Aggies and Jaguars
Imagine 2 Europeans signing a Full-Ride Scholarship with an FBS School and nobody in Europe is really talking about it. Long time EuroKickers William Testa(Italy) and Aleksi Pulkkinen(Finland) are about to kick off their Div.1 College Football Carrier this Saturday.
William Testa, from Bergamo, played 2 seasons and the Corona Year at the New Mexico Military Institute. He helped the Broncos to win a National Championship and was ranked the #1 Kicker in Junior College in the USA. Last Spring, he signed a Scholarship with Utah State University.

Pulkkinen, from Helsinki, will start as a Freshman at University of Southern
Alabama. His practice videos on Twitter, where he kicks in the Snow and Cold of
the Finish Winter, are legendary. But the hard work and consistency paid off
and now he will be sending balls into the sky across the south of the USA. (https://usajaguars.com/sports/football/roster/aleksi-pulkkinen/10664)
A very big “THANK YOU” goes out to Bradly Venerious and OneOnOne KickingUK. He is the missing puzzle piece, that we were looking for over the last couple of years, to really promote European Kickers and Punters. We are looking forward to join forces with Bradley in the future and see more European Kickers and Punters in the USA.
So to all Aggies and Jaguars, have fun and enjoy!
