BIRMINGHAM, Alabama — Former University of Northern Colorado (UNC) and Denver Broncos quarterback Kyle Sloter is being honored for his Week 2 performance in the USFL.
Sloter went 25 of 39 on passes for 266-yards of offense and two touchdowns.
"God bless. My team made me great that day. On to the next," said Sloter.
Sloter starred at quarterback for the UNC Bears in 2016, throwing 26 touchdown passes. Sloter was signed to the Broncos as an undrafted free agent in May 2017 before being waived after the preseason that year.
Sloter has also played for the Minnesota Vikings, Arizona Cardinals, Detroit Lions, Chicago Bears, and Las Vegas Raiders.
The Breakers also claimed the Defensive Player of the Week with Vontae Diggs.
After going three for three on field goal attempts, Houston Gamblers kicker Nick Vogel was voted Special Teams Player of the Week.
