American football: The 28-year-old, most recently with the German second-placed Schwäbisch Hall Unicorns, wants to strengthen the Fellbach Warriors in the regional league like Ruben Pain or Abdelghafour Sedik.

The football season in the United States culminates in the prestigious Super Bowl, which always attracts fans of this sport worldwide in early February. Most recently, the Los Angeles Rams were able to lift the Lombardi trophy and celebrate in front of their home crowd in California. In order for football fans in Germany to first do without their sport in September, around 400 clubs in seven different leagues will have to play matches from April onwards. Including the Fellbach Warriors, who fought for the Oberliga title last year and were promoted to the Regional League as undefeated champions. They are now in the third division and have written club history with this promotion. In the 20 years since the SV Fellbach football division has existed, it has never happened before.

The Men in Orange has three new players, some of whom are well known

“Of course we can not rest on our laurels now,” says head coach Timo Müller. Therefore, just three weeks after winning the title, they started training again on the artificial turf pitches on Esslinger Strasse. In addition, they worked a lot off the field in their spare time, says Timo Müller. The men in orange have signed a contract with three players, including two good friends. Above all, they should close the gaps left by injured top players. Last season, combined with hard training, took its toll.

Ruben Pain, former youth player for the Fellbach Warriors, returns to his old workplace after staying with the Stuttgart Scorpions and Surge. “Unfortunately, I did not get much playing time in the European League,” says running back Ruben Pain. “So I decided to take a step back to take the chance to develop myself as a player.” The other addition is Abdelghafour Sedik, who also came from the Stuttgart Scorpions and now wants to strengthen the Fellbach Warriors as a center in the offensive line, protecting their own playmaker from opposing attacks. “My goal is to put the league’s best offensive line with the boys this year,” said Abdelghafour Sedik. “With the passion that reigns here on the team, it’s also possible.” The living legend Tom Brady announced his retirement on Monday, joining the Tampa Bay Bucaneers in what is now his 23rd season in the NFL. The Fellbach Warriors can also look forward to a top-class player returning.

season with second-placed Haller Einhörner for the German championship, the sport turned its back on professional reasons, “but then the phone rang”. At the other end of the line was Timo Müller. “Then it was clear that I would be back on the field with the boys from Fellbach, which I am especially looking forward to.” The coaching staff was happy too. “Despite the misery of our injury, we are getting into a good rhythm with Marco and we can show the competitors that we are competitive in the regional league after promotion,” said Timo Müller.

In a friendly match next Saturday at 17.00 at home in Fellbach against X-Press from Landsberg an der Lech, the team can show how competitive it already is – almost a month before the start of the season on 16 April at home against Albershausen Crusaders.
