The Limburg Shotguns were created in 2008, with some of the veterans from the well known team Limburg had many years ago, the Limburg Eagles.
After our first year of practice we had put together a team that we thought fit of making something happen. All starts are rough, and it wasn't any different for us! We did manage to win our first game, in our first season appearance. The first team we beat were the Leuven Lions. By doing this the FAFL had soon noticed that we were taking stuff seriously, most teams get their first win after a couple seasons!
Up untill the year 2013 we had our home field at Baekeland Leopoldsburg. We now have learned that to gain access to a larger potential player base, we had to move to a better location. So we started searching and eventually we came to a concensus with the city of Lummen. We do believe that this location will bring a bright future to our team, for it is very accessable and close to larger cities such as Hasselt, Sint-Truiden and Genk!
Our time is now!
Our training camp to prepare for the 2015 season has been completed! The players had a good mix of fun and learning, as did the coaches. We would like to thank the Maastricht Wildcats and the people at Bloso Herentals for the great accomodation and atmosphere. The final test will be this saturday against the Vampires from Aachen in Germany. Fans, come out and show your colours!
Shotguns on 3!
Last night wasn't the best evening for Peyton Manning. Some media even report that this performance rivals the loss to the Jets in 2003. Manning has now nine playoff appearances where it was just one game & out. The Colts offensive line did a very good job keeping Andrew Luck clean without any sacks or hits. The Colts will face the Patriots in the AFC championship game next sunday at 6:40pm!
We have a diverse group of players consisting of American and Belgian players. Fast, big, strong or tall? In football we can use you all! If you are interested to become a part of our Shotgun Family, do not hesitate to contact us!
