Stepping Out in Fine American Football Fashion - Jamaica American Football Association
Global Gridiron founder Rockin' Rich Lynch received the thrill of a lifetime when he and his team were issued one of 3000 media credentials to cover the 2019 NFL Draft in Nashville, Tennessee. True to his word he promised to wear the apparel of any international American Football organization at the event and just in the nick of time an express parcel arrived from the Jamaica American Football Association on April 25, 2019 - the first day of the Draft extravaganza in Music City.
Global Gridiron's Rockin' Rich Lynch has been called a "true champion of JAAFA".
The white jersey with Jamaican national colors and football logo turned a lot of heads as Lynch fielded questions about the garb that stood out mainly because it wasn't an NFL team related shirt. Who knows, maybe we will be holding a draft someday where players from the island nation will jump to the top of our board.
JAAFA MISSION STATEMENT: "The Jamaica American Football Association was born out of an genuine interest of youth and adults who wanted to play the game of Football. We have created a platform to do this and more by developing a mentor-ship program for our players, a coaches and officials certification program and a community development program through projects. Our programs are holistic and we engage all age groups and both sexes in our activities."
ABOUT THE GLOBAL GRIDIRON: The Global Gridiron monitors the growth of American Football around the world and exists to create strong ties with teams and organizations around the globe who work in the field of the great game. We are still seeking team and league apparel donations that we will wear around town, on stage and in many upcoming scheduled American Football themed photo shoots. Our founder has recently pledged to form a true International League of American Football League to be initially funded solely through the sale of MP3 music - read more!
