Top offensive players to watch in Spain’s LNFA this 2024 season

Spain’s Liga Nacional de Fútbol Americano (LNFA) has the annual honor of kicking off the American football circuit on the European scene. This year, 10 teams from all over the country battle it out for a championship. Spain brings an interesting flavor to the European scene as the talent on the field is typically an interesting mix of domestic talent, American imports, a few European talents, and of course several Mexican players taking their talents across the ocean.

With that being said the 2024 season features an intriguing cast of players to keep an eye on not only for the LNFA season in Spain, but also beyond as many of these players are expected to play elsewhere in Europe or line up for one of Spain’s European League of Football teams this summer.
Today we will looks at the top offensive players to watch this 2024 LNFA Serie A season.


Sergi Gonzalo – Badalona Dracs

Dubbed the Tom Brady of Spain, Sergi has been a staple at quarterback for the Badalona Dracs for the past decade. The six-time national champion is once again behind center for the Dracs with weapons galore around him. The veteran has built a reputation as a gunslinger, however, has been clutch time and time again in his career as he hopes to hoist the trophy for the seventh time this summer.

Theo Landers – Las Rozas Black Demons:

The Canadian dual-threat passer was the engine that drove the Black Demons to the championship last season. Now he hopes to lead his team to another title as the Black Demons. Last year, Landers threw for 1,864 yards and 17 touchdowns in nine games, while also adding 768 yards and 10 touchdowns on the ground in leading the team to their first-ever Spanish championship.

Running backs

Ravon Bonner – Badalona Dracs

The 5’11 225-pound tailback looked great in his international debut scoring two touchdowns in the Drac’s first game. Bonner has top-flight NCAA experience rushing for nearly 1,000 career yards playing in the Big Ten Conference as a member of Illinois’s football team, before spending one season a Temple in 2021. He also has experience playing Arena football for the Iowa Barnstormers. Expect Bonner to be the league’s top ballcarrier this season.

Daniel Romero – Las Rozas Black Demons

Romero is a veteran of the LNFA suiting up several seasons for the Las Rozas Black Demons. Romero was MVP of the the Spanish Cup (No-import tournament) in December. Romero has also recently signed with the Madrid Bravos of the ELF. 

Wide Receiver

Alpha Jalloh – Badalona Dracs

Is he a receiver? Is he a defensive back? A running back?  The answer is yes.

Jalloh brings arguably the best football resume to Spain this year earning all-star honors in Germany, Sweden, Finland, and Romania during his long and accomplished career in Europe. Jalloh can truly impact the game in all three phases and will certainly be a key for the Dracs and their pursuit of a championship this season.

Noah Bomba – Camioneros de Coslada

The German talent is a tall receiver with strong hands, that will be relied on heavily in a young Camioneros offense. Bomba comes to Spain after three seasons in the European League of Football with the Leipzig Kings, Munich Ravens, and Frankfurt Galaxy winning the first-ever ELF Championship. Bomba has 28 career catches for 361 yards in three seasons in the ELF.

Alejandro Herrero – Gijon Mariners

Herrero is a homegrown stud for the Mariners playing all over the field for them. Whether it’s running back, receiver, linebacker, or defensive back, Herrero is up to the task. The former Barcelona Dragons player also has experience playing in Scotland for  Stirling University and brings much-needed awareness, toughness, and athleticism to the Mariners team.

Offensive Linemen

Lucas Maier – Las Rozas Black Demons:

The German offensive tackle comes to Madrid with a wealth of experience and knowledge. Maier has experience at Europe’s highest level playing tackle for the Schwabisch Hall Unicorns, Allgäu Comets, and most recently with the Stuttgart Surge. Look for his quick feet and physical play to help the Black Demons make a deep playoff run as they hope to repeat as champions.

Gabriel Rodriguez – Zaragoza Hurricanes

The 6’6 Spanish talent was invited to the NFL IPP combine two years ago due to his impressive size and play in the ELF. Rodriguez returns to his hometown Hurricanes after playing for the Barcelona Dragons and Helvetic Guards in the ELF for the past two seasons.
