Steven Duncan: Bringing massive presence to Wrocław with big expectations

The first-year ELF quarterback will be the largest passer in the league this season, measuring in at a massive 198 m and 110 kg. Duncan’s size and of course skill look to lead the Panther's reloaded 2024 team into the post-season this September. Duncan is one of several new talents joining an already experienced and gritty Wrocław team hoping to take the next step in their chase for the ELF championship. Duncan commented on why he joined the Panthers this past off season:

"I joined Wrocław because it is a place that is all in on bringing an ELF Championship to the city and the country of Poland. The coaches and players are all in on doing whatever it takes to win. The facilities look amazing; they are by far one of the top facilities in Europe, with everything being accessible in one place."

Duncan’s record-breaking 2023 season cannot be overlooked

Duncan spent his first season in 2023 with the Dresden Monarchs of the German Football League, helping them reach the semifinals. The Division I product was statistically the league’s best passer, throwing for an eye-popping 4,703 and 58 touchdowns, leading the league in both categories. Even with the high volume of throws, Duncan remained efficient, boasting a 68 percentage completion percentage, throwing only eight interceptions in 14 games.

Duncan’s best game came last year on July 1 as he shattered a league record throwing for an incredible nine touchdowns, going 32-36 and throwing for 378 yards in a 62-32 win.

Before coming to Germany in 2023, Duncan spent his last two college seasons with the Tarleton State Texans (NCAA DI FCS) throwing for 4,047 yards, 30 touchdowns, and 12 interceptions in 18 games. During his junior season in 2021, the Charleston, South Carolina native threw for a career-best 2,505 and 19 touchdowns. Duncan began his college career at the NCAA DI FBS program Western Kentucky, where he started eight games and threw for 1,863 yards and 14 touchdowns, before transferring to Tarleton State in 2020. 

Wrocław’s stacked offense gives Duncan a plethora of talented targets

The Panthers offense and Duncan have an impressive collection of skilled players to work with, as the Panthers signed All-ELF tight end Adria Bottello Moreno and former NFL wide receiver Matt Cole to complement their new quarterback.

Joining Duncan in the backfield will be break-out homegrown star Dawid Brzozowski and Gennadiy Adams, giving Coach Dave Christensen and Duncan two running backs to lean on behind a talented offensive line.
