Hotshots down Stallions in AAF action

Hotshots down Stallions in AAF action

Former star Penn State quarterback Christian Hackenberg made his Alliance of American Football league debut this afternoon.

The league consists of eight teams and all of these players are getting recognition and work that they wouldn't otherwise get - so kudos to the AAF for putting this league together.

The drive included Wolford - who threw for 275 yards and four touchdowns - hitting Ross for a 31-yard gain, and Pressley rushing for 25 yards on a play that set up a first-and-goal.

The big question facing the AAF, of course, is whether fans were curious to tune in as a one-time thing and will now tune the league out, or whether it can grow that fan base. Spurrier even threw in a Super Bowl LII callback to close out the first half.

Maybe the most important first to achieve outside of a win was a touchdown, and it didn't take the Hotshots long to find the end zone.

The Express will have their home opener next Saturday night against the Arizona Hotshots. Those 8 AAF teams are: Arizona Hotshots, Atlanta Legends, Birmingham Iron, Memphis Express, Orlando Apollos, Salt Lake Stallions, San Antonio Commanders, San Diego Fleet.

K Nick Folk, still just 34-years-old, drilled 53-yard field goal. Games begin at 2pmEST, and can be viewed on AAF.com, CBS Sports Network, NFL Network, and FuboTv.
