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.
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 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.
