After the league collapsed, he joined Mumme on the staff of the XFL Renegades as RB coach, and later as co-offensive coordinator in 2020.

All Europa 2007
A nice coup for me, Bobby is another solid player/ prospect of the NFLE/Europa who has become an intriguing up and coming coaching prospect. An apostle of the Hal Mumme tree, Blizzard came to my attention after he joined the AAF in 2019. I’ve been a fan ever since.
Channing Stribling played defensive back collegially at Michigan from 2013-2016. He amassed 69 total tackles, 3.5 tackles for loss, 1 sack, 1 forced fumble, 15 pass deflections, and 6 picks for 91 yards and a TD. After going unselected in the 2017 NFL draft, Channing was on and off the practice squads of Cleveland and Indianapolis that year. In 2018, he was in camp with the 49ers- later returning to the Colts, and then to the Chargers.
After being cut in October of 2018, Stribling decided to give the Alliance of American Football a shot. He was assigned to the Memphis Express and started in the team’s young secondary, posting 19 total tackles, 1 tackle for loss, 4 pass deflections, and an interception for 31 yards.
Kenny Hilliard comes from strong football bloodlines, being the nephew of former LSU and Saints RB Dalton Hilliard. Kenny followed in the footsteps of Dalton to LSU, where he averaged a healthy 5.2 yards per carry over his four years there while scoring 27 TDs on 302 carries. He’d be selected in the 7th round of the 2015 draft, as the Texans were looking to shore up their RB committee.
Kenny spent most of the next two seasons honing his craft, on and off the franchise’s practice squad. He’d sign with the Redskins in mid 2017 and again be on Washington’s practice squad through 2018.
Afterwards Kenny joined the Alliance of American Football in 2018 as one of their first recognizable name pickups. He’d play for the Memphis Express during the AAF’s lone 8 game season in 2019- seeing action in only the final game rushing 4 times for 6 yards, including an 11 yard burst, while catching 2 passes for 7 yards.
Celebrating the game, the players, the cards, and the autographs for over 25 years.
