The Towers offense will feature a new face in 2015. The Towers have reached an agreement with running back B.J. Lee, formerly of SMU and JSU. Lee will join the Towers in March 2015.
Known for his blazing speed, B.J. will join an offensive unit that boasts an outstanding offensive line and aggressive wide receivers. The addition of Lee goes hand in hand with head coach Peter Herbild's ambitions of improving the offensive backfield prior to the 2015 season.
The Towers are very excited that Victor Andersen and Peter Herbild have committed to the team for 2015. Peter Herbild enters his fifth full season as the Towers head coach, while Victor Andersen is about to embark on this first season as defensive coordinator.
In addition to being the head coach, Peter Herbild will serve as the offensive coordinator as well. This is a change from previous years in which Peter was the defensive coordinator as well as the head coach.
On the annual award night Towers' staff concluded a great 2014 season by honoring a number of this season's key players and top performers. Linebacker Philip Hargett received the biggest accolade as he was named the team MVP.
Being the vocal leader and captain on the defense, Philip Hargett, wearing jersey number 55, was arguably one of the main forces behind the Towers' second Mermaid Bowl title in as many seasons. To be deemed as the most valuable player of his team has the linebacker extremely pleased. Before the season began, Hargett decided to quit cross-fit and dedicate himself to the purple.
"It's so cool to get the feeling that such a decision actually pays off. I would be lying if I told you that it was my goal to become the team MVP before the season but it was a clear ambition of mine to be one of the cornerstones on the defense and help raise the level of play of the unit," Hargett said on his new title.
Just days before QB JR Artozqui's final flight back to California, Towers Media sat down with JR, on the field that he spent so many hours on, for one last chat.
It was a casual talk about the past five seasons, being the longest tenured import player in Towers' history, winning two Mermaid Bowls and of course about the future.
The Copenhagen Towers have crowned a spectacular season with a historic 26-3 Mermaid Bowl win over the Aarhus Tigers. With the win Towers become the first team to lift the prestigious trophy for a sixth time.
A fantastic season that featured multiple appearances in the IFAF European Champions League and a 9-1 regular season record in the National League has come to a conclusion. In the biggest game of the year the defending champions demonstrated that they are indeed back on top of American football here in Denmark. Facing off against the only team to beat the purple this year - Aarhus Tigers - surely added another dimension of excitement to the game.
