The Wasa Royals, Finnish Maple League semifinalists in 2020, have re-sign one of their best players, quarterback Brandon Gwinner.
Gwinner had a remarkable year with the Royals, driving the group to the elimination round. He at that point went directly from the end of the season games in Finland to Poland where he guided the Bialystok Lowlanders to a compartment in the Polish title game.
The 23 year old, 6’3″, 220 pound from Morrisville State, was brought in to the Lowlanders after the starter needed to leave for individual reasons.
Playing for the Royals in Finland’s Maple League, he was the fourth driving passer in the abbreviated season in Finland tossing for 732 yards and seven scores in five games however he was the fifth driving rusher with 364 yards on 68 conveys and scored eight scores on the ground.
In 2019, he played for the Brisbane Rhinos in Australia where he tossed for more than 30 scores and was named group MVP. He began the 2020 season with the Yeditepe Eagles of the Turkish League of American Football and figured out how to play and dominate one match before the Covid pandemic shut down the season. Gwinner burned through four seasons at Morrisville State prior to joining the Rhinos. At Morrisville, he tossed for 4,215 yards and 34 scores in 26 games.
