The USIU-Africa American football team famously known as ‘Panthers’ received new kits on Friday, July 26, 2019 through a donation from the Kenya Federation of American football (KFAF). The new jerseys were officially unveiled on Wednesday, July 31, where the team showcased their prowess in the game through a light training at the Rugby Pitch. The new uniforms mark the start of the long-awaited journey for the team as they prepare for the American football league that is set to start in September 2019.
The team which was started in September 2017 comprises of 22 players, five seniors, six juniors, seven sophomores and four freshmen. The team has training sessions every evening on Tuesday and Thursday.
The team continues to recruit more players in readiness for the league in September and encourage interested participants to join the team during their training sessions for recruitment.
The Panthers will now focus on having the team better equipped and prepared to compete in the international arena.
