Frankfurt Galaxy sign University of Nevada DB Berdale Robins

The Frankfurt Galaxy have signed defensive back Berdale Robins for the 2023 season in the European League of Football.

Originally from Los Angeles, California, Robins played college football at the NCAA Division I level at the University of Nevada.  Though undersized at 5’9”, 170 pounds, and lightly recruited out of high school, Robins developed into an impact player for the Wolf Pack.  In five seasons at Nevada, he appeared in 51 games, and registered 90 tackles, 27 passes defended, and seven interceptions.  His most prolific season was his last one at Nevada in 2021, in which he recorded 29 tackles, and three interceptions.  Highlights of that season included an 86-yard interception returned for a touchdown against San Jose State and an interception in his last collegiate game against Western Michigan in the Quick Lane Bowl.

This season will be Robins’ first playing in Europe.  Interestingly, Robins is the second former Nevada defensive back to join the ELF this month, as fellow Wolf Pack alum Elijah Moody recently signed with the Fehérvár Enthroners.  Robins joins a Frankfurt secondary that ranked sixth last season in terms of passing yards allowed having surrendered 2,399 yards in the air and fifth in passing touchdowns given up with 34.

Galaxy head coach Thomas Kösling:

“Berdale has proven himself at the highest college level and will be a great addition to our team.  He is a different type of player than the previous players and can also be used flexibly as a nickel.”
