A New Signing for Devils’ Defense

Stepping up their game for the upcoming European League of Football (ELF) season, the Hamburg Sea Devils have secured a promising British talent, Toby Naylor. At just 23 years old, this Southampton native brings a commendable mix of youth and experience to his new team.

Beginning of a New Chapter

It’s a major career move for Naylor, who conveyed his enthusiasm about joining the Sea Devils. He remarked, “I’m excited to become a Sea Devil and have heard nothing but good things about the city, the franchise and the team culture. I’m excited to do my part.” Naylor is set to contribute his robust skills honed across various teams in England, including the Solent Seahawks Academy and the Bristol Pride Academy.

Career Highlights and Expectations

Throughout his tenure at Brevard College, Naylor’s performance was nothing short of stellar. In 45 games, he amassed 254 total tackles, an impressive 38 tackles for loss, and snatched four interceptions. It’s this track record that has stirred enthusiasm among the Sea Devils’ coaching staff.

Leadership and Tactical Acumen

Former Sea Devils middle linebacker and now Director of Sports Miguel Boock has confidence in Naylor’s ability. “With Toby, we were able to sign a defensive ‘field general’ that is rarely found in European football,” Boock expressed. “Especially at the middle linebacker position, it’s important to have someone with leadership qualities and football IQ.” Naylor’s three-year cap as team captain at college is a testament to those qualities.

A Strategic Acquisition

Naylor’s deliberate goals and positive attitude were crucial in his signing with the Sea Devils. Boock’s excitement about Naylor’s commitment to the team speaks volumes about the potential impact Naylor will have not only on the Sea Devils’ defense but also on ELF as a whole.
