In 2016 a new Towers team will take the field – younger, tougher, ready!
Put together with a mix of experienced players from the Championship teams of 2013 and 2014 and a bulk of new young players, the 2016 Towers Senior team is set to reclaim the National Championship.
From top to bottom the team is lead by coaches with a proven track record of winning. Entering his 5th year, Head Coach and Offensive Coordinator, Peter Herbild (with an impressive W/L record of 47-11 in Denmark) sees a lot of similarities between this team and the 2012-team that established the Towers championship teams: “We have the players and the coaches required to create a Champion, and like in 2012 we have one unit to fix. This time it’s our offense, and we will get that done”.
The Towers offense will have the perfect measuring stick for their progress, as they enjoy the luxury of going up against the best defensive unit in Denmark twice a week. Victor Andersen enjoyed a thoroughly impressive first year as DC for the Towers Senior team, and continued a tradition of excellence on defense that has prevailed since the unit was “fixed” in 2012. Being the most talented and lauded young football mind in Denmark, Victor Andersen is the coach who can take a mighty defense and make it a juggernaut that is more than just difficult to score against. “Through the last 15 years, there have been a lot of great defense’ in Denmark, and I believe Victor is the coach who will create a new benchmark for what a great defense is and what it can accomplish.” Coach Herbild explains.
The team also boasts great position coaches such as Simon Sonnesen who is coming off a JNL championship and QB&WR-guru Anders Skovgren whom is considered one of Denmarks most experienced competence for both positions. The list continues with former Towers greats such as Christian Dinesen, Rasmus Bergholt and others.
The aspiring team will have the best practice facilities in Denmark, and they are eagerly awaiting the opening of the rebuilt Gentofte Stadium later this year. Meanwhile the team will workout together at Gentofte crossfit centre during the pre-season and later they will make a trip abroad for a pre-season game and team building.
A lot to look forward to as a Tower in 2016!
