This past weekend was a very interesting one for football fans with not one but two spring leagues playing at the same time.
The XFL has only one week of regular season play remaining. But the USFL kicked off their second season. Let’s take a look at how some former UCF Knights did this week:
Terrence Plummer — LB Orlando Guardians
Plummer recorded 10 tackles — three solo and seven assisted — in the Guardians’ 25-23 loss to the San Antonio Brahmas.
With his performance, Plummer now has recorded a total of 51 tackles — 25 solo and 26 assists — which is seventh in the league. He also has two sacks and four tackles for loss.

Rannell Hall — CB Arlington Renegades
In the Renegades' 28-26 loss to the D.C. Defenders, Hall had two catches for 19 yards and returned four kickoffs for 94 yards.
Hall brought his season total to seven catches for 63 yards and 10 kickoff returns for 201 yards, the most on the team.

Marlon Williams — WR Birmingham Stallions
USFL Week 1 got off to a very sad start for UCF alumni, as Marlon Williams recorded three catches for 23 yards but tore his Achilles in the first half.
He will miss the rest of the season.
Williams was on the verge of tears as he spoke with Brock Huard after the injury was confirmed:
