Germany: Ravensburg Razorbacks sign Mele J. Mosqueda

German Football League newcomers, the Ravensburg Razorbacks, have announced the signing of Mele J. Mosqueda as their new offensive coordinator.

Mosqueda comes to the Razorbacks after spending part of the 2020 season as offensive coordinator and associate head coach for the Marseille Blue Stars, who have had their season shortened due to the coronavirus. In their four games, the Blue Stars racked up 179 points and 1,618 yards of offense, second best in France.

Mosqueda spent the 2019 season as head coach of the Gdynia Seahawks in Poland’s Liga Futbolu Amerykańskiego, guiding the Seahawks to the LFA semifinals where they were eliminated by the Wroclaw Panthers. Under him, the Seahawks had the second most prolific offense in Poland averaging almost 40 points a game.

Returning to the Comets in 2016, Mosqueda, he helped the team’s defense become the fifth best in the country.

In 2017, Mosqueda joined the staff of the Schwäbisch Hall Unicorns working as wide receivers coach, special teams assistant and strength and conditioning coach.  It was a monumental year as the team went on to win the German title that season, their first since 2012.
