Guarding the Field: Carlton Aiken’s New Chapter

In a recent strategic move, the Helvetic Guards have secured former Barcelona Dragons signal-caller Carlton Aiken to lead their offense in the upcoming 2024 season. The announcement has sparked interest across the league, as teams shore up their rosters in preparation for the new year of competition.

At the ripe age of 25, Aiken’s robust resume features noteworthy accolades such as NE10 conference MVP recognition and multiple All-Conference team selections. His tenure at Pace University was marked by a prolific offensive output, threading passes for over 5,000 yards, in addition to punching in 20 touchdowns with his own legs over 29 games.

Aiken’s Arrival: The Statistical Edge

With his track record of 354 passing yards, a couple of touchdown connections, and a rushing score in his limited professional stints, Aiken’s knack for dynamic plays could tilt the scoreboard in favor of the Guards.

As we inch closer to the 2024 kick-off, all eyes will be on Aiken’s performance and the Guards’ strategic fortification.
