Germany: Saarland Hurricanes sign former Arkansas Razorback QB Jack Lindsey

The Saarland Hurricanes of the German Football League have signed their quarterback for the 2022 season agreeing to terms with former SEC gunslinger Jack Lindsey.

The division one talent now takes the reins of a Saarland offense looking to make some noise this year coming off of a historic 2021 season. Hurricanes head coach Christos Lambropoulos on his new quarterback:

“I ended up making the decision to go with Jack because he checked a lot of boxes both on and off the field. His skill set fits what we want to accomplish on offense but more importantly he struck me as a good person. We also seemed to have a good rep-or right from the start. I always feel that the relationship between the OC and QB is a defining factor in how the Qb and by extension the offense performs and it’s not something you can manufacture, it has to come naturally.”

The 6’2 205-pound Fayetteville, Arkansas native spent the first four years of his NCAA career in his hometown playing for the Arkansas Razorbacks (NCAA DI). Initially, Lindsey worked his way onto the field as a holder for the field goal unit before becoming the team’s second option at quarterback. In 2019, Lindsey started the regular-season finale for the Razorbacks throwing for two touchdowns and rushing for 50 yards. After five seasons as a Razorback, the hometown kid left the program throwing for career totals of 126 yards three touchdowns and a QB rating of 111. He also added 100 yards on the ground.

Lindsey then spent his final season of college football at nearby Arkansas Tech (NCAA DII). As a member of the Wonder Boys (yes that’s the real mascot name) Lindley finally got the starting nod. Taking full advantage of the opportunity, Lindsey threw for 2,050 yards and 15 scores while adding 187 yards and two touchdowns on the ground.

The former Razorback replaces Josh Goldin who was one of the league’s best quarterbacks last year in Saarland throwing for 3,385 yards, 37 touchdowns, and only six interceptions. Expect 2021’s Coach of the Year Christos Lambropoulos and Lindsey to get the Hurricane’s offense to be one of the league’s best once again.
