Former Jacks running back Ja’Quan Gardner continues to make a name for himself in the newly formed Alliance of American Football league.
Gardner made history during the third quarter of tonight’s game between the San Diego Fleet and the San Antonio Commanders, running for an 83-yard touchdown — the longest in AAF history.
“[Gardner] can FLY!” the Fleet wrote on the team Twitter account. “In case you were wondering, [Gardner’s] 83-yard touchdown run in the third quarter was the longest TD from scrimmage in @TheAAF‘s history.”
The Fleet went on the win the game 31-11 in San Diego, advancing to a record of 2-1.
Sports analysts speculate that this new league can become a future developmental league for the NFL, and that if Gardner continues to make plays like the one in the video above, he could find himself on an NFL roster in the near future.
