Jadrian Clark announced as QB for the Hamburg Sea Devils

The Hamburg Sea Devils of the European League of Football have announced that Jadrian Clark will be their quarterback for the 2021 season.

The 26 year old, 6’3″, 225 pound Clark, who was born in Indianapolis, Indiana and raised Lakeland, Florida, guided the Dacia Vienna Vikings to the Austrian title in a pandemic delayed and shortened playoff series against the Graz Giants in 2020. In the three wins (31-19, 45-13 and 46-29), he threw for 932 yards and 13 touchdowns  against zero interceptions. And in doing so he completed passes to 12 different receivers.

For his outstanding performance, he was named as the quarterback for the AFI All Pandemic Team.

In 2019, he led the Schwäbisch Hall Unicorns, to the German Bowl, throwing for 4,009 yards and a league-best 51 touchdowns.  He spent the 2018 season with the Braunschweig New Yorker Lions, taking them to the GFL semifinals, throwing for 3,627 yards and 45 touchdowns. He first played in Germany the year before when he helped the Kirchdorf Wildcats win the GFL2  title, and then led them  to promotion to the German Football League. He threw for 3,206 yards and 46 touchdowns in 12 regular season games with a 63.3% completion average.

A three year starter for the Weber State Wildcats (NCAA Div. I, FCS), Clark finished his career as one of the top quarterbacks in the school’s history. He ended his career third in Weber State history in career total offense with 6,568 yards. He also finished his career ranked fourth in career passing with 5,810 yards. He threw for 40 career touchdowns and rushed for 758 yards and five more touchdowns. The 758 rushing yards is the second most by a WSU quarterback. In 2016, he led the Wildcats  into the FCS playoffs.

Clark is definitely looking forward to the opportunity:

“To be a part of this league is a dream come true. I fully believe that the ELF is going to transform American football in Europe. A great plan for marketing, competitive balance and financial management were some of the key selling points to me on the league. The Sea Devils staff is top notch and the roster is loaded with talent. I’m excited to build something special in Hamburg.”
