Recently delisted Richmond forward Ben Lennon is the latest player to try his hand at American Football.

Lennon, who was axed by the Tigers at the end of this season, is hoping to become an American Football punter.

The 22-year-old has been training with Prokick Australia, a punting program which helps Australian players make the transition to Australian Football.

Lennon is hoping to catch the eye of scouts and be offered a scholarship from a US College.

The forward was selected with pick No.12 in the 2013 National Draft, playing 21 senior matches in four seasons.

He played in Richmond's VFL Grand Final loss to Port Melbourne earlier this year and missed a shot after the siren from outside 50 to win the game.
