"I started when I was twelve, flag football yeah," Werner said. "Sixth grade there was a classmate throwing around the football, and I started throwing it with him so I got some catching skills."
That continued on to tackle football.
"He asked me to join the team and I fell in love with flag football at the time, then when you turn 15 you automatically go to tackle," Werner said.
He also joked of making the move to America during his high school years.
"Good thing I never looked back and questioned myself," Werner said.
