The XFL was in St. Louis today, hosting nearly 150 players in a showcase event for coaching staff and front office members to evaluate potential talent for their upcoming season.
Among those in attendance were running back Trent Richardson and quarterback Connor Cook. Former Missouri Tigers Eric Beisel, Jordan Harold, Brandon Lee, Jacquies Smith, Josh Augusta, La’Damian Washington, Kendial Lawrence, and Tyler Howell also participated in the event.
“It was invite only and then we asked some more guys to come out after we set the first roster,” St. Louis Head Coach Jonathan Hayes said. “Everyone’s going to be in the pool for the draft and that’s part of it. In saying that, you still have to do your due dilligence on all these players and make sure you understand which one of them is going to fit us the best.”
The XFL will kickoff on February 8, 2020.
