USFL MVP KaVontae Turpin Dazzles With Dallas Cowboys

USFL MVP KaVontae Turpin Dazzles For Dallas In Los Angeles

Folks, the whole world is finally beginning to realize just how important spring football is. KaVontae Turpin, MVP of the USFL, has been lighting it up for the Dallas Cowboys in preseason.

On Saturday night, Turpin took the entire country by storm. In the Cowboys matchup against the Los Angeles Chargers, KaVontae put on a show. First, he returned a kickoff 98 yards to the house, giving the Cowboys a 7-3 lead.

This caught the attention of multiple big-time names. Skip Bayless, who covered Turpin during the USFL’s season, was quite impressed.

While everyone was busy talking about his kickoff return, KaVontae was busy getting back to work. Just moments later, he juked and dazzled with an 84 yard punt return for a score. While Turpin is an elite receiver, his unbelievable talents as a specialist were put on full display against Los Angeles.

With his sensational performance last night, many were made aware of just how incredible KaVontae Turpin truly is. He’s been posting solid numbers in training camp, and is now getting an opportunity to showcase his unique abilities to the entire nation.

As the regular season approaches, expect Turpin to make a run at the 53 man roster. He was signed to a three year deal this offseason, and continues to exceed expectations in Dallas.

Turpin & Spring Football Success

This is nothing new. KaVontae has taken a tough, long road to get to where he’s at now. He dominated in Fan Controlled Football, The Spring League, The European League Of Football – and then, of course, was awarded MVP of the USFL’s inaugural season. He shone bright for Mike Riley’s New Jersey Generals, earning All-USFL honors as a wide receiver and return specialist.

Now, he is showing everyone what he is capable of, on a national level. Mike McCarthy clearly likes what he’s seeing so far. In fact, he claims that the entire NFL was tuning into the United States Football League.

Had it not been for the incredible exposure and spotlight that the USFL provided Turpin with, who knows if this would have been possible. You can stay up to date on all USFL to NFL signings with our official tracker.
