All Football, All Day


A wind speed of 267.5 km/hour (166 miles/hour) was recorded on January 1, 1998 at the Jungfraujoch's Sphinx Observatory. This is the highest wind speed ever recorded in Switzerland.

The breeze wasn't that bad yesterday at the Sphinx.

We have our season opener this Sunday at home against the Basel Meanmachine, so today was a football intensive Wednesday.

My day was spent breaking down the Basel vs. Luzern game DVD that I took last Sunday at their season opener. Basel looks as good on the DVD as they did live, we have our hands full for sure.

I was able to come up with a solid scouting report and thanks to the wonders of the internet was able to send it and a copy of the Basel-Luzern game video to all of our players.

U-16 Practice Indoors

Daniel Gygax, who just returned from his stint in the Swiss Army, is seen here coaching the U-16 squad tonight. He showed a lot of passion for the game and the kids. He will continue to be a very positive influence on the team I'm sure.

Daniel is also a running back on the Senior team giving us some much needed depth at that position.

Kickoff Return

After the 90 minute U-16 practice indoors, it was time to head across Thun for our first weekday Senior team practice outdoors!

We had a great turnout and, after first reviewing the game plan with the team, enjoyed a very spirited two hour practice as all of the Tigers want to get our season finally started after several weeks of practice.

It was a GREAT day of American football indeed!!!
