Mountaineers in the Pros

Watch: Leddie Brown Explodes for Big Game to Win XFL Championship



Leddie Brown in XFL Championship Game

West Virginia fans have heard this before. Leddie Brown explodes for a big performance in a big game.

After starting off the season failing to make the final roster of one XFL team, ironically coached by another former Mountaineer, Brown closed the year off by scoring two touchdowns in the XFL Championship Game. The WVU product found the end zone as both a receiver and on the ground for the Arlington Renegades.

Brown actually became the first and only player to score a receiving and rushing touchdown in the same XFL game throughout the entire 2023 season.

Overall, the 24-year-old Philadelphia, Pennsylvania native accounted for 75 total yards in the game. He ran for 32 yards off nine carries and also caught two balls for 43 yards, including taking a short reception 30 yards for a score.

Brown, who was unable to find NFL success during his stint with the Los Angeles Chargers after going undrafted in 2022, was at least able to finally show what he can do in the XFL.

Will this performance open up any NFL eyes to give Brown another opportunity? Only time will tell. But no matter what happens, one thing is clear – Leddie Brown is an XFL champion.

Brown talked about continuing to chase his professional football dreams for his late father while being interviewed during the game.
