Poland’s Wroclaw Panthers sign AFI All-Pandemic Team RB Lamar Carswell

The Wroclaw Panthers who will play in the European League of Football, ELF, in 2021, have signed running back Lamar Carswell.

Carswell was a key factor in the Kuopio Steelers championship season in Finland’s Maple League in 2020.

For his performance in 2020, Carswell was named to the American Football International All-Pandemic Team.

The 5’9″ and 180 pound Toledo, Ohio native tore up the Maple League averaging 9.3 yards a carry on 58 carries while rushing for 539 yards and 10 touchdowns in the regular season. Carswell then outdid himself in the Finnish playoffs ripping off 178 yards and three touchdowns in the semifinals adding another 85 yards and one touchdown in the Maple Bowl victory over the Helsinki Wolverines. His pass catching ability also helped. He caught nine passes for 109 yards and two scores during the regular season and then added another 106 yards and two touchdowns in the post season. In the semifinal alone, he accounted for 228 yards of offense and four of his team’s five touchdowns.

In his four years at Trine University (NCAA Div. III) he rushed for 5,369 yards and a whopping 72 touchdowns including a senior season that saw him carry the ball 276 times for 2,294 yards and 32 touchdowns.
