Card: Ultimate World League 1992 Acquired: TTM 2019, C/o Home Sent: 10/7 Received: 8/17 (315 days) Failure: TTM 2013, C/o Work
Jason Wallace played defensive back and returned kicks for the Virigina Cavaliers from 1988 to 1990. He finished his college career with 11 interceptions for 72 yards and a TD. Against Maryland he took a punt 60 yards for a TD in 1990- while tallying 32 punt returns for 410 yards on the year.
Wallace was heartbroken not to make the Colts as a free agent in 1991. He signed with the Ohio Glory of the World League in 1992. He matured quickly under the tutelage of positional coach Dennis Thurman, but during the 3rd quarter of the opening game, he tore ligaments in his left ankle. The doctors didn’t believe he’d play again, but somehow Jason only missed 5 games, and intercepted 3 passes over the back half of the season. The Glory elected to protect him going into 1993, but the league suspended operations, and wouldn’t be seen again until 1995.
He joined the Arizona Cardinals but did not make the squad, so he hopped on over to join the CFL revolution with the Sacramento Gold Miners in 1993 and 94, and then joined the franchise when it moved to San Antonio in 1995.
Retired, he lives in Texas, where he is involved in a variety of football and sports related initiatives.
