Over the next few months, we will be introducing the world to a few of our players.
First up is a member of the senior team; Mark Brown. These are his own words.
Position: Left Guard/Defensive Tackle
I have been a member of the Burnley Tornados for just over a year now and I have loved every minute of it. I am a mechanical engineer by trade (CNC Turning) and I enjoy watching sports of any kind from football, rugby, American football… all the way to cricket.
I have always enjoyed playing physical sports such as rugby but because of my fitness level I was never able to make a first team, so I thought I would try American football, AND I LOVED IT. It’s by far one of the most physical and challenging games I have ever played. I think many people would love this game because we train to make each other better. Every little victory is celebrated and when something isn’t going right, people are patient and understanding. It is also a friendly environment where you can learn a new and exciting sport and gain a lot more friends in the process.
Check back soon for more updates, and in the meantime-please spread the word that we are always recruiting, and there may be rookie camps in November….watch this space! @burnleytornados on Twitter
