BattleHawks Jordan Ta’Amu Selected XFL Star Of The Week

STAMFORD, Conn., February 26, 2020 – St. Louis BattleHawks quarterback Jordan Ta’amu has been selected by fans as the XFL Star of the Week. Ta’amu claimed 64% of the 27,800 votes on Twitter.

In the BattleHawks’ 23-16 win over the Seattle Dragons Saturday, Ta’amu completed 20 of 27 passes for 264 yards and a touchdown, while rushing for 63 yards. After that performance, the dual-threat quarterback out of Ole Miss now leads the XFL with 1,062 total yards. The BattleHawks improved to 3-1 with the victory.

In the final round of voting, Ta’amu faced the Houston Roughnecks defense, who forced five turnovers in the team’s 27-20 win against the Dallas Renegades, including a game-clinching interception in the closing minutes on their three-yard line.

Each week during the season, the XFL is giving fans the power to name the league’s top performer by voting for the XFL Star of the Week. On Saturday and Sunday, after each day’s games, one key player from each team is nominated by XFL Football Operations and the selected players are posted on the XFL Twitter account @XFL2020. Fans then have 24 hours to vote on their top player from each day; the daily winners then go head-to-head for the award.

The XFL Star of the Week is the league’s top weekly individual honor.

2020 XFL Star of the Week winners:

Week 4: Jordan Ta’amu – Quarterback, St. Louis BattleHawks
Week 3: Cam Phillips – Wide Receiver, Houston Roughnecks
Week 2: Cam Phillips – Wide Receiver, Houston Roughnecks
