Weekly Recaps

Week 1 (16-18 April 2022)

Birmingham Stallions opened the 2022 USFL season, the first since 1985, with a 28-24 victory over New Jersey Generals, once owned back in the 1980s by former US President Donald Trump. Despite a lawsuit from the original owners claiming trademark violations, the league went ahead, and the home team Stallions won the first of four opening weekend games played at their Protective Stadium (it was planned for all games to be played at Protective Stadium throught the season as part of the hub model). Other games saw wins for Houston Gamblers (17-12 versus Michigan Panthers), New Orleans Breakers (23-17 versus Philadelphia Stars) and Tampa Bay Bandits (17-3 versus Pittsburgh Maulers). [References: 13-14]

Week 2 (23-25 April 2022)

In the North Division New Jersey Generals improved to 1-1 with their first win of the season in a low-scoring game versus Michigan Panthers (10-6 to the Generals) and Philadelphia Stars likewise got their first win, 30-23 against Pittsburgh Maulers (0-2) in a Pennsylvania derby. The South Division, dominant during week 1, saw Birmingham Stallions make full usage of the home field advantage to move to 2-0 with a 33-28 defeat of Houston Gamblers, while New Orleans Breakers joined them on 2-0 with a huge 34-3 victory over Tampa Bay Bandits. [References: 13-14]

Week 3 (30 April-2 May 2022)

The South Division match-up between Tampa Bay Bandits and Houston Gamblers (both 1-1 coming into the game) was the closest of the weekend with Bandits prevailing 27-26. Birmingham Stallions were the only remaining undefeated team after defeating New Orleans Breakers, who were also undefeated coming into the game, 22-13. The North Division also saw a match-up between the two joint-division leaders (on wins) with New Jersey Generals winning 24-16 versus Philadelphia Stars. The other game between winless Pittsburgh Maulers and Michigan Panthers went the way of the Panthers, 24-0. [References: 13-14]

May 2022 Recap (Weeks 4-7)

Birmingham Stallions made full use of homefield advantage winning all four games at Protective Stadium in May, defeating Tampa Bay Bandits, Phiadelphia Stars, Michigan Panthers and Pittsburgh Maulers on their way to 7-0. Second place in the South Division was occupied by New Orleans Breakers on 5-2 who went 3-1 during May with only a loss to New Jersey Generals spoiling the record which included wins over Houston Gamblers, Michigan Panthers and Pittsburgh Maulers. Tampa Bay Bandits picked up a win over Michigan Panthers to go 3-4 in an otherwise disappointing May for the Florida team. Houston Gamblers lost all four games in May to be left out of playoff contention on 1-6. [References: 13-14]

The North Division saw New Jersey Generals assured of a playoff spot with their six game winning streak to week 7 leaving them on 6-1. Philadelphia Stars were almost assured of a playoff spot also standing on 4-3 as they defeated Michigan Panthers, Tampa Bay Bandits and Houston Gamblers in May. Michigan Panthers lost four in a row as the team from the City of Big Cats were joined on 1-6 by Pittsburgh Maulers who managed their first win with a narrow 21-20 victory over Houston Gamblers to also stand on 1-6 at the end of May. [References: 13-14]

June 2022 Recap (Weeks 8-10)

After narrowly defeating New Orleans Breakers 10-9 to record their eighth successive victory, Birmigham Stallions suffered a big shock in week 9 with a 17-15 loss to Houston Gamblers, only the Gamblers second victory of the season. The Stallions bounced back with a 21-18 triumph over Tampa Bay Bandits on the Final day of the Regular Season to finish 9-1 and capture the South Division title. New Orleans breakers joined the Stallions in the playoffs with a victory over Tampa Bay Bandits in week 9, but suffered a loss to the surging Houston Gamblers in the last week to finish 6-4. Tampa Bay Bandits won 13-3 versus Houston Gamblers in week 9 as the Bandits secured third place in the division with the win. Houston Gamblers finished 3-7 with those two shock victories against playoff-bound Birmigham and New Orleans to put a gloss on what was a disappointing season for the Texas team. [References: 13-14]

The North Division Champions were New Jersey Generals who finished off the regular season with victories over division rivals Pittsburgh Maulers, Michigan Panthers and Philadelphia Stars to complete a nine-game winning streak to end the regular season after that first loss to Birmingham Stallions in week 1. The Generals were joined in the playoffs by Philadelphia Stars who defeated Michigan Panthers and Pittsburgh Maulers either side of the loss to New Jersey in week 9 to finish on 6-4. The battle for the unenviable crown of first draft pick in 2023 went to Pittsburgh Maulers who finished 1-9 after a five game losing streak to end season including a 21-33 defeat to Michigan Panthers who finished 2-8 with the victory. [References: 13-14]

Playoff Preview

New Jersey Generals head into the Playoffs on the back of a nine-game winning streak which saw the Generals finish the regular season 9-1.

The Stallions themselves finished on 9-1 also, with a shock loss to the surprising Houston Gamblers in the penultimate week of the regular season.

