This Sunday, October 18, the Warsaw Mets visit the Silesia Rebels in final regular season game of the year in Poland’s Liga Futbolu Amerykańskiego.
This matchup includes two very exciting quarterbacks to watch. Both teams have shown the potential to play great football this season and are excited to be competing against each other this week, even though both teams have been eliminated from the playoffs. Both teams are winless and have a chance to get a victory this week before the season ends!
The Warsaw Mets go into this game without a win. They are a team that has been very competitive at times but just have not done enough to leave the field victorious. The young team has improved a lot since the beginning of the season. Young players have gained experience and confidence in a shortened season during a crazy year. One bright spot for the Mets is quarterback TJ Richardson. Richardson is a phenomenal athlete who has played many different positions in the past. This season he has been suiting up at quarterback for the Mets. From the quarterback position Richardson has shown his athleticism running for first downs, extending plays, and finding his receivers downfield. In his new role Richardson has also grown as a leader for this team as well. This week is a great opportunity for the Mets to get their first win of the season.
Richardson on the Matchup:
“The team is focused and hungry to win. Like every week we strive to execute to perfection but we need to do a great job taking advantage of opportunities.”
For the Silesia Rebels, they lost a heartbreaker last week to the Bydgoszcz Archers last week 29-28. The Rebels offense was smothered by an athletic Archers defense that sacked Rebels quarterback Ashley Bailey multiple times. Bailey was still able to make some big plays in this game. Bailey, like Richardson, is also an athletic quarterback who has been very exciting to watch this year. Bailey has been able to find his favorite receivers Devion Young and Jan Korkuc all season. Defensively, the Rebels matchup up well against a struggling Warsaw offense. Rebels quarterback Ashley Bailey on the matchup with Warsaw:
“We won’t take them lightly at all, we are both 0-4 so on paper there is no difference. We have a good opportunity to end the season on a good note.”
This is the last week of football for both of these teams. Look for the coaches and players to play loose and try some trick plays. Both of these teams are playing for pride and the chance to get a win before the end of the season. Look for dynamic quarterbacks TJ Richardson and Ashley Bailey to make some exciting plays in this game!
