The players selected in today’s draft join the Guardians’ pool of drafted players from the XFL Draft held on October 15-16.

With the 6th pick in the 1st round of the XFL supplemental draft, the New York Guardians selected Antonio Morrison, a linebacker from the University of Florida. The 6’1 240-lb linebacker was selected in the 4th round of the 2016 NFL Draft by the Indianapolis Colts and went on to spend three years in the NFL with the Colts and Packers.

In the 2nd round, the New York Guardians selected Justin Vogel, a punter from the University of Miami. The Florida native appeared in 16 games for the Green Bay Packers in 2017, averaging more than 44 yards per punt.

Brian Wallace was selected by the Guardians with the 6th pick in the 3rd round of the supplemental draft.  The 6’5, 320-lb offensive tackle was excellent in protection for the University of Arkansas allowing only three sacks in 411 passing snaps throughout his senior year. The former Razorback also totaled a career-high of 807 snaps during that same year.

With the 3rd pick of the 4th round, the Guardians selected former Akron cornerback, Bryce Jones. Jones transferred from Boston College and went on to lead the team in passes defended (9), while also amassing 50 total tackles in 12 games during his senior year. At 6’0, 180-lbs, Jones produced more than 1,300 yards and 12 touchdowns as a quarterback at Cleveland Heights High School.

A.J. Hendy, a defensive back from the University of Maryland was selected by the Guardians with the 5th pick of the 5th round. At 6’1 and 201-lbs, Hendy has appeared in 16 preseason NFL games since 2016, compiling 38 tackles and one interception. In four years at Maryland, Hendy produced 142 total tackles with a career-high of 76 during his senior season.

In the 6th round, Garrett Hudson was selected by the Guardians with the 3rd pick. The first of two tight ends selected by the Guardians was named to the First-Team All-CAA during his senior year at Richmond. The 6’4, 240-lb tight end compiled more than 1000 yards on 65 catches to go with nine touchdowns during his three-year college career.

The second tight end taken by the Guardians was 6’3, 250-lb Keenan Brown out of Texas State. The 4th pick of the 7th round was named a First-Team All American by Pro Football Focus despite coming out of high school as a wide receiver. Brown led the Sun Belt conference with 51 catches and 577 yards from the tight end position.

With the 3rd pick in the 8th round, Damon Sheehy-Guiseppi was selected by the New York Guardians. Sheehy-Guiseppi made a name for himself with an 86 yard punt return for the Cleveland Browns in preseason action. Sheehy-Guiseppi was named first-team NJCAA All-American in 2016 after compiling 1,278 kick return yards and four touchdowns.

A positional need was filled with the Guardians 9th and final pick of the 2019 supplemental draft.

XFL Launches Football Advisory Network

XFL Football Advisory Network

Stamford, Conn., Nov. 18, 2019 – Today the XFL officially kicks off the Football Advisory Network (F.A.N.) — a digital community that gives football fans who love the sport an interactive platform to share their feedback and have their opinions heard on all aspects of America’s #1 game and the new league.

Through participation in surveys, polls, and discussions on a variety of on-and off-the-field topics, members of the F.A.N. community will help the XFL design its fan experience and shape its game. Football fans can visit xfl.com/football-advisory-network to enroll, join the conversations and learn more.

“We love the game of football and we want what our fans want,” said Jeffrey Pollack, XFL President and COO. “The XFL is a league that listens, and the Football Advisory Network is an important platform that enables our direct connection to fans who share our love of football. This national panel will help us listen and learn from football fans in each of our eight markets and across the country.”

In addition to participating in discussions and sharing opinions, members of the F.A.N. community will have exclusive access to special content, giveaways, events and more.

Over the past four weeks, founding XFL Season Ticket Members have already started to participate in the F.A.N. and identify key areas of the game they want the league to focus on, including ticket affordability, seat value, and on-field game day experiences. In one poll question asking “If you were named commissioner of a professional football league tomorrow, would you change anything about the game or fan experience,” 90 percent of respondents said yes and, specifically, 54 percent of fans said they would make changes to the rules of the game and the in-stadium experience.