A Stars fightback in the 4th Quarter was ended by first Wright III’s interception with 3:03 left on the clock and then C McFarland’s timely interception with 28 seconds left which ended the game.

About the USFL 2022

The United States Football League (USFL) 2022 is a reincarnation of the successful Spring alternative to the National Football League (NFL) which ran from 1983 to 1985 before an unsuccessful bid to move to an autumn season and taking the NFL head-on [See link to USFL 1983-1985 below for more details]. The 2022 version shall be played entirely within a Hub City in Birmingham, Alabama, a model first used by The Spring League (TSL) from 2016 to 2021, before that league went into partnership with Fox Sports and bought out the naming rights and logos of the USFL 1983-1985 and renaming itself USFL for 2022 [See link below for The Spring League for more details] . The USFL 2022 published a 10-game schedule culminating in Semi-Finals and Championship Game between the top two teams in each Division [10].

The Spring League 2020 San Antonio [Reference: 2]


In the opening Week in The Spring League 2020 in San Antonio Alphas lost 0-19 to Blues with QB Shea Patterson throwing for 3 TDs, two of which went to Jovon Durante Cinco. Aviators defeated Jousters 28-0 as DeShaun Amos twice intercepted the ball, returning one for a TD and QB McLeod Bethel-Thompson passed for 2 TDs. In the third game of the day, which was Nationally televised Generals triumphed 33-19 over Conquerors, with Bryan Scott throwing for 3 Tds in his first professional start, and the Generals defense recording 3 Interceptions.

In Week 2, the Aviators won in overtime against the Blues, 23-17, as Wide Receiver Matthew Sexton scored with a walk-off Punt Return in a game televised Nationally on FS1 (Fox Sports 1). The win moved the Aviators to 2-0 as the Blues fell to 1-1. QB JT Barret led the Alphas to their first win of the season as they beat the Conquerors 22-17, dropping the conquerors to 0-2. In the other game, Jousters Kicker Ricky Aguayo had a perfect 5/5 night as the Generals came from behind in the fourth quarter, allowing no Touchdowns in the game and forcing two turnovers in the fourth quarter, leading them to an 18-15 victory as they moved to 2-0 in the standings, and the Jousters dropped to 0-2.

In the third week the Conquerors shocked the Aviators with a 42-19 victory against the undefeated team, giving the Conquerors their first win of the season. The Jousters forfeited their match against the Alphas, due to COVID-19 testing and protocols, and also lack of practice. Alphas were awarded a 2-0 win as per league rules. Quarterback Bryan Scott, led the Generals to the only team undefeated on 3-0 with four Touchdowns and was matched by his own defence who contributed four interceptions as the Generals downed the Blues 42-28 to claim sole ownership of the top spot.

On 17 November 2020, The Spring League made the announcement to cancel the matches for Week 4 due to positive COVID-19 tests. The Championship Game was postponed until 15 December 2020 where the Generals totally dominated the Aviators winning 37-14, with QB Bryan Scott named MVP.

Six teams were announced for The Spring League 2020 in San Antonio, the only 11v11 American Football League other than the National Football League to go ahead despite the COVID-19 Coronavirus Pandemic. Terry Shea, an Irish surname / family name, was named head coach of the Aviators, one of six teams, so possibly an Irish Connection there.

Indoor Football League Regular Season Results 2021 [Reference: 3]


Weeks 1-3 23 April – 8 May 2021

Playing a 3-game schedule between themselves to start the 2021 Indoor Football League schedule in USA, Green Bay Blizzard (Wisconsin) and Massachusetts Pirates both got off to 2-1 Wins-Losses starts while Bismarck Bucks (North Dakota) started 1-1 and expansion franchise Louisville Xtreme got off to an 0-2 start. The Blizzard lost their opening game 36-41 at home to Bismarck, but then won 40-36 at home to Massachusetts before a much easier 49-29 victory over the Xtreme. The Pirates had big wins over both Louisville Xtreme (49-18 on opening day) and 36-18 versus Bismarck Bucks.

Week 4 15-16 May 2021

Bismarck Bucks moved to 2-1 with a win over Green Bay Blizzard, which dropped the Blizzard to 2-2. Meanwhile, most of the rest of the League played their opening games. Iowa Barnstormers defeated Sioux Falls Storm 56-36, early indication that the Storm’s long-standing record of Bowl wins and appearances may be threatened in 2021. Making their debut were Frisco Fighters, from Texas, who triumphed in their first ever game 36-33 at Spokane Shock of Washington State, one of the oldest of the Arena Indoor Football teams.


For the 2021 season the Indoor Football League added the Louisville Xtreme and Northern Arizona Wranglers. The Indoor Football League is a AAA American Football League played Reduced Numbers (8v8) Arena Indoor American Football primarily in the American Mid-West & West. Previously AA, it has since the demise of the AAA Arena Football League after the 2019 season, it has expanded its Geographic Reach, and has taken the AFL’s position as the AAA League in Indoor/Arena Football. This version of American Football is most popular in Mexico, hence names like Tucson Sugar Skulls. LEXFA (Liga Extrema de Futbol Arena) in Mexico is the Major League (and also one of four Mexican Majors)
