On July 16, Jackson State University will host a HBCU showcase for the XFL.
JSU will be one of six showcases the league has planned to scout for talent.
“These showcases are an incredible opportunity for passionate players to show up and ball out for a chance to join the XFL,”owner Dewayne Johnson said in a press release. “The XFL is all about being at the intersection of dreams and opportunity. It is our goal to make football more accessible to more players, and our highly experienced team of coaches and personnel directors are ready to help make these professional football dreams come true. The door is open for elite talent across the country to join the XFL – including my home state of Hawaii. I’m looking forward to seeing these players bringing their best and leaving it all out on the field.”
The league is owned by Dewayne “The Rock” Johnson who purchased it in 2020.
This will be a invitation only showcase which is closed to the public.See a typo? Report it here.
