  1. TownBizness sports agency, on the heels of another season wrapping up in the EFCA, posted a quick blurb on each of their current prospects. For their monthly recap, here's what the two players had to say about their recent time spent in the EFCA. Bobby Seale: I really wish I could've had that one extra point attempt back. It would've been nice to be perfect from football's version of the charity stripe. Unfortunately it didn't happen and it was my one blemish on that area of the game. Everything was good on that play too. The snap was fantastic. The protection was exactly what it needed to be. The hold was perfect, laces out and everything. I wish I could've blamed the field conditions or the weather or anything but myself but I can't. I just pushed it and it doinked off the upright. I'm working hard to make sure it doesn't happen again. Improvement is the name of the game. Huey P. Newton: Hats off the Manchester coaching staff for putting together a really solid season. I wanted to be a part of a winning football team and that's essentially what we are. Could we be better? Absolutely. Will we? I'm sure we will. As for myself, this was really just about getting my feet wet. I know I'm not the best defender on the team. I just don't put in enough hours. I'm hoping that my little hours put in the gym here and there can start to make a difference as I navigate through the EFCA. I know have major strides to make but it's a marathon and I'm just trying to get better a little bit at a time. Here's to next season! Stay tuned for more information as the two current prospects attempt to navigate through the EFCA on their way to the EFL. Until next time.
  2. TownBizness agency recently signed and delivered to young prospects to the EFCA. One offensive player, Bobby Seale, was signed as Kicker for the Roswell Encounter. The other, Huey Newton, a Strong Safety, was signed to the Manchester Lookout. Both prospects are experiencing their first taste of the EFCA as the season is currently 5 games underway. The agency recently caught up with both players to get a brief reflection on how their respective seasons are going: Bobby Seale: What can I say, I'd love an opportunity to win more. But we're currently sitting at one in and four losses. I know the coaching staff is working hard to try and move the needle the opposite direction, but right now it just seems like our offense is struggling to move the ball. I just haven't had a lot of opportunities to put the ball through the upright. I'm working the best I can on my game and I know I need to do better with my conversions. I'm just hoping that more opportunities will come my way in the future. Huey P. Newton: At the end of the day, we play this game to win. And winning is what we're doing in Manchester. The team has looked great and within our locker room, we really should be undefeated. I haven't really gotten an opportunity to play much, just doing what I can when my name is called. But until then, I'm just going to slowly work on my game and do what I can. Until next time.
  3. Bobby Seale and Huey P. Newton for week of 4/24.
  4. TownBizness Sports Management, whose previous player JuJu Williams called it a career a few seasons ago recently released this statement: Another month has passed and I’m still on the fence. Not on the fence about whether or not to bring a set of new talents to the EFL — but on the fence about the type of talent I need to be scouting. Previously I had my heart set on finding the next great — well serviceable wide receiver. All things considered, I’m happy with the type of talent that JuJu ultimately became. This time around I’m just not sure the type of talent I should be evaluating. I’ve been attending some kicking camps around the country. There’s some curiosity I have about bringing an kicker to the EFL someday. I think this could be relatively simple and strait forward allowing me to witness my player be successful on special teams. Obviously a quarterback is always fun — however I’m not sure we have the work ethic as an agency to completely find one worth the time in the EFL. I’m also carefully looking for a defensive player. I’ve seen many of flashy defensive backs make their presence felt as well as some top of the line linebackers. Maybe I should skip the sexy positions and find just a run stopping, gap plugging defensive tackle. Regardless, If there are any GMs or HCs out there who want to point me in the right direction, I’m all ears. Until next time
  5. As the career of first generation Wide Receiver and former EFL Champion JuJu Williams comes to a non-ceremonial end, ESPN.com was contacted by his agency who ultimately released the following statement regarding his career and future plans for the next player or players from the agency: "I'm not sure yet really. I mean, I know we've been scouting various types of players across the United States. But our agency hasn't quite decided are we going to go with another offensive player or try a defensive player or do both. Ideally, we have to find the right type of prospect that can maximize the talent given our level of management available. It's clear that we're a basketball first agency, but that doesn't mean that we're unable to produce quality talent in other sports as well. "In regards to JuJu -- he's enjoyed his time in the EFL over his career. He was able to carve out a nice little niche in his prime as a slot receiver -- someone who may not be the primary option or the number one threat on a scouting report -- yet someone who was able to exploit certain match-ups and produce when called up. He was incredibly found of his time in Denver and was able to experience success and winning there. Regardless of which direction we go, Williams will be consulted on future players that we bring through the agency. "Be on the look out soon for the newest members of the TownBizness Sports Management group."
