Roosters have signed quarterback Micah Brown (178cm/ 83kg). Brown played seasons 2013-2014 in Germany (GFL) for the Marburg Mercenaries. In 2015 Brown has already finished playing a complete season in Poland where he led Gdynia Seahawks to the Polish League SuperFinal win.
Helsinki Roosters Head Coach Juha Hakala is impressed about his talent, “Micah is very good athlete that has good arm strength. He also have lot of experience in coaching and playing in Europe in high level that will support the shorter time frame of getting ready for upcoming games as he jumps in the mix half way point of the season.”
We had a short interview with Micah:
What is your first impression of Helsinki Roosters and what made you sign with Helsinki Roosters as your team?
My first impression of the Roosters is one of a quality and sustainable organization in the Euro-American football community. The history of the club and the communication with Juha Hakala and Jens Holmström has been instrumental in my decision. I am honored to to say the least, to be a Helsinki Rooster.
Its going to be very short period to prepare for the first game, how are you going to prepare for it?
The preparation for this will be a new territory for me, as I have been divulging all of my efforts into my current team and focusing on preparing to win the Polish League SuperFinal. However communication goes a long way on the football field and I’m sure things will begin to form upon my arrival in Helsinki.
What do you hope to accomplish with Roosters in 2015?
My ambition is to assist in developing the players on the field and hopefully have a positive impact with the guys and in the community. Most people say they just want to win. I’ll take that even further. I expect to win in everything; win in film, win in the weight room, win in tossing my bottle in the trash can, just WIN! And I will bring that competitive and professional spirit with me.
Do you have any special comments to our fans?
Looking forward to having a meet and greet with you’ll. The ’Sink will be back on top! We are 12!!
