Potsdam Royals QB Jaylon Henderson has his team on a roll heading into GFL Bowl

After finishing off their German Football League season with an 11-1 record and ripping off nine straight wins, the Potsdam Royals are sitting the driver seat as they have a chance to win this year’s GFL Bowl against the defending champion Schwäbisch Hall Unicorns

Leading them into the game against the Unicorns is quarterback Jaylon Henderson. This year’s championship game will be a rematch of last year’s championship final, as the Unicorns walked away with a 44-27 victory. While Henderson was not on that Potsdam team, there’s no question that he will want nothing more than to help avenge that loss for his teammates.

The first game Henderson played as a Royal was in fact against Schwäbisch Hall in week one of the GFL season. In this game, Henderson put on a display, throwing for 333 yards and five touchdowns as Potsdam won on the road 44-30.

Henderson has statistically been one of the best quarterbacks in the GFL this season. The Royals signal caller ranks first in the GFL in completion percentage (74.0%) and second in both passing yards (3,934) and touchdowns (49). Henderson can also move the ball using his legs with 641 yards and 12 touchdowns on the ground.

After he finished his college football career with the Boise State Broncos (NCAA Division I), the 6’1”, 210-pound dual threat quarterback had short stints professionally with the Vegas Knight Hawks of the Indoor Football League and for the Panasonic Impulse in the X-League Super in Japan.

Henderson has been one the most electric players at the quarterback position all season so there is no doubt that with everything on the line in this championship game, he will aim even higher.

Henderson and the Royals will travel to Essen to take on Schwäbisch Hall in the 2023 GFL Bowl on Saturday, October 14th.
