Italian DE Lorenzo Dalle Piagge invited to CFL Combine in Toronto

Defensive lineman Lorenzo Dalle Piage has been extended an invitation to showcase his skills for Canadian Football League (CFL) general managers, coaches and scouts in Toronto for the CFL Combine from March 26-28. Dalle Piagge was one of 26 players who participated in the CFL Global Combine in Italy conducted in association with the Federazione Italiana di American Football (FIDAF).

“FIDAF personnel conducted a very well executed combine. Our thanks to all the athletes who participated in the first-ever combine in Italy,” said CFL Senior Director, Football Operations, Ryan Janzen. “It has been incredible to see the worldwide passion for gridiron football as we near the halfway point of the Global Combine tour.”

The Florence event marked the fourth global combine this year with six remaining.


FIDAF president Leoluca Orlando:

“This is a great opportunity for Italian players and a fundamental moment of growth for our federation. Florence saw us take another big step forward in our important partnership with the CFL. The FIDAF-CFL Combine offers the chance to showcase our players’ talents in the hope that some of them can, one day, step out onto the prominent stage of the Canadian championship while also enabling the many Italians living in Canada to experience the joy and pride of cheering on their fellow countrymen.”

The CFL will announce the full list of global players invited to Toronto following the completion of the 10 Global Combines prior to the 2020 CFL Global Draft on April 16.

Today's CFL is more than just our great game of football. It's fans sharing their excitement for what they see on the field, and what they experience off it. Stay up to date on all the non-stop action at
