About

The Alliance of American Football was a AAA (2nd Level) American Football League, which unusually for the time, managed to start the season, although it filed for bankruptcy after 8 of ten weeks, with Orlando Apollos (7-1) and Birmingham Iron (5-3) in the Eastern Conference, and San Antonio Commanders (5-3) and Arizona Hotshots (5-3) in the Western Coference, in Playoff spots.

Its’ place as a AAA Alternative to the National Football League was taken in 2020 by the second incarnation of the XFL. There was also failed attempts in 2020 to start Major League Football and the Freedom Football League. Ian Jones, who was born in Cork, Ireland, was Head Strength & Conditioning Coach for the Salt Lake Stallions in the AAF in 2019.

Ian Jones, born in Cork, was appointed Assistant Strength & Conditioning Coach at the Houston Texans in 2017. He started doing voluntary work, mostly coaching in the GAA while still in College in 2010, where he was Head Strength & Conditioning Coach with Cork GAA (Official) and one other coach, Mark Kilgallon, who is now Head Strength and Conditioning Coach with the AFL’s Sydney Swans, saw potential, and got him an Internship at the University of South Carolina, using his contacts with Craig Fitzgerald, whom he had worked with at Harvard University in the mid-2000s.

He worked 12 Hours a Day at USC, seven days a week, 8 hours each day coaching the Football Team.
[1] After two summers at USC he moved on to London Welsh Rugby Union team, and his first Professional Contract. he was surprised at how low-level the set-up was. They had just been promoted to the Premiership, but the budget was small compared the Colleges in the USA, where Stsdiums can seat 110,000 people and there are massively successful alumni who can fund the College Programmes. He decided to phone Fitzgerald again and tell him it was not working out and secured a contract with Penn State College Football Team.

He stayed for three years at Penn State coaching the University’s Football Team as well as being involved in Coaching 30 other sports during his time there, including the College Rugby Team, and the USA Women’s Rugby Squad which also had s base there. While involved with the USA Women’s Rugby Team he got to go to Canadaon Tour with the, and also travel to Wales, England and the World Cup in france in 2014. . By now Fitzgerald had moved on to become a Coach at the Houston Texans. Jones ended up taking a low level position with the Cleveland Browns in 2016, and from there went on to the Houston Texans in 2017, after Fitzgerald called him up when a position became vacant. [1]

At the Texans a typical day stated at 3 A.M. the S&C Staff train at 3:45 AM, At 6 AM they Preview the Day and set up the Weight Room. At 7 AM they train the 30-or-so Rookies (First Year Players). At 8 AM they have a team meeting and 8:30 AM the S&C staff meet for injury/rehab reports. 9 AM they train the five Long Snappers, Kickers and Punters. 10 AM is full practice – Three Hours Long. At 1 PM until 3 PM the non-Rookies are trained individually, staggerred, before they move off to their own individual training. After that it calms down – they eat, review what needs to be done in the Weightroom, look at data from Practice. at 5 or 6 PM another full team meeting and at 7 PM a Final walk-through for the Day. Once the meetings are finished around 8 or 9 PM, that’s the day done. [1]

From the Texans he took up the position of Head Strength and Conditioning Coach at Salt Lake Stalions, of the Alliance of American Football, a AAA American Football League, the equivalent of Championship in English Soccer, and from July 2019 to July 2020 was Assistant Athletic Director for Sports Performance at Wagner College, Staten Island, New York, a multi-sports NCAA College programme position. In December 2019 he took up the position of Head StrengthConditioning Coach at Rugby United in New York, and also the role of Strength and Conditioning Consultant. From June 2018 to August 2020 he was also Head of Physical Performance of USA Rugby and at the same time Physical Performance Consultant.

In 1976 the National Football League expanded to 28 teams with the addition of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Seattle Seahawks. In between this expansion and the relocation of the St. Louis Cardinals to Phoenix, Arizona in 1988, two Irish-born players, Neil O’Donoghue from Dublin, and John Sinnott from Wexford played in the National Football League. O’Donoghue was drafted by the Buffalo Bills in 1977, and went on to play for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers from 1978 to 1979 and St. Louis Cardinals from 1980 to 1985. Sinnott was drafted by the St. Louis Cardinals in 1978, but cut from the roster in Training Camp, and picked up by the New York Giants, where he was on the Roster from 1980 to 1981, before playing for the Baltimore Colts in 1982.

