Just before the 2023 season of the European League of Football starts, Jonas Hagerup (1995) joins the franchise, thus being the last European addition to the squad.
The Offensive Line (OL) began his American football adventure with the Oslo Vikings Junior team. In 2012 he won the Junior National Championship after having a perfect season, being awarded the Rookie of the Year award. Two years later, the Norwegian went to the United States to play for the City College of San Francisco.
Finishing his journey in Northern California, he returned to the team that saw him grow. With the Vikings, they were proclaimed champions for two consecutive years (2015 and 2016), with Jonas being the MVP. After a brief stint in Germany, the player signed for the Leipzig Kings in 2021 and the following year for the ELF’s Wroclaw Panthers.
Hagerup valued his entry into the franchise in Spanish: “I’m very excited for the opportunity to be a Dragon, to meet with Coach Nuño, and achieve the team’s goals. I want to do my best to have the best offensive line in Europe!”.
