Week 3 of the 2020 XFL season is in the books, and while our local Seattle Dragons were unable to get a second straight victory, we did see a few former Seahawks get on the stat sheet across the league. One very familiar face found himself in the end zone for the first time this year. As we aim to do throughout the season, here’s a brief rundown of notable former ‘Hawks and how they fared over the weekend.

Keenan Reynolds - Seattle Dragons

After getting a touchdown last week, Reynolds was held out of the end zone this time around. He still had four catches for 37 yards on seven targets, which is impressive given who the quarterback is.

Marcell Frazier - Seattle Dragons

As written up by our own Tyler Alsin, Frazier has played like someone who’s going to get an NFL call-up soon. His strip-sack and fumble recovery on Landry Jones was one of the few highlights of a dismal 2nd half for the Dragons.

Jazz Ferguson - Dallas Renegades

Ahhhh you didn’t think I’d forget about Jazz, did you? A popular preseason and training camp star, Ferguson didn’t stick with the Seahawks (and neither did Reynolds, obviously). Ferguson didn’t have any NFL playing time in 2019, and was seemingly a healthy scratch last week for Dallas (unless his “probable” game status was bogus). He played against Seattle in his return to CenturyLink Field, catching two passes for 19 yards. One of those catches was a successful third down conversion that led to Dallas’ tying touchdown.

Christine Michael - St. Louis Battlehawks

Week 1 was a disaster for C-Mike, Week 2 was a slight improvement, Week 3 was his best day as a Battlehawk. How do you end your first drive in your home debut? With a powerful touchdown run.

Michael only had 44 yards on 13 carries but that touchdown is by far his best play in the XFL through three weeks.

Terence Garvin - St. Louis Battlehawks

Garvin had three solo tackles and four assisted in St. Louis’ electrifying home win over the pathetic New York Guardians. The former Seahawks linebacker was known mostly for special teams in the NFL but has found a spot in the XFL getting regular snaps.

Justin Stockton - New York Guardians

Pure preseason filler in 2018, the former Texas Tech running back fumbled a kickoff but did have 41 yards on three catches. He’s yet to have a rushing attempt in the XFL.

DuJuan Harris - Los Angeles Wildcats

Remember that year where the Seahawks were out of running backs? No not this year, I’m talking 2015. Marshawn Lynch got hurt, Thomas Rawls got hurt, so DuJuan Harris spent a few minutes in Seattle. In a blowout win over DC, Harris picked up six yards on five carries, bringing his season total to 12 yards on seven attempts.

As an aside, in case you’re wondering where Kasen Williams has been on the Dragons offense, he has missed every game this year due to injury. It’s unknown when he’ll make his season debut.
