Berlin Thunder have signed Swedish edge player Emil Hovde to their 2023 European League of Football roster. Hovde is just 22-years old and previously played for the Mercer University in the NCAA Division I FCS in 2021 and 2022. As a product of RIG Academy, one of Swedish finest youth programs, Hovde will likely play on the opposite side of two-time defensive player Kyle Kitchens. Hovde also joins Ludvig Myren – another Swedish athlete active for Berlin Thunder.

Football player fitting right in

Before joining the Mercer University, the 1,90 m and 105 kg defensive player went through the Göteborg Marvels youth, RIG Academy and later Carlstad Crusaders as well as Clarion University (Div II). Hovde brings talent, quickness and first and foremost a lot of upside that the Berlin Thunder fits very well. He could develop into a weapon.
