Prague Lions Sign WR Travier Fields-Jackson

The Prague Lions have signed their first American offensive player for the 2024 European League of Football season, as the team announced the acquisition of receiver Travier Fields-Jackson.

The 6’3″, 200 pound native of Red Oaks, Texas last played for the Topeka Tropics of the National Arena League, where he spent the 2023 season.  This will be his first season in Europe.  He started his collegiate career at Trinity Valley Community College in Athens, Texas, before transferring to Missouri Southern State College at the Division II level.  In his lone season there in 2019, he caught 13 passes for 254 yards and a touchdown.

The Lions are hoping Fields-Jackson will provide some star power on offense for a team that desperately needs it.  He is a relatively unproven player who did not rack up a ton of stats in college compared to most other American imports, but Prague must see potential in him.  They still need to find a quarterback who can throw him the ball, but we can expect that announcement to be made in the coming weeks.

In their first season in the ELF last year, the Lions were the worst team in the league, finishing with a record of 1-11.  Their lone “victory” was a game that was forfeited by the now defunct Leipzig Kings.  Therefore, they are still looking to win their first game on an ELF field in 2024, and they expect Fields-Jackson to help out with that mission.
