For those of you who aren’t aware, our Landscape Architect Chris Jackson plays American Football. Chris has been playing since he was at University and now plays for the Colchester Gladiators www.colchestergladiators.com
The Gladiators have just completed a fantastic season culminating with a trip to The John Charles Stadium in Leeds to take on the Gateshead Senators in the British American Football Association National Division final. The Gladiators won 33 – 13 to complete a perfect 2013 season, winning all 13 games and bringing a National Title back to Colchester for the first time in 25 years. American football is a growing sport in the UK, but has been established here for some time, this is the Gladiators 30th Anniversary Year, making the National League title even more special. Chris (#25) has had a great season setting two club records and scoring over 20 TDs from his position at Slot Receiver and Running Back.
