Jose Rafael Ariza Paredes (Reus, Catalonia, Spain. 1997) renews with the Barcelona Dragons to play his second season with the Catalan entity in the European League of Football.
The Offensive Lineman (OL) reinforces the offensive line to protect Conor Miller and open spaces for the team’s running game. The ‘Giant’ was formed at the Reus Imperials, where he would manage to be runner-up in the Spanish Serie A in 2017. The following year, he would once again stay at the gates of a domestic championship; this time with the Vysocina Gladiators of the Czech league.
However, the player from Reus didn’t give up and the following season he signed with the Ravensburg Razorbacks, of the GFL2 (German Football League 2), where he would finally lift the champions trophy, becoming a key player in the rise of the Germans.
Ariza faces this season with great desire and ambition: “There is a job to finish and a dream to fulfill. I think we have a team to achieve it“, said the Catalan.
