Ray and Sebastien attended the National U19 game Finland vs Russia. Ray handled  the coin toss, was a guest analyst during the game’s coverage and handed out the two MVP awards to the players that will   attend the academy in November.

Many thanks to Roope Noronen – Finnish Federation President, Jari Salonen – Head of Education and Tuomas Heikkinen National Team Head Coach.

At the Novemnber academy in Finland  Ray will be joined by other NFL Legends Kurt Barber, Rich Bartel, Ted Cottrell, Robert Ford and Hall of Famer Rod Woodson.

Knowing how many athletes and federations crave the knowledge of American football, the PFHOF Academy has been working hard to bring the academy to as many countries as we can. Finland being in the Nordic region is the perfect area for the academy and the SAJL Federation is excited for this opportunity. Later this year, the Academy will travel to promote and conduct clinics  in China, India, Slovakia, France, Switzerland, Netherlands and Mexico.
