BERLIN, Germany -- Former Cal Lutheran quarterback Kevin Ramary ’13 is having a standout season in his first year for the Berlin Adler of the European Football League (EFL). Earlier this week, Ramay was 23-of-36 for 357 yards and six touchdown passes as the Berlin Adler won its first round playoff game 42-13 against the Schwabisch Hall Unicorns. For the season, Ramay has thrown for 2,892 yards and 25 touchdowns.

Ramay and the Berlin Adler’s run into the playoff is all the more remarkable given the team started the season 0-3. "My experience playing football in Germany started off very rocky. I had a little trouble adjusting to the type of football that is played out here,” said Ramay. “But with some adjustments mentally physically and meshing with my teammates (one of which is the son of Bob Meadows, a professor at CLU) we turned it around and are now just one game away from the German Bowl.”

When asked about some of his experiences in Germany, Ramay noted the opportunity to live abroad as the top one, “Living on your own is one thing at college, but it is different when you are in a different country with some free time every day and are getting paid to do it. My highlights of my time here have been living in the city of Berlin, traveling around Europe, and meeting new people along the way.”

Ramay has been all over Germany including Munich and Hamburg but no matter how far away he is from Cal Lutheran, he still uses aspects he gained as student every day, ”One thing that I learned at CLU that I have brought over here is how to be a leader.”

“I had met countless times with both Coach Clay Richardson and Dr. Bruce Gillies on honing my leadership skills and have been able to use the techniques and ideas they taught me to a great extent over here, and without them I couldn’t have done as well as I have so far.”
