The Berlin Rebels, German Football League quarterfinalists in 2017,  have signed Dutch running back Sean Richard for the 2018 season.

A product of the Amsterdam Panthers, Richard started playing football at the age of 16 and played on the Panthers U19 squad until 2014. He moved over to the Amsterdam Crusaders in 2015 helping them to win the Dutch title in 2015 and 2016.

Berlin Rebels head coach Kim Kuci:

“Sean Richard completes our backfield this season. He is a very fast and agile player and can also be used excellently on our special teams. Due to his Dutch origin, he saves us another A spot, which we could use elsewhere! “

Sean Richard:

“I believe that the goal of the Rebels and the ways to reach that goal are in line with those I set for myself: to be the best, the one who outs in the extra training hours that keep taking you small steps forward.”
