, leading them to the championship final against Carlstad. During the team’s regular season, Morovick threw for 771 yards in five games and nine touchdowns while rushing for 225 yards and four touchdowns.

Before that, he had spent a tumultuous couple of years. He had originally signed to play for the Helsinki Wolverines in Finland, but the COVID-19 pandemic prevented him from traveling to Finland at the time. After signing with the Aarhus Tigers in Denmark in 2019, he suffered a season-ending injury. He had played in Poland with the Wroclaw Panthers in 2017 and 2018 helping them win their second straight Polish title in 2017 while earning the league’s most valuable player award.  He left the team late in the 2018 season in a contract dispute. He spent the 2016 campaign with the Albershausen Crusaders in Germany. Morovick played for Ottawa University (Kansas, NAIA) where he was picked to play in the Senior Bowl.