The Standings and Playoff Results of the NFL (1976-1987) are followed by the Career Statistics and Biographies of the two Irish-born Players in this period, as well as a Video Highlights reel of Neil O’Donoghue playing for the Cardinals and Buccaneers.

Honours: All-American (Auburn 1976).

Biography

Neil O’Donoghue was born in Dublin in 1953 and grew up in Clondalkin, where at the age of 12 he started playing Gaelic Football (GAA) where he excelled, being selected for the Dublin Minor Team which reached the All Ireland Final in 1970, losing to Cork. He switched codes to Soccer, scoring on his debut for Shamrock Rovers in the League of Ireland when he was 18. He played 16 games for Rovers, scoring two goals, and gaining a soccer Scholarship to St. Bernard’s College, in Alabama, the first Irishman ever to gain a Soccer Scholarship to the USA.

After the College Soccer Programme closed down he transfered to Auburn University, winning the starting Kicker position for the Tigers. In 1976 he won All-American Honours for Auburn, who play in the SEC (South Eastern Conference – traditionally the best in US College Football). He was drafted to the NFL (National Football League) in 1977 by the Buffalo Bills, playing five games before being cut from the roster and picked up by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, where he played two year, turning around a 2-26 record in the first two years of the expansion franchise to a 15-17 record.

He then signed for the St. Louis Cardinals in 1980, where he managed to set the record for points scored in a season for the team which stood for 21 years, but will probably be best remembered by the Cardinals (now Arizona Cardinals) fans for lacking clutch kicking skills, most notably missing three Field Goals in a Playoff match against the New York Giants in 1983, including a 19-yard attempt in overtime which would have won the game for St. Louis. On the last day of the season in 1984 he missed what would have been a game-winning Field Goal in the dying seconds which would have secured a Playoff place. After the 1985 season he retired. He continued to play Senior Football Championship Football for Round Towers GAA in Clondalkin during the NFL off-season.

Biography

John Sinnott was born in Wexford, Ireland in 1958, and played High School Football in Denham, Massachusetts, where he was recruited for Brown University Bears of the Ivy League in the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA). His High School Football Coach told hm that he might get injured in his first few weeks playing Football, so he should not concentrate on just Football, as his College Academic Achievement was as important, something which is not all that common these days. [Reference: 2] While at Brown, he played in the most successful Brown University Football Team in 50 years, in 1976 emulating the Iron Men of 1926 in winning their first Ivy League Chamoionship in half a century. [Reference: 8]

After College he was drafted by the St. Louis Cardinals, where he was cut from the roster during training camp. John was subsequently picked up by the New York Giants, and after two years on the squad, he was traded to the Baltimore Colts. There he played in 9 games in 1982, before injuring his back, an injury which still bothers him to this day, and retired from Football. [Reference: 11-12]

Biography

John Sinnott was born in Wexford, Ireland in 1958, and played High School Football in Denham, Massachusetts, where he was recruited for Brown University Bears of the Ivy League in the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA). His High School Football Coach told hm that he might get injured in his first few weeks playing Football, so he should not concentrate on just Football, as his College Academic Achievement was as important, something which is not all that common these days. [Reference: 2] While at Brown, he played in the most successful Brown University Football Team in 50 years, in 1976 emulating the Iron Men of 1926 in winning their first Ivy League Chamoionship in half a century. [Reference: 8]

After College he was drafted by the St. Louis Cardinals, where he was cut from the roster during training camp. John was subsequently picked up by the New York Giants, and after two years on the squad, he was traded to the Baltimore Colts. There he played in 9 games in 1982, before injuring his back, an injury which still bothers him to this day, and retired from Football. [Reference: 2; 3]

About Harness Racing

Harness Racing is Pony & Trap Racing, whereby a Horse and Driver race around a cicuit with the first past the Finish Line the Winner. Standardbred Horses are employed. Pacer is identified by the gait of the horse, with the horses leg moving one side at a time; this is historically the most popular in Ireland, as well as USA, Australia and New Zealand. In Trotter is a two-beat diagonal gait of the horse where the diagonal pairs of legs move forward at the same time with a moment of suspension between each beat. It is tradtionally the most popular in Europe, but is becoming more popular in Ireland. [Reference: 4]
