Digital Athlete Roundup: Four More Football Legends Join UFFS
Ultimate Franchise Fantasy Sports has added two Pro Bowlers and two Hall of Famers to their roster of Digital Athlete NFTs over the past week. Former NFL stars Michael Vick and Walt Harris have joined the UFFS team, along with former CFL stars Damon Allen and Nik Lewis. They will be launching their digital careers in the Legends Leagues on the UFFS platform, with gameplay starting in 2022.
The UFFS roster already featured Pro Football Hall of Famer Cris Carter, active NFLers Trishton Jackson and Justice Hill, retired NHLer and Olympian Ryan Malone, and world champion boxer Terence (Bud) Crawford. Another NFL great, Eric Metcalf, is also in the fold — signing up to co-host this weekend’s UFAFL Franchise Auction live from Las Vegas, with the Ultimate Fantasy American Football League kicking off alongside the NFL in September. Michael Vick The first overall pick in the 2001 NFL Draft out of Virginia Tech, Vick’s 13-year career showcased his electrifying skill-set with the Atlanta Falcons and Philadelphia Eagles as a four-time Pro Bowler. One of the most dynamic quarterbacks ever to play, Vick holds the record for most rushing yards by a QB in NFL history and second-most in a single season — becoming the first quarterback to rush for 1,000 yards in a season. Now, Vick enters football immortality as a Digital Athlete NFT with UFFS — where he’ll be passing to the likes of Cris Carter in the American Football Legends League!
Walt Harris Another NFL Pro Bowler, Harris was a first-round pick by the Chicago Bears in the 1996 NFL Draft. The defensive back also suited up for the Indianapolis Colts, Washington, and the San Francisco 49ers over his 13-year NFL career. Along with his professional accolades, Harris is a college football SEC Legends member as well as a Mississippi State football Hall of Famer.
Damon Allen One of the most prolific passers in football history and a member of two Hall of Fames, Damon Allen’s Canadian Football League career spanned three decades over which he won four Grey Cup championships, three Grey Cup Most Valuable Player awards and one CFL Most Outstanding Player award. When he retired in 2008, Damon was professional football’s all-time passing leader with 72,381 yards and held the CFL record for all-time rushing yards by a quarterback. Inducted into both the Canadian Football Hall of Fame and Canada’s Sports Hall of Fame, Damon will certainly be the face of a franchise when UFFS launches the Canadian Football Legends League!
Nik Lewis Over an incredible 14-year CFL career with the Calgary Stampeders and Montreal Alouettes, Lewis won two Grey Cup championships and set the league’s all-time receptions record (1,051). Other honors include being named the 2004 Most Outstanding Rookie, a three-time CFL All-Star and a six-time Divisional All-Star, and finishing with 10 seasons of 1,000 yards receiving before retiring in 2017. A first-ballot inductee into the 2021 Canadian Football Hall of Fame, Lewis is also looking forward to the Legends Leagues and all the other revenue streams for active and retired players across all sports on the UFFS platform.
