USFL Mountaineer Update: Week 1

The USFL made its debut this past weekend, giving some former Mountaineers the chance to take the field. Five former Mountaineers are currently on three different USFL rosters. After every week, we will take a look at each Mountaineer’s performance.

Dravon Askew-Henry, S: New Jersey Generals

Dravon Askew-Henry got the start at safety on Saturday as his Generals took on the Birmingham Stallions to kick off the season. It was a close back-and-forth game the whole way through. The game came down to a potential goal-line stand by the Generals, but Stallions quarterback J’Mar Smith ran in for the game-winning touchdown. Askew-Henry finished the game with two solo tackles.

Mike Brown, OG: New Jersey Generals

Mike Brown was on the other side of the New Jersey Generals, starting at right guard. Brown held his own and helped the unit keep a clean pocket for quarterback Luis Perez on the first play as he launched a 49-yard bomb. The Generals pounded the rock and converted a fourth-and-one to get to the three yard line. The next play was a three-yard touchdown pass. After the first series, however, Brown did not see the field again on offense. He was exclusive to special teams after that.

Marquis Lucas, OG: New Orleans Breakers

Marquis Lucas played every snap at right guard in this game and helped pave the way for a dominant rushing performance by the Breakers. The Breakers ran for a total of 171 yards on 4.4 yards per carry. The Breakers also did not give up a single sack to the Philadelphia Stars.

Keith Washington II, CB: New Orleans Breakers

Keith Washington II was selected by the breakers with the eighth pick in the second round of the USFL Supplemental draft. Washington played the whole game and tallied two tackles and broke up a pass. The Breakers struggled to cover in the passing game, allowing 202 yards and a 69.4 completion rating by Stars quarterback Bryan Scott.

Adam Shuler, EDGE/DE: Tampa Bay Bandits

Former Mountaineer and Florida Gator Adam Shuler did not play in the Bandits’ convincing win over the Pittsburgh Maulers. The Bandits won 17-3, and gave no room for the Maulers to gain any momentum.
