Herts Cheetahs, St Albans’ American football team, is hoping Sunday night’s epic Super Bowl has inspired teenagers to take up the sport.
The New England Patriots beat the Seattle Seahawks 28-24 in a thrilling final in Arizona to lift the Vince Lombardi Trophy. It is the fourth time the Patriots have won the NFL’s most coveted prize.
With an estimated 114.4m people watching Super Bowl 49, and next year’s NFL International Series tickets already running low, the Cheetahs are hoping to cash in on the game’s growing popularity but recruiting 17-19 year olds for its junior section. So, if you want to throw like Tom Brady, catch like Rob Gronkowski or shut down receivers like Richard Sherman, the club has qualified and passionate coaches to help you.
The Cheetahs also have a youth (14-16) section and a cheerleader squad.
Training for the juniors starts at 10.30am on Sundays, and 6.30pm Wednesdays. Youth training is at 1pm on Sundays.
