“Terrell is a born hunter. His versatility allows him to pressure the quarterback while also bringing down running backs. He will give our defense even more aggressiveness. He is an excellent signing for the Dracs and will help us achieve our goals.”

Badalona defensive coordinator Xus Fernandez:

“Terrell will allow us to put more pressure on rival quarterbacks. He is aggressive in the pass rush forcing opposing offensive linemen to have to double team him giving the rest of the defensive front seven more freedom.”
