As the Hamburg Sea Devils reported, Evans Yeboah and Tim Hänni were signed to the roster for the 2022 season.

Tim Hänni is a powerful addition to the Hamburg Sea Devils' defensive line. The 25-year-old Swiss brings perfect dimensions with his 125 kg and 1.96 m height to accept the challenge of the European League of Football. Hänni previously played for the Bern Grizzlies of the Swiss first division, where he also put on an outstanding performance in the final.

Challenge in the best European Football League

The Hamburg Sea Devils were also able to win back Evans Yeboah for the upcoming season. The 27-year-old born Ghanaian caused a sensation directly through his physicality. Last season he was one of the pillars of the defensive line with six and a half sacks, 16 tackles for loss,an interception and a fumble recovery touchdown. Coaches and officials consider themselves fortunate to be able to rely on such players in the coming season as well.

"Games are won and lost in the trenches"

Kendral Ellison was quoted in the press release: "Re-signing Yeboah was priority number one. As I mentioned before, continuity is key to success and building a championship program. Evans embodies everything the Brotherhood is about. He’s fast, he’s physical, he’s violent but most importantly he’s driven to do things the right way. He’s one of the leaders on this defense and someone everyone loves to be around. Tim Hänni is a gem! He’s big, he’s fast, and he’s explosive. Watching his film reminded me a lot of Evans. The idea of pairing them together along our other guys gives me goosebumps. After this season he won’t be a hidden gem anymore. Games are won and lost in the trenches and we took a step in the right direction with these additions.“

Tim Hänni seems happy about his signing with the Hanseatic team: "I want to form a solid and strong team with the Hamburg Sea Devils that will stop at nothing. We want to dominate the conference and bring the trophy to Hamburg at the end. I chose the Hamburg Sea Devils because they are an up-and-coming and ambitious team."

Already have added Glen Toonga, Lamar Jordan II, Miguel Boock, Jean Constant, Lewis Thomas and Kevin Fortes to the 2022-squad.
