By Europe’s Elite
In 2021 the U19 Amsterdam Panthers football team were out to prove that they were one of the best. Week in and week out this small team from Amsterdam, proved to Europe that they were one of the best teams around. This team traveled throughout the Netherlands, Belgium, and France dominating every opponent that they faced. With a team so dominant, we natrually began to do more research on some of their top players. One player that stood out among the rest was class of 2023 linebacker Yhemmairo van Es.
Playing with the Amterdam Panthers this year taught me that even if people talk down on you, that you should be the best version of yourself, step up and take what is yours. We went from being overlooked underdogs to currently being ranked the #8 u19 team to compete this season and I think that’s a huge accomplishment.
