Ep. 5: AAF Players – Speculating who could join the league

In this episode, we have two more outstanding athletes looking for an opportunity with the AAF. We cover the latest news and speculate whether some NFL free agents could see themselves as AAF players.

Player Interviews

Dewayne Beckford

One word to describe this guy: unforgiving. On the field, he is violent and a scary dude that’s coming to put a hit on you. Off the field, he enjoys yoga, meditating, and spending time with his family. He is the embodiment of the balance between physical and mental fitness.

Eli Walker

Eli doesn’t have much experience¬†playing football but his drive and passion could make up for that. As a raw athlete, he is a triathlete and placed 6th in his age group at the Triathalon World Champ Qualifiers. He’ll be at the Atlanta combine so we’ll get to see that athleticism on display.

Recent article from ESPN highlights aspects of the AAF that point towards its success. All major sports have compliment leagues that can develop young talent. The AAF could be that for the NFL. NFL teams are working closely with AAF personnel.

NFL is already poaching our talent. C Oni Omoile has been signed by the Steelers. This is a major bummer since OL talent is difficult to come by.

Check out the listings for job opening with the AAF. Plenty of opening with ticket sales and service jobs for all cities. Director of Office Operations in Orlando. Social Media Coordinator in San Fran. Many more are available. In Memphis, they are looking for an Account Executive, aka sales, Senior Account Executive, and a VP of Sponsorships.
