American Football: A RUSH JOB FOR AHMAAD.

RUNNING back Ahmaad Galloway has always been a man in a rush.

But he admits the final few days of the Scottish Claymores' training camp in Tampa have been hectic.

Galloway has not played a full game for 18 months and he insists the Claymores' first fixture against Berlin Thunder on April 4 cannot come quickly enough.

The24-year--old rusher is rated so highly by his NFL team,Denver Broncos,that they selected him in the seventh round of the draft last year even though he had been out with a knee injury for 12months.

They put him on injured reserve but now expect him to rediscover his sparkle in Europe.

Galloway said: 'I got hurt the third game of my senior year at college in 2002and I missed the rest of that year and all last year.'

Now he wants to make his own mark but, just to get on the field and play his first game on April 4, will be a landmark.

He said: 'It's going to be big. Just being out here was very big for me. The Claymores have done a good job of pressing me and getting me used to being back out there.

'When that first game comes around, it's going to be really exciting.

'It's a challenge I'm going into a spot where a lot of good players have been there before me for Denver.'
