It’s that time of the year again, NFL fans all over the world will be glued to the screens to watch the NFL Draft 2021 to see which hot college prospect their team chooses. Sam Morgan and Daniel Faluyi join Andre Dixon to discuss the possible destinations for Trevor Lawrence, Zach Wilson, Justin Fields etc.
This special episode also includes and exclusive interview with Freddie Pelling from the NFL Academy who is now preparing to play college football in the United States.
The NFL Academy offers student athletes aged 16-19 the opportunity to combine their education with a life skills programme and an intensive training in the sport, under the guidance of full- time professional coaches.
Education is the main priority and, in partnership with Barnet and Southgate College in North London, the Academy aims to create pathways into further education, employment and potentially an opportunity to study and play NCAA college football in the United States.
Athletes have access to elite sports training facilities, kit and equipment, as well as an opportunity to learn from players and coaches from the NFL. The character development programme aims to provide students with the tools to be successful in whatever pathway they take following the NFL Academy.
This unique opportunity is open to students aged 16-19. Entry into the Academy is based upon a series of physical tryouts, along with a one-to-one interview and educational assessment. Successful students will be offered provisional places, dependent on meeting academic requirements.
