Japanese Players to Compete in American Bowl
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers add a little international flavor to their roster just in time for their trip to Japan when the Bucs face the New York Jets in the American Bowl on August 2nd. Linebacker Shinzo Yamada, who has agreed to a contract with the Bucs, will compete against former teammate Yoshinobu Imoto. Yamada and wide receiver Imoto played together with the Amserdam Admirals in the NFL Europe League this past season. "Japanese players have made great strides in the NFL Europe League," said NFL Commissioner Paul Tagliabue. "It is exciting to see those players have a chance to further their development by competing in NFL training camps." Yamada attended college at Kwansei-Gakuin University and earned the College All-Star game Most Valuable Player Award. Kwansei-Gakuin also won Japan's national title during Yamada's sophomore season. You may have seen Yamada before. Last season, he was in training camp with the New York Dragons of the Arena Football League, and in 2001, he played for the Memphis Maniax of the XFL. Yamada will report to the Buccaneers training camp at Disney's Wide World of Sports Complex in Orlando on Friday.
