More exciting news coming from the Merseyside Nighthawks off-season. James Matthews, Outside linebacker for the Nighthawks Junior U19 team has accepted a place at Bristol Academy of Sport to join the PRIDE for their American football programme.
The 6th form college specialises in a number of sports, including American football, which allows the opportunity for young talents to find a way into the NCAA college system. Possibly most well known former student is Alex Jenkins, currently on the practice squad for the New Orleans Saints in the NFL.
Everyone at the Merseyside Nighthawks is excited to see James develop and look forward to observing his playing career and hope to have him back with us soon.
