Canton, Ohio – The dust settled on the USFL Championship game, with Birmingham Stallion topping Philadelphia stars In an exciting story. But that doesn’t mean it’s time to call it a night.
In fact, we had just started with a live post-game version of “The #1 Ranked Show with RJ Young” on the court at the Tom Benson Hall of Fame.
There were a lot of highlights from the show.
First, Scooby Wright and Boo Scarborough stopped to talk about the big game.
Both players had an impact on the end result. Wright not only had three tackles, but also created the play that essentially froze the game, returning the interception back 46 yards for a touchdown.
“I was jumping out of my pants!” Scarborough said of his reaction to Wright’s selection of the Six. “I just felt like the defense was going to make a play, and then Scooby came up with an objection. I was about to jump off the field.”
