Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - SPORT -

Games ath­letes and watched the full train­ing ses­sion be­fore be­ing in­tro­duced to head coach Gus Bradley and his team, while play­ers Ryan Davis and Henry Josey gave them an in­tro­duc­tion on how to play the game.

Har­ris said: “Ever since I was a child I have re­ally liked Amer­i­can foot­ball, so it was such a fan­tas­tic op­por­tu­nity to come and meet the guys and see just how big some of th­ese chaps are.

“It was fan­tas­tic speak­ing with them and it was re­ally in­ter­est­ing to pick their brains about their prepa­ra­tion and how they keep their fo­cus as pro­fes­sional ath­letes. I was a Cow­boys fan as a boy, but I am fully be­hind the Jaguars now!”

Jaguars player Johnathan Cy­prien added: “We have a mas­sive amount of re­spect for those brave enough to serve in the Armed Forces, and, as we’d heard about the In­vic­tus Games, we were keen to meet some of the com­peti­tors. It was great to have them down to our base and give them a taste of Amer­i­can foot­ball.”
