Six players from Australia, Denmark, Sweden and Germany opened their NEPSAC (New England Preparatory School Athletic Council) season with a victory. Damien Scannella (Stockholm, Sweden) made a huge impact during his first game with Kent School (Conn.), as he had three receptions for 72 yards including the game-winning touchdown.
The USA Football International Student Program is in its fourth year of giving student athletes from around the world an opportunity to play prep school American Football in the United States.
USA Football and the International Federation of American Football (IFAF) have announced that eight overseas student-athletes have enrolled in the USA Football International Student Program (ISP) for the 2009-10 academic year.
Now in its fourth year, the initiative is run by USA Football, the sport's national governing body on youth and amateur levels and endorsed by IFAF, which unites more than 50 American football federations worldwide.
