The Stuttgart Surge are bringing back their star wide receiver Paul Steigerwald for the 2022 season.

Steigerwald led Stuttgart in receiving in 2021, ending the year with 30 receptions for 413 yards and 3 touchdowns. While the Surge may not have ended 2021 how they would’ve liked, Steigerwald is excited to get back out on the field, stating,

“My goal for the 2022 season is to show the fans good football and that we can compete in a our division and that we can compete in this league!”

The Swarco Raiders have re-signed their versatile 2-way player, Davion Washington, for the team’s first season in the European League of Football.

Washington originally joined the Swarco Raider in 2021 as a defensive back, but he’d also take snaps as a wide receiver, running back, and kick/punt returner due to late-season injuries and played a significant role in the Raiders championship victory.

Washington addressed the media regarding his return to the Raiders, stating,

“I’m excited to play alongside my brothers again this season. I think that we will get new challenges in the European League of Football and will be pushed to new heights.”
