Louis Hedley, a former AFL player from Western Australia, made his debut for the Miami Hurricanes against the Florida Gators during a preseason game on Sunday.

The 26-year-old Hedley previously played football in Australia before moving to the US in 2017 and had never seen an American football game.

He wears number 94 while playing for Miami, the same number that Dwayne & # 39; The Rock & # 39; Johnson wore when he played for the Hurricanes before becoming a wrestler and movie star.

Hedley is the newest Australian who has left his mark on football in the United States, following Jarryd Hayne, Valentine Holmes and Michael Dickson.

The punter stands at 6ft4 and weighs 98kg – and sports a distinctive mustache and proudly shows off its heavily tattooed arms.

When his signing for Miami was announced Sport illustrated Hedley the & # 39; coolest looking punter ever & # 39; called.

Although it was his appearance that first caught the attention of America, it was how the 25-year-old played on the field during the game that made a lasting impression after getting his first kick under pressure for 43 yards.

Fans went to Twitter to show how impressed they were with Hedley's game.

& # 39; Now the show starts. It is Lou Hedley time, America, & one person tweet.

Hedley is not the only Australian who makes his debut in the world of American football.

Another Australian who is making his college debut in the new season is the former Richmond Tigers star Ben Griffiths.

The 27-year-old withdrew from the AFL at the start of the 2018 season after a series of injuries and concussions.

The USC Trojans needed punter for the 2019 season and Griffiths was announced in December 2018 as a response from the team.

Griffiths, who turns 28 in September, is one of the oldest players to make their debut for the club, according to The Athletic.

Mitch Wishnowsky debuted on Tuesday in the NFL for the San Francisco 49ers during a season game.

The 27-year-old made an impressive start and made a huge hit against Broncos kick-returner Devontae Jackson.

That was until Wishnowsky lowered his shoulder and drove into Jackson, driving him into the grass in a thumping suit.

& # 39; That's what happens if you are a former Aussie Rules footballer, & # 39; said a commentator.

In 2015, it was announced that NRL player Jarryd Hayne would play for the San Francisco 49ers, before returning to Australia.

Another Australian player entering the field is former NRL Cronulla Sharks player Valentine Holmes, who keeps an eye on everyone.

The 25-year-old jumped to the New York Jets of the NFL in April after he signed a one-year contract with the club.

His signature came as part of a competition initiative called the NFL International Player Pathway Program.

Earlier this month, he played in a pre-season game after making only three runs and making only a total of three yards.
