After the conference call Friday from XFL president Jeffrey Pollack, now former XFL employees took to Twitter to thank the league, fans and their co-workers. We have a list of some of them.
Sam Schwartzstein – Director of Football Operations
For 671 days I had the coolest job in the world: Change the game of football to make it better for fans, players, and coaches. I can't thank the @XFL2020, Oliver, Vince, and everyone involved enough. Made some friends for life and will share some of my favorite memories here pic.twitter.com/EQ5HeTmmuj— Sam Schwartzstein (@schwartzsteins) April 10, 2020
*Note: I was at that game pictured above, I was excited for both of them, to finally see their hard work come to life.
Blake Kuenzi – Dallas Renegades Equipment Coordinator
Joining the XFL was the best decision I could have ever made. I met the most amazing people, learned so much about myself, and truly enjoyed going to work. I don’t know what is next for me but I know the XFL played a huge roll in shaping my future and for that I am truly grateful pic.twitter.com/FXNTIW3w30— Blake Kuenzi (@oumgr) April 13, 2020

Brooks Sherman – Tampa Bay Vipers Field Producer & Editor
The end of the XFL came as a shock. I went through my favorite moments of the season and put this video together. I want to thank the @xfl2020 and the @XFLVipers players coaches, and staff for this experience that I will never forget. I am looking forward to the next opportunity. pic.twitter.com/tIokLtj1d6— Brooks Sherman (@brooks_sherm) April 12, 2020

Jenny Taft – Sideline Reporter
Covering @xfl2020 @XFLonFOX was one of my favorite experiences as a sideline reporter. I’m bummed for the players, coaches, team staff members – everyone was so excited about the future of the league. Lucky to experience it and get to know some really special athletes and people.— Jenny Taft (@JennyTaft) April 11, 2020

Jared Forest – NY Guardians Communications Coordinator
Status: Free Agent— Jared Forest (@TheDynastyOwl) April 11, 2020
Yesterday, I was among the 400 employees who got laid off as the XFL suspended operations. The experiences that I have gained as the Communications Coordinator of the Guardians are absolutely priceless…
However, it is time to move forward.

There is a lot more of these tweets and messages. We at XFL News Hub wish everyone involved with the XFL the best of luck and pray that everyone remains safe and that there will be new opportunity’s on the horizon real soon.
