Last week, members of the University of Central Florida and Penn State University were in Dublin to finalise their plans for the Croke Park Classic game which sees the two sides meet on August 30th.

Croke Park Classic April Visit and Media Day

While they were over, former Dublin footballer, and huge American Football fan Tomás "Mossy" Quinn and Monaghan's Colin Walshe (pic above) stopped by GAA headquarters to check out how the stadium will look with the American Football markings and to get their hands on the Dan Rooney trophy, which will be awarded to the winner of the Croke Park Classic.

Tomas and Colin noted how that all they need to play a game is a pair of boots, a jersey and some shorts and socks, so Matt Craig of the Irish American Football Association decided to challenge the guys (and JOE.ie's Eric Lalor) to see how long it would take them to get changed into an American Football uniform.
