Three Former Wildcats Make XFL Rosters

Kentucky Wildcats will be back on the gridiron before you know it.

Just under two weeks before the revamped XFL kicks off its 2020 season, the league revealed 52-man rosters for all eight teams. Three former Wildcats made the cut. Jon Toth will play center for the D.C. Defenders. Austin MacGinnis will be kicking balls through the uprights for Bob Stoops’ Dallas Renegades. MacGinnis’ number will only be called if Hal Mumme’s offense cannot get wide receiver Jeff Badet into the end zone.

Badet’s speed on the outside makes him a prime candidate to put up big numbers. That’s one big reason why he has been one of the leading hype men in XFL promos. The custom visors also probably play a significant role.

Now that rosters are final, allow me to take this opportunity to announce that Kentucky Sports Radio officially endorses the Dallas Renegades. The blog, the podcasts, even KSBar — we are Renegades through and through.

Dallas kicks off the XFL season Feb. 9 vs. the St. Louis Battlehawks at 5 p.m. ET on ESPN.

    Congratulations guys. Hard work pays off and I’m really proud of you three for not giving up on your Dreams. Now go do some big things and become superstars in that league. The NFL will find talent and heart. Keep grinding.

    If Badet can learn to kill all the drops he could still possibly make the NFL. His talent is there
