The Tychy Falcons, 2018 semifinalists, will open Poland’s Liga Futbolu Amerykańskiego season at home, hosting the Warsaw Mets on Saturday, March 23.
The Falcons reached the LFA semifinal round in 2018 only to fall to the Wroclaw Panthers 28-7.
Tychy head coach Michal Kołek has brought in quarterback Keith “Keke” Ray at quarterback, LaParish Lewis as defensive back and running back Jacek Wróblewski. Ray is no stranger to the Falcons having played for Tychy in 2016. Since then he has won a Dutch championship with the Amsterdam Crusaders and played for the Minsk Zubrs from Belarus. Lewis also was a teammate of Ray’s on both the Falcons and Zubrs.
The Mets under new head coach Matheus Dias are the latest member of the LFA but they are not without top caliber players. They have signed quarterback Terrance Owens, who led the Gdynia Seahawks to the Polish final in 2016. He is joined by Mateusz Szczęk who helped the Bialystok Lowlanders win the 2018 title.
