Playing American Football in Finland...

Helsinki Roosters has three excellent players from USA for the season 2012:

-Quarterback #8 Robert Johnson from Texas Tech played first time in 2008 in Helsinki Roosters.
-Defensive end #2 Jaren Wilcox arrived in Helsinki in the beginning of April 2012.
-Linebacker #14 Antonio Harris from North Carolina Wesleyan College.

Due to unfortunate injury of Antonio Harris, Roosters recruited free safety/outside linebacker #30 Stephen Payton from Brown University for the rest of the season.

Defensive back, #6 Matias Sarvela who is studying and playing in Louisiana College had a very interesting discussion with Robert, Stephen and Jaren about playing American Football in Finland. But they also talked about what Finnish and European players should consider about playing ball in USA.

Matias also played with Roosters in 2012 but is now going back to Louisiana College for his senior season.
