Arlington Renegades Claim The XFL Championship Overcoming D. C. Defenders

Arlington Renegades

Bob Stoops has become champions once more, this time with the Arlington Renegades. The long-time coach of Oklahoma football was fundamental in securing the team’s XFL Championship on May 13th. They faced a tough challenge in D. C. Defenders who were the best in the league. However, the Renegades secured victory with a 35-26 scoreline at the Alamodome in San Antonio.

All’s Well That Ends Well For The Arlington Renegades

The Arlington Renegades’ regular season was far from impressive with a record of only 4 victories and 6 losses. However, that secured their entry into the Southern Division’s playoffs in the second spot.

Once there, the Arlington Renegades overcame the Houston Roughnecks who had a regular season record of 7-3 during the playoff of the division. Finally, they took the title with a huge upset against the D. C. Defenders, who had an astounding regular season record of 9 wins and only 1 loss.  

Stoops had earlier won Oklahoma the national championship in 2000. This time around, he was all praise for the effort and comeback that his Arlington Renegades team had put together. He gave credit to the players as well as the coaches that assisted him. He explained how everyone stayed together through thick and thin, and that the team clicked into gear at the best time possible during the season.

This was XFL 3.0’s first season’s concluding match. Dwayne Johnson, aka “The Rock”, the co-owner of the league, said that the XFL’s first season has proven that the league is capable of creating the world’s best football league for the spring season. He believes the owner as well as the community of football lovers that band together over the common love of the game can see it through this first season.
