Jude stepped up for the Fleet as an ambassador after his injury, even doing an AMA on Reddit. He got in what he could during that first game against the Commanders, making a pick, and then taunting SA fans from the Fleet bench- though later in his AMA he admitted he very much enjoyed playing at the Alamodome.
Finished with 80 total tackles and 7 sacks over 3 years.
Went undrafted in 2018, and spent time in the camp of the Oakland Raiders.
Joined the AAF in 2019, playing for the San Diego Fleet.
Notched 7.5 tackles and .5 sacks over 8 contests.
Spent the remainder of the year in the CFL with the BC Lions, and then later the Winnipeg Blue Bombers.
In 2022, signed with the Vegas Knight Hawks of the IFL.
Pretty happy to get this certified, but with an underwhelming autograph, I couldn’t help but be disappointed that Meffy didn’t spell out his entire name- though I don’t blame him. Later I pulled a second certified autograph of his that was fully spelled out.
Terry Poole played OT for San Diego State from 2011-2014.
Selected in the 4th round of the 2015 NFL Draft by the Seattle Seahawks and was with the team through 2016.
Spent 2017 with the Dolphins and Texans.
In mid 2018, he became one of the early signings of the AAF, joining the San Diego Fleet, playing for the team through 2019 before it ceased operations.
Poole was selected by the Houston Roughnecks of the XFL in 2020.
As I was a season ticket holder, I had tried a few times to get Terry’s autograph throughout the XFL season since he had an AAF card, but didn’t ever run into him at preseason activities or exiting after game. With a bit of diligence I was able to track him down via the mail and he responded with a nice note thanking me for being a fan of both leagues (AAF & XFL).
Celebrating the game, the players, the cards, and the autographs for over 25 years.
