Blizzard Open Tryout Player Spotlight

February 13th, 2018

The Blizzard invited three players to training camp this week from their open tryout back in October.  Here is a glimpse at their positions, strengths, and thoughts. 

 

Raphael Lawson-Gayle

Lawson-Gayle is a 5’9” 175 lbs. athlete from South Central Los Angeles.  He spent the year playing football at Southwest Minnesota State University and is known for is innate ability to make players miss in small spaces.  Lawson-Gayle plays with a physical prowess and passion, which he compares to retired wide receiver Steve Smith.  With his family being from Jamaica, he listens to reggae music before each game to relax and calm his mind.  Lawson-Gayle is looking forward to playing the sport he loves, “while still being able to have fun with fans and family up close and personal!”

 

Torrie Tyson

Tyson is a Defensive Back coming in to training camp at 6’0” 190 lbs. from Carthage College in Kenosha, Wisconsin.  Tyson’s strength lies not just in the one Defensive Back position, but rather he is versatile and able in multiple positions on the field.  He relates and compares this versatility to Green Bay Packers Safety Haha Clinton-Dix.  Before each game, Tyson has the ritual of kneeling in the end zone and praying. When asked what he is looking forward to most this season, Tyson responded with, “Helping this organization win a championship!”

  

 

Johnathan Green 

Green hails from Milwaukee, Wisconsin, and plays football during the year at Rochester Community College in Minnesota.  He is a 6’3” 280 lbs. Defensive Lineman who, for a big man, uses his quickness and speed as an advantage against his opponents.  Green compares his play to Houston Texans J.J. Watt and also takes the time to pray during every pregame.  Green hopes to continue to develop his skills and to gain experience throughout this season with the Blizzard.
