The football deities seem to have blessed us with watchable pro football in the spring and several former Beavs are a part of it.

For those of you who just weren’t ready for football to be over, you’re in luck. The Alliance of American Football (a new spring pro league spearheaded by a group of former NFL players, coaches, and executives) kicked off this weekend. This past Saturday saw Steve Spurrier’s Orlando Apollos steamroll the Atlanta Legends 40-6 and former OSU coach Mike Riley lead the San Antonio Commanders to a 15-6 win over the San Diego Fleet.

Sunday afternoon, the action continues with Birmingham hosting Memphis and Arizona hosting Salt Lake.

Here’s a refresher of Oregon State connections in the league as of opening weekend:

Dennis Erickson: head coach, Salt Lake Stallions

Mike Riley: head coach, San Antonio Commanders

Ryan Navarro: long snapper, Memphis Express

Fred Lauina: offensive line, San Antonio Commanders

Richard Mullaney: receiver, Arizona Hotshots

Connor Hamlett: tight end, Arizona Hotshots

Obum Gwacham: linebacker, Arizona Hotshots

Tim Cook: running back, Arizona Hotshots

The league is already picking up some steam in terms of fan support dominating Twitter on Saturday night as well as in the ratings.

So which team are you throwing your support behind this season?

Personally, I’m just glad we get to see Fred Lauina dancing on a national stage again.
