Germany’s Allgäu Comets add 3rd QB; sign Jordan Paul

The Allgäu Comets in the German Football League have added another quarterback with the signing of Jordan Paul.

The 25-year-old joins Tyler Johnson and Calvin Stitt in a quarterback rotation that is certain to give opposing defenses problems in 2018.

The 6’3″, 215 lb Paul, a native of Brooklyn, New York,  finished his college football career at the University of Charleston (NCAA Div. II) after transferring from Gardner Webb (NCAA Div. I). He served both as quarterback and wide receiver.

Paul spent part of the 2017 season as quarterback for the Torino Giaguari in Italy.

The Comets finished the 2017 season out of the German Football League playoffs for the first time in three years with a 6-8 record.

Comets head coach Stan Bedwell:

“The quarterback position is perhaps the most important role in any offense, but in our system it’s even bigger. With a 14-game season, you must have a contingency plan incase things go wrong. Jordan is an experienced quarterback that has played at a high level. He has a big body, throws well, and is able to make plays with his feet if the pocket breaks down. He’s a guy that can step in and keep the offense rolling should Tyler have to come out. We are very excited about all three guys we have brought in, they are all talented leaders that with a team first mentality. We are in good shape there.”
