Rugby and football dominate the headlines, but I decided to jump outside the box and discuss another oval ball game, one that has come from across the pond. Familiar with it or not, this Sunday, Super Bowl LIII takes place in Atlanta, USA, as the New England Patriots take on the Los Angeles Rams in one of sports’ yearly greatest events. To bring you the hype and show what this sport is all about, I took myself down to watch Bedford’s very own American football team, the Ouse Valley Eagles, pad up and practice ahead of their up and coming season.
Here in this brief documentary I show you how American football can be for anyone, any shape any size or any ability, there is a place for everyone. The boys at the Ouse Valley Eagles welcome people to come down and get involved in their weekly Sunday practices.
