2014 is definitely the year where European players got their chance to shine and become imports. We're bringing you stories of some of these remarkable athletes!
Former teams: Budapest Wolves - Hungary, Helsinki 69ers - Finland
In 2013., I played in Finland for the Helsinki 69ers in the Maple league. The team was very nice with a lot of helpful and good people and Helsinki was crazy and beautiful at the same time during the summer.
I signed my contract for 2014. I will play for the Carlstad Crusader in Sweden. They are a young and very motivated team and I'm looking forward to be a part of their organization and get as many Wins as we can!

Babatunde Aiyegbusi - OL - Dresden Monarchs, Germany
Former teams: The Crew Wroclaw, Wroclaw Giants - Poland
In 2013, I played with the Wroclaw Giants where we won the National Championship - where I was named the Best OL Of The Year. I am also the member of the Polish National Team, and played in the Euro-American Challenge in 2012 in Warsaw.
Reason why I'm 'becoming an import' is because I want to get more knowledge about the game. I want to learn how to be the best OL in Europe. I will bring this knowledge back to Poland and use it to teach others.
I'm going to play in Dresden and willing to use this opportunity, playing in Big6 will be a great experience. Being a part of one of The Best Teams in European Football is a great feeling and huge motivation. Hope I will not let anyone down and will represent my country best way I can.

Branko Mutic - OL - Osnabruck Tigers, Germany
Former team: Belgrade Vukovi - Serbia
This is my second consecutive season with the Osnabruck Tigers.
Besides the desire to experience football outside of Serbia, one of the goals is also to work and study. I have a great opportunity in Osnabruck, that is why I decided to return for the upcoming season.
Team is not as big as the one in Belgrade, but is well organised, has potential, and real family atmosphere.
