John Harlaown-Keys a beast at defensive tackle

A great-grandson of Chrono Harlaown and a distant descendant of Fate Testarossa, defensive tackle John Harlaown-Keys is a man with a plan. The  6'4", 257-lb beast out of Launceston, Tasmania may be diminutive in terms of weight, but he makes up for it in a big way with plenty of hitting power. Harlaown-Keys's strength is his run stopping ability, and with the Leafa College Spirit Gridiron Team known for its run-stopping, he's sure to be a nice fit alongside fellow recruit Kieran Hyakuya.

"Coach Harding told me during my official visit, 'Johnno, mate, you're gonna love the programme here, it's world-class, you got some of the finest sports scientists from the AIS assisting, you'll improve your conditioning over the winter and you're be a beast by the time next spring rolls around, I promise you, but only if you work hard,'" said Harlaown-Keys after class at Brooks High School. "I believed him.

"Kieran's a good mate of mine. We do a lot of power lifting over the winter and even after the season is over we move these big boulders we like to call mini-mountains. Essentially, we want to emulate moving mountains and making waves, figuratively, of course, and all of that ambition has seen us sign with the best griddy team in the world.

"So I am looking forward to this challenge and making my old man Chrono proud because he'd approve of this move, as well as Aunty Fate, who I never met in my lifetime, but whose memory I continue to cherish and pay tribute to every time I get on the pitch. I'm ready to do my best and commit to the success of the Leafa Boys next year."