  6. In a series of tweets, Denver Steam WR JuJu Williams spoke about this recent thoughts on his current state of mind regarding his career. Here's what he had to say: I wasn't sure what this season would hold for myself or for this outstanding organization. I knew that we had some pieces but wasn't sure what our top end ability would be. 1/5 We are currently in the middle of the pack with five wins and five losses. We've lost a couple that we probably should've won and hell, probably squeaked out a couple that we probably should've loss. 2/5 All in all, I love the fight of our team. I love our coach for not only all that he has done, but all that he continues to do to get us to compete season in season out as well as game in and game out. He's truly one of the best. On top of that, he has a unique eye for talent. 3/5 I really don't think there's much more I can do, or rather, not much more my body will allow me to do. Things just don't come easy anymore. I can't get in and out of my cuts as fast. I can't quite jump for the fades in the back of the end zone as much. 4/5 Hopefully, we can end this season on a high note, squeak into the playoffs and see if we can go on a miracle run. I know the Steam faithful are right behind us. And I hope you know that as always, I'm always grateful. JuJu out. 5/5
  7. In a recent social media post, long time Elite Football League Athlete and Denver Steam wideout released a thoughtful and reflective statement to his various followers across a variety of platforms. Transcribed below is a copy of that specific statement: To all of my family, friends and fans that I've gained during my career, I did not think that I had much gas left in the tank. Was I already running on fumes? How much more could my body and mind take in such a violent sport like this? Shoot, would anyone even want a corpse like me on their team? I can't say that I was surprised when my agency received a call from the Denver Steam management to come back for another season. I've been a great relationship with them and have trusted them to do what was best for me ever since I landed on their team. So I did not hesitate to say "yes" and I immediately got on the quickest flight to Denver to rejoin the team. While I know the season was not as elite as some of our previous seasons, I did what I could at my age to help the team. I ran my routes hard. I played every snap as if I was getting the ball. I blocked the best that I could for my running backs and fellow playmakers. Hell, I even managed to score a couple of touchdowns and almost crossed 800 yards. Not bad for the walking dead. I'm not quite sure what the future holds for JuJu Williams but once again I can say I'm happy to have played for the Steam and look forward to the next chapter. JuJu out.
  8. It's a little bit of crazy for me to reflect on my career that it coming to an end. Yes, I JuJu Williams, mediocre wide receiver extraordaire, am on the verge of ending my career in the EFL. When I started I had no idea what to expect from my self or of the entire EFL. There were so many questions that popped in my head as I began my career. How good can I really be if I'm not a super star? Would I enjoy this process? Would I find a team willing to take a chance on me? Would I win anything? Much to my pleasant surprise the answer to those questions all were incredibly positive. I realized that I can be pretty decent. I'm not a franchise player at my position, but I can certainly play a role on a great team and contribute with some big games here and there. I did end up enjoying the process. It was simple and easy enough to do what I needed to do over my career. I was really fortunate to find the Denver Steam. At first the teams that I was on I was indifferent to. But the coach here did a fantastic job and I'm definitely grateful for him and have really enjoyed playing under him. He's top notch for sure. I ended up winning a lot of games. Even won a championship. Those type of things are important to me. JuJu's career was never about himself but rather it was always about trying to win. We did that. I did that. Career accomplished. JuJu out.
  9. JuJu Williams is a big fan of fantasy sports. That's right. Now only am I an avid player myself, but it's also something that I love engaging with in terms of my fanbase. It's always an amazing feeling to know that fans have drafted you or added you to their teams. While I know depending on your league size, I've generally been waiver wire fodder -- I always love hearing from fans when they say things along the lines of "I picked you up this week and you delivered with a touchdown!" Not that I'm trying necessarily for fantasy's sake, but I'm certainly trying nevertheless. I can't imagine some of the superstars in our league and what they go through. Some fans, as passionate as they are, just end up taking things too far. I've heard of players being disrespected in direct messages, tweets and even death threats. I've also seen fans talk trash to their wives. All of that is going a little too far. Am I sorry that you lost your fantasy match-up -- absolutely! I know I get mad when I lose my games. But do we need to resort to threats of violence and vulgar tweets and mentions? I think not. Fantasy has been a huge part of promoting our game and growing our brand to fans. It's here to stay so we should embrace it. And whomever has Ju-Ju on starting in their championship match-up this year -- if you win and have the receipts to prove it, you got a Ju-Ju Denver Steam jersey coming your way. Ju Ju Out.
  10. The Denver Steam experienced another successful season in the prestigious EFL. While not playing as large of role in that success, Steam Wide Receiver is nonetheless pleased with his career and his role on the team. At a recent elementary school event, students were invited to take part in his "Full Steam Ahead" Initiative -- a non-project designed to support scholar-athletes from the most underserved communities in the larger Denver area. Speaking at that even, here's a small excerpt from what Williams had to say: Ju Ju Williams: "I just wanted to share with you all how important school is. Yes, you can love sports. Yes, you can aspire to be a professional player. Yes, you can aspire to want to play in the EFL when you're older. But you have to also learn to love school. Your education is going to be a key part of your journey. Without the right grades, you won't be eligible to play for your high school team. Without playing for your high school team, the opportunity to play at college will be eliminated. Even if you are eligible for high school, without the necessary grades, the ability to play college ball will be placed in jeopardy as well. And without going to college, and earning the necessary degree, your life's choices will be limited. I know school can be hard. But you have to realize that your academics will open any door you want in life -- and doors that are much larger than football. My organization, Full Steam Ahead is going to work to support you on that journey. I believe in you. I just need you all to believe in yourselves."
  11. Steam Nation! Once again it's your boy JuJu back with his monthly reflection for you and you only. I first wanted to always thank you for the support that you have given me since day one. This has been a fantastic home and I'm excited to work towards ending my career here. I also wanted to give a special thanks to my coach for working for the betterment of all of his players here. He's been nothing but supportive and knowledgeable and has built a really great locker room experience. At this point, there's definitely not another team that I'd want to play for. Seasons continue to be full of ups and downs -- which is essentially the life of a professional athlete. There's times when things go well and it feels like you're flying through the season. There's other weeks or practices or games that feel like we're moving slow as molasses. Regardless, I've learned not to get too high or too low and to really work on being even keel. Control the controllables. That's all that you can do. If the game doesn't go as planned, screw it, back to the drawing board. If you don't have a great practice, reflect and do better the next time. If your season doesn't end how you want it to, go back and think about what are your areas of weaknesses that you can improve on. Regardless, always strive to have fun, be a good teammate, and to show love to those who show you love. Ju Ju out for this month.
