Best homegrowns: Local players show out in week 3

In the European League of Football, it is worth taking a look at the young players and homegrown veterans. Every year, new faces emerge who prove their strength and inspire the fans locally. After two weeks, a few stand out in particular:

Leon Balogh

The 28-year-old defensive end stood out in an impressive show out by the Vikings' defense last weekend. Against the Panthers, Balogh had three sacks, resulting in a forced fumble and a safety, to secure the win in the Eastern Conference.

Bais Kouanda

The young Hamburg-born wideout is trying his best to get a breakout year. Featured last week, Bais Kouanda had another great game in week 3. Against the Enthroners, Kouanda had a touchdown and 67 yards, with respectable yards after the catch.

Hugo Tekedam

Seen as one of the greatest European talents in the league, Tekedam is ready to make moves. The young Frenchman had 106 yards and secured important first downs against the Galaxy like it was nothing. One to watch for the Paris Musketeers.

Justin Rodney

Rodney went into his fourth year in the league this summer. After joining the Ravens last year, Rodney has seemingly found a new role as a receiving and rushing hybrid for the Ravens. With 60 yards rushing and a rushing touchdown, as well as one touchdown receiving and 54 yards through the air, the German is the epitome of a Swiss army knife.

Ruben Seeber

Three tackles, one interception, two tackles for loss. Seeber, wearing the number 1, is the key to performances of the Raiders Tirol. If he performs well, the defense seems impossible to stop. As an inside linebacker, he gets more and more important.

Tobias Bonatti

Bonatti has taken over the starting running back role in the Alps like a champ. With another good game, racking up 144 yards and a touchdown, Bonatti has shown his great potential when provided with enough opportunities.

Dawid Brzozowski

Despite losing to a great Vikings team, Brzozowski stands for the Panthers' toughness like no other player. The young Polish running back again had 144 yards, with his longest rush being over 28 yards. Despite sharing snaps with Gennadiy Adams, Brzozowski has developed into the clear starter.
