  1. This thing's been around forever, come give it a shot! And mark me as your recruiter if you don't mind
  2. Morgan Pioveson has been spotted working out at the gym multiple times over the course of the past week, and he had this to say about his regimented training routine. “I have been working very hard to get my speed up with some cardio workouts, because really in the EFL, speed kills. It’s the most important attribute in today’s football game, so I need to be faster. I saw on the roster that my assessed speed rating is up to 80, so it’s clear I’m starting to get results and the hard work is paying off. Then of course, as a defensive player I need some crazy strength, so I’m lifting and doing core exercises. There are some big guys I’m up against, so I need to be able to tackle even the most sizeable guys in the league. Hopefully my coaches and the fans pick up on how hard I’m working, I want to make a good impression and perform on the pitch. Getting to a top level of athleticism and strength is the perfect goal for this point in my career, and it’s really about elevating my game beyond the point it was in in the NCAA,” said Morgan Pioveson.
  3. Morgan Pioveson's rookie experience has been quite trying and chaotic at times. As a third round draft pick, he initially felt overlooked, and expectations certainly weren't high for a guy picked so late. Pioveson was then sent to the Seattle Predators per his request and has been seeking to win, but the season hasn't fulfilled all of his hopes. The Predators are thankfully hanging on to second place in their division right now which is quite the relief to him, but the close playoff race is stressful and nerve-wracking. For a rookie player inexperienced with the league and dealing with trials though, Pioveson has not let it affect him on the turf though. Through 9 games, he's made 38 tackles, keeping up with the insanely fast and strong offensive players running for touchdowns. The athleticism, talent, and strength of the veteran players is impressive to say the least, perhaps intimidating. Pioveson knew going into the league how high the skill level was, but it was impossible for his mind to truly register just how high it was until he was squaring off against them and trying to tackle them. He has had to work hard and taking his training up to the next level in order to compete, and he knows now that he has a long way to go to become a great defensive player for his team. What's left is to see how the season goes and to try not to succumb to the pressure if Seattle makes the playoffs. Pioveson wants to experience the EFL postseason firsthand, feel the surge of energy from the roar of the crowd and the goosebumps from the intensity of the big game. He hasn't seen it yet, but he can imagine in his head as if he was already there. Just the talk from reporters in post-game press conferences is enough to spike his heart rate from excitement, to make him wonder if the Predators have a chance at a title. The odds would be difficult, but after all the challenges Pioveson has faced early on in his career, he is not backing down from anything and not scared to take on any team that Seattle would have to face. All in all, his EFL rookie season has been a great opportunity for growth and self-discovery, and this is a rookie that is on the rise.
  4. Morgan Pioveson entered the NCAA in the S10, finding a lot of interest in him as a safety due to the lack of defensive players available in the system. He searched for a college willing to offer him a sizeable scholarship, and the USC Trojans proved their commitment by offering him a large sum of money. That interest seemed to pay off, as Pioveson made a strong first impression, notably getting 89 tackles, which was the 10th largest number of tackles in the entire NCAA. The Trojans went 6-8 though in spite of Pioveson's solid rookie season and finished third in their division, so it would be left to S11 for Pioveson to improve on his stats and for the Trojans to go for gold. A sophomore now with a full season of professional football under his belt, Pioveson hit the turf brimming with confidence, but that confidence quickly melted a way with a slow start for him personally. His numbers regressed significantly, only getting 52 tackles, although he did get 4 interceptions. The Trojans, however, improved, earning a winning record of 8-6 and landing second in their division. Pioveson decided he would be hitting the EFL draft the next year, so his junior year would be his last shot; he needed to be better than he was during this sophomore slump. In his final season, Pioveson improved his numbers from S11's dismal performance, acquiring 68 tackles over the course of the year. He failed to re-take the glory of his rookie season, but at least he had taken a step in the right direction. The Trojans stayed about the same in his final year, finishing again with an 8-6 record and second in their division, so with progress having stalled, Pioveson knew that the EFL was the right decision. College had been fun, but now it was time to head to the top level. He would reflect on his days as a Trojan fondly, but the EFL would be best for his player development; it was clear he needed good coaching after the steps backward he had taken since his rookie year.

  6. Morgan Pioveson just got drafted to the EFL and starts his career, getting picked at the start of the third round. He was flipped to Seattle after not wanting to play for a winless team, and he's been trying to make every second count since going to the big leagues. "As a safety, I'm able to make a big difference for Seattle defensively, so I'm glad I ended up here. We've had a solid start, we are 3-2 5 games in and in second place in our division, so I would say we have a chance to make a splash and go places in the playoffs. Ultimately, you just need depth and grit on the turf to win some games, and that's something we have a lot of on the Predators roster. I think people are just starting to take us seriously, and I'm just starting to get noticed a lot since I'm more engaged since leaving the NCAA. I'm willing to work hard to make the big tackles and catch the league's fastest receivers. I'm going to prove everything who didn't see me or overlooked me wrong and it starts from day one, from this season, right here, right now," Pioveson said.
  7. My EFL legend of choice is Colt Cream, a running back turned wide receiver who is one of the best receiving players of all time, just behind Phoenix Hood III in receiving yards with 13,605 Yards. He's one of the top players in almost every statistic; his legend stems from him scoring a lot, as the guy who has registered the most receiving touchdowns in EFL history. His 105 receiving touchdowns is 28 more than any other player, putting him pretty much in a league of his own in that category. He did it all on the turf in a way that few can or will ever come close to; his 692 receptions are third all time. He's top three in the most important receiving statistics, and that's what makes him a player that won't be easily forgotten. Few can impact their franchises offensively in such a manner, and he's not done yet, he's still going strong and adding to his legend every game week, he could easily be #1 in all of these categories before he retires. He may be a veteran, but age doesn't seem to be slowing him down at all; as they say, legends never die. He is a big piece of Los Angeles this year and it is yet to be seen how he does this year, but a strong start makes it appear as though he will continue to set records and impress everyone. When he retires, it is expected he will appear in the Hall of Fame, and many of his records seem unbeatable; it's almost unfathomable just how good Colt Cream really is. Not only is he good on the turf, but he's a positive influence for his team off of it too, so he makes for a true EFL hero and legend in every way.

  10. Morgan Pioveson played in college for the USC Trojans, and as a safety, Pioveson plays a much needed position for many EFL clubs. He is well rounded, having trained to build up many areas of his game, with Tackling, Hands, and Speed notably within 2 of each other at 71, 72, and 70 respectively. This means that Pioveson can make important tackles, catch up to opponents who are running away with the ball, and intercept passes when opportunities arise. The Trojans will be sad to see him go, but he will offer a lot to whoever his new team is. He is backed by an agent who has a lot of experience with sim leagues, so while he will be a new face to the EFL, he will have someone knowledgeable about the inner workings and quirks of sim leagues to give him guidance and advice. Pioveson weighs in at 210 pounds and stands 74 inches tall, which is about the maximum for the Zone Cover Strong Safety archetype, and that frame is all muscle. While he does not have monstrous size, he does possess decent strength and intelligence to compensate. In this offseason, he is continuing to train vigorously as he has for his three years in the NCAA, and he is trying to get faster, stronger, and smarter before entering the pros. He hopes that his tenacity and work ethic will impress EFL coaches and GMs, as well as make a good first impression on his new teammates. His athleticism is top notch; he maintains his physique by working out multiple times a day and consuming a high protein, healthy diet. His work to make it extends off the turf to his lifestyle, as even when he doesn't have to practice or nobody is watching, he will be found managing his nutrition and exercising in the gym. This drive cannot be taught by any coach, and that's one reason why Pioveson is a flawless asset for a team. Scouts may not have noticed him much leading up to the draft, but they certainly will after; Pioveson is going to make an impact in the EFL.
