With the completion of Week 10, the 2023 XFL regular season now officially come to an end. After not finishing the season in 2020 due to COVID, football fans will finally get to see what happens in the XFL playoffs.
Before we get ready to watch the league’s four best teams battle, let’s take a look at how some former UCF Knights did this week, as well as this entire season.
Terrence Plummer — Orlando Guardians
Plummer recorded five tackles, two solo and three assisted, in the Guardians’ 53-28 loss to the St. Louis Battlehawks.
Plummer, the Guardians’ captain, was a bright spot on the league’s worst team, who have ended their inaugural season with a 1-9 record. He put together very consistent performances, where it seemed like he was everywhere on the field. He recorded a total of 56 tackles, which is enough for him to finish the season with the seventh-most tackles in the league. Of those 56 tackles, 27 of them were solo tackles, four of them were for a loss and two of them were sacks.
Rannell Hall — Arlington Renegades
In the Renegades’ 25-9 loss to the Houston Roughnecks, Hall recorded three catches for 19 yards. He also returned the Renegades’ lone punt for six yards, as well as six kickoffs for a total of 92 yards.
Despite the loss and a record of 4-6, the Renegades managed to clinch the South Division’s second playoff spot. Hall and the rest of the team will take on the Roughnecks again in the semifinals.

Hall had a late start to the season due to being listed as inactive for the first four weeks of the season. While he was used sparingly as a receiver, catching 10 passes for 82 yards, he shined on special teams.
Hall began splitting time as a kick returner with other players the Renegades, but he eventually broke out and became the team’s most called-upon kick returner. He returned 16 kickoffs for a total of 293 yards, which is the 10th most out of all XFL kick returners.
Hall was also occasionally used as a punt returner and running back. He returned two punts for a total of 23 yards and had two rushing attempts for a total of 21 yards.
Killins was drafted by the Houston Roughnecks before being moved over to the Renegades before the start of the season. He appeared in four games, rushing for three yards off of seven attempts. He also caught one pass for one yard and returned 10 kickoffs for a total of 195 yards.
He would be released by the team on March 13th.
McCray was a member of the San Antonio Bramahs until he was released by the team on April 3rd. He never appeared in a game, being listed as inactive until his release.
He has, however, landed with the Memphis Showboats of the USFL. You can find out more about Jordan and the other UCF Knights in that league here.
