Elffers Signs with Samsung Frankfurt Universe of the Germany Football League

Andrew Elffers in his first game in the Germany Football League.

By Tim Peterson

Former Maranatha/ Azusa Pacific quarterback Andrew Elffers has signed with the Samsung Frankfurt Universe- a power house in the Germany Football League.

Elffers played his first game last Saturday with Frankfurt and his next game is Saturday June 16.

Elffers scrambles for big yards.

Elffers starred in high school at Maranatha before going on to play at Azusa Pacific where he was the full time starter over the majority of the last two years.

“The competition is fairly good over here. There’s a lot of NFL bounce backs,” Elffers said. “My first game playing was for their mid season championship called the Euro Bowl.”

For Elffers it’s an opportunity to continue playing the sport that he loves.

Elffers first game in the GFL was the “Euro Bowl.”

    Salesian’s Glory Days are gone. No more changing grades for The Football Players at Salesian. The Ghetto Coaches are gone after Football Season last year. Back to D13 where Salesian Belongs.

    Congratulations to Elffers!! How about giving some props to the two Salesian Mustangs that were just selected to the NFL. Jermane Kelly was drafted in the 7th round by the Houston Texans and Chris Gonzalez was picked up as a free agent by the Minnesota Vikings. There is also an alum playing overseas in Europe. Jihad Vercher plays in Serbia. Over the past weekend his team won a championship and he was selected most valuable player. Is Salesian in your coverage area?? If they aren’t they should be.

    If this club had a cross-town rival, it might be named the Sony Frankfurt Fuhrers, a team that in time might come close to dominating the world of football.
