Stuttgart Surge sign American wide receiver Bryce Nunnelly
The Stuttgart Surge are adding player after player to their roster for the 2023 season under new head coach Jordan Neuman.
Former Division I wide receiver Bryce Nunnelly will join the Surge on their quest to have a positive record for their first time in franchise history!
Fun Fact: Nunnelly is the first American wide receiver the Surge have signed in their young franchise history. In previous years, Stuttgart relied on an American quarterback paired up with an American tight end.
In a statement, Nunnelly express his excitement to join the Surge in the European League of Football. “I am excited and grateful for this opportunity to play for the Stuttgart Surge for the 2023 season,“ Nunnelly commented via the team’s press release. “The franchise has a bright future, and I am excited to play alongside and compete against great talent from all over Europe. This is an exceptional opportunity for me to continue to improve myself both professionally and personally, on and off the field.”

Nunnelly even joined the Kansas City Chiefs and the Tennessee Titans in their rookie mini camps in 2022, after he finished his collegiate career at Western Michigan. From 2017 to 2020, Nunnelly has played for the Chattanooga Mocs where he was named 1st Team All-Southern Conference because of his great accomplishments on the field.
Last season, the American wideout has played for Surge head coach Jordan Neuman at the Schwäbisch Hall Unicorns in the German Football League. After putting up promising numbers, Nunnelly was invited for a try out by the St. Louis Battlehawks of the XFL. However, he did not make the team and now follows his old head coach to the European League of Football in 2023.
Surge keep stacking on offense
The Stuttgart Surge now have a stacked wide receiver room with Bryce Nunnelly joining former Tirol Raiders wide receiver Yannick Mayr, former Rookie of the Year Louis Geyer, and fan-favorite Paul Steigerwald.
It will be interesting to see how defense try to defend all of Reilly Hennessey’s weapons when the third-ever European League of Football season kicks off on the first weekend of June.
