Austin MacGinnis drafted by Dallas Renegades in XFL Draft

University of Kentucky kicking legend Austin MacGinnis heard his name called on Day 2 of the XFL Draft on Wednesday.

MacGinnis was selected by the Dallas Renegades in the first round of Phase 5 of the draft. Phase 5 is the “open” part of the draft after four phases designated to selecting specific positions. Phase 5 was the first opportunity for teams to draft a kicker, and Dallas did not waste any time in landing the former Wildcat.

Dallas is coached by Bob Stoops, brother of Mark Stoops, who has MacGinnis to thank for his current good standing at his job. Dallas has another Kentucky connection on its roster: the Renegades’ first pick in the draft was Jeff Badet, a former UK wide receiver and teammate of MacGinnis under Coach Stoops.

So I guess we’re Dallas Renegades fans now? (Unless the Patriots sign MacGinnis.)

    That’s awesome they get to possibly pay together again. They can get dinner with Cobb and Westry all the time. (Cobb better pick up those checks though.)

    Did I see that Toth was selected as well, I think by DC team?

    Austin Macginnis and Toth fans yes. Mixed feelings on Badet because transfering is pretty much the same as a decommitment. Hope he does well but I believe if a kid thinks we’re not good enough to be here he’ll show it.
