Over the last few weeks, football has been played in Austria at both the men’s and youth levels. Last weekend we watched as the Dacia Vienna Vikings and the Graz Giants wrapped the AFL “Best of 5” championship series. Now all eyes are on the rising youth athletes within Austria. Nearly every young athlete within the country has anticipated the season in 2020, thankfully it is finally here.
For those of you who do not know, football in Austria this year has been very “unique” to say the least. For example, not every team competed in Austria’s AFL season. Which means many athletes will not have a season in 2020. There are tons of great athletes in Austria that are under the age of 20, but many of those athletes are not playing this year. Therefore our scouts and analyst could not consider some athletes for this “watch” list. Thanks to our lead scout in Austria Anton W. we have designed this list only to highlight young athletes who are competing in the U18 season in Austria. This is in no way a ranking chart. Simply a list that identifies some top athlete’s within the country who are exciting to watch.
