Top Specialists in the Maple League

The term is SPECIAL teams, not average teams, or backup teams. It has proven time and time again in American Football that Special Teams can make all the difference between winning and losing. A good field goal kicker means you only have to get to the 30 yard line to win a game late in the 4th quarter. A great punter helps flip the field when your forced to punt the ball away. A top notch returner can change the score of a game on kickoff or punt return for a touchdown, as well as the momentum. The Maple League is one of the few leagues in Europe where the difference of approcahes regarding special teams is evident by the dominance of the top players. Here’s some of the best in the Vaahteraliiga.
