ABOUT NICKEL & DIME
The nickel and dime formations were both coined with money in mind. The dime adds a sixth defensive back (DB) to the formation. Two nickels make a dime.
Nickel & Dime is my personal blog about playing American Football in Austria and Europe. Here I want to share with you experiences and personal moments from a player's perspective.

Hi, I'm Ugochukwu aka Ugo. I am 22 years old and born in Nigeria. I came to Vienna as child, so basically I've been here all my life
In 2015 I have graduated, at HTL Leberstraße with main emphasis on building construction and continued with studying Architecture at the Technical University in Vienna.
I fell in love with this sport mainly because I like the physical & tactical aspects of the game.
I started playing American Football in 2010 as a middle linebacker and since 2015 I have been part of the first team of the Dacia Vikings Vienna.
In 2016 I started my coaching career as Linebacker Coach for the U15 of the Dacia Vikings. In all those years I was nominated for the U19 and Men's Nationalteam of Austria.
