The Limburg Shotguns were established in the summer of 2008. After a succesfull stint of American Football by the Limburg Eagles about a decade before, the passion for the game demanded a rebirth of the program. With some dedication and a combination of experience and young blood we started working on the road again, a road that has not proven to be easy, but we walk it with pride. Since 2014 we are located in Beringen, and have received immense support of the city. With the addition of a U19 squad in 2015 the program has been growing strongly. We will keep building and expanding our team so that we may be victorious on the field of battle!
The offense, the team with control of the oval-shaped football, attempts to advance down the field by running with or passing the ball, while the team without control of the ball, the defense, aims to stop their advance and take control of the ball for themselves.
The offense must advance at least ten yards in four downs, or plays, or else they turn over the football to the opposing team; if they succeed, they are given a new set of four downs. Points are primarily scored by advancing the ball into the opposing team's end zone for a touchdown or kicking the ball through the opponent's goalposts for a field goal.
The team with the most points at the end of a game wins.
Our team consists of players from all ages and backgrounds. We have members with different nationalities from Belgian to American. We are always looking for new players!
