Hello Joseph, the Cottbus Crayfish are looking forward to welcoming you to our family for the 2020 season. Please introduce yourself briefly to our fans, football friends and readers.
My name is Joseph Cox and I usually go by the name „Joey.“ I am a 22 year old Wide Receiver from Southern California, USA. I recently finished my collegiate football career at Gannon University, a NCAA Division 2 university in Erie, Pennsylvania. I have been playing football since I was 9 years old and continue to love the game more and more throughout my many experiences. I am extremely excited for this opportunity to play for the Crayfish and I am going to do whatever I can to be an exceptional teammate and help the team win.
Have you had any impressions of American football in Germany or been able to collect information about them?
From what I understand, American Football is a fast growing game in Germany and will continue to gain popularity. I know that the knowledge I bring when it comes to certain details of American Football will benefit those around me who have a desire to learn more about the game and I am excited to have the opportunity to share that knowledge.
Was it your plan to play American football in Germany and why did you choose the Cottbus Crayfish?
I do not necessarily have a plan for my American football career in Germany, but I do plan on being the best possible teammate that I am capable of being for my teammates. I was introduced to the Cottbus Crayfish by Richard Makowski, who played for the Crayfish before playing at Gannon where I got a chance to play two seasons with him. After learning more about Cottbus and getting to know the Headcoach, it was clear that the Crayfish were a perfect fit for me. I can’t wait for the season!
