Hall of Fame Game - Dallas Cowboys v Arizona Cardinals

The NFL’s kickoff to its 2017 preseason happened last night with the traditional Hall of Fame Game, the Dallas Cowboys beat the Arizona Cardinals 20-18.

Like most early preseason games a lot of us were left wondering “Who are these guys?” But there was one player that everyone from the area should have recognized.

Former Lansing Catholic and Central Michigan quarterback Cooper Rush got into the game in the second half replacing Dallas’ starting QB Kellen Moore (remember him Lions fans?) and he did not disappoint the hometown fans who might have been watching.

In his first preseason appearance Rush threw his first career NFL touchdown. Granted it was a preseason touchdown, but it was a good moment regardless for the mid-Michigan area to see a prodigal son compete at the highest level.

Rush finished the game 9/18 for 87 yards and the one touchdown pass to Uzoma Nwachukwu.

The fight to be the Cowboys’ backup quarterback is currently a three way¬†battle between Cooper Rush, Kellen Moore and seasoned veteran Luke McCown.
