Our mission: take American football in Europe to the next level!
WILLIAMSBURG, Va. - While the world's best athletes have come to Alex Jenkins' backyard this month, the London native is focusing his efforts on a sport that has never made it into the Olympic rotation.
Jenkins picked up the game of football just over a year ago, and immediately felt at home on the gridiron. Active in team competition throughout his formative years, the 6-foot-4 and 240-pound prospect has the size and has shown a knack for the game in the short time he has played it. He has also grown to love the sport he knows as "American football."
|Jenkins has been playing football for just over a year.|
"It did kind of pop out of nowhere," Jenkins noted. "I played soccer at a high level back in London for about seven or eight years, but I did kind of get bored with it. I played rugby as well, which is similar [to football].
"I was searching on the Internet for new sports, and American football just seemed perfect for me physically. Athletically I was always above people in soccer, and [football] seemed like it would suit me better. I just love it and feel like it was built for me."
The introduction to football came just over a year ago for Jenkins. Now 19 years old and having already graduated from high school, he is hoping to attract the attention of college coaches in the United States despite his late introduction to the game.
Taking part in Football University's Top Gun Camp in Virginia earlier this month was one step toward that goal. Jenkins lined up against Rivals250 offensive linemen Steve Elmer, Chris Fox and John Montelus and not only held his own, but won his fair share of repetitions. His performance earned him a top five ranking among big men at the camp.
