Football World Championship Has NMU Connection

The World Championship of American Football is being played right now in Austria.
Yes, there is such a thing — more than 50 countries around the world have organized leagues and the world championship tournament has been around since 1999.
A player familiar to many area fans is part of Team USA.
Former Northern Michigan University defensive tackle D.J. Catalano was an All–GLIAC honorable mention choice last year.
He\’s parlayed that into a pro contract with the UFL and a berth on the U.S. national team.
The Americans played their final group stage game overnight last night, a 17–7 win over Mexico.
The U.S. team has won its group with a 3–0 record, placing them in the gold medal game Saturday night against Canada.
