BIRMINGHAM, Ala. — Heading into the final regular-season weekend and then the playoffs in Canton, Ohio, the United States Football League today announced the inaugural All-USFL Team. From a league of nearly 400 players, 25 were selected (for 27 positions) because of their consistently exceptional on-field play that inspired millions of football fans across America and around the world.

The playoff-bound New Orleans Saints sent six players to the All-USFL team, second only to the New Jersey Generals with seven. Breakers quarterback Kyle Sloter, who leads the league in passing yardage with 1,798, tops the 11-position all-league offensive team.

The former Southern Miss Golden Eagle was twice named Offensive Player of the Week during the season.

Other Breakers honored, include tight end Sal Cannella and center Jared Thomas on offense, and defensive end Davin Bellamy, defensive tackle Reggie Howard, Jr., and linebacker Jerod Fernandez.

“The quality of football has been outstanding during our first USFL season,” said Daryl Johnston, USFL Executive Vice President of Football Operations. “There were a lot of players worthy of recognition, so our coaches had multiple tough decisions to help select these players.

“We’re grateful for their belief in our mission in the USFL and proud to honor their commitment to excellence day in and day out in our inaugural season,” he continued. “They represent the best of our players still chasing their dreams and still playing the game they love, the ultimate team sport, the great game of football.”
