Former Packer Rouse picks off three in UFL Title Game

The UFL may be dead or at least taking its last gasps of life, celebrated probably the league’s final game when Marty Schottenheimer finally won the big one.

The Virginia Destroyers, in their first season of UFL football (actually, they’re the relocated Florida Tuskers), and with Schottenheimer as their head coach, they won the league’s championship game Friday, 17-3, over the Las Vegas Locomotives.

But what’s even better for Green Bay Packers fans is that defensive back Aaron Rouse played the biggest role in the win – remember how he rose to potential long-term starter and flamed out just as fast in Green Bay?

Rouse picked off three passes in the UFL Title Game and said after the game, “From day one, when people said this league wouldn’t happen and this team wouldn’t happen, and through Hurricane Irene when we were out there in trailers,” Rouse said.  “We stuck together. Nobody complained.  And here we are.”

Las Vegas had won the first two UFL titles.
