XFL Now | December 5, 2019 | Grady Raskin Interview
Here are some highlights:
The Alternative Football News Network’s Kevin Drake, Co-Host and Lead Reporter for XFL Now, had the opportunity to talk with XFL Dallas President Grady Haskins. His experience in the Dallas sports market includes working with the Dallas Stars and The Texas Rangers.
Besides the normal pleasantries, when asked why Grady decided to sign with the XFL Grady stated:

Lastly, being able to put together the front office, being able to put a group of superstars together was something I really couldn’t pass up.
When asked about the football culture of North Texas Grady told of his love of the game and the reason XFL and XFL Dallas, in general, is here.
Football is king, not just across the United States but certainly here in North Texas, yes Dallas is big, Arlington is massive and Fort Worth is a big supporter. I think we have a lot of our high school state championships going on this weekend, so there’s a lot of people that are focusing. We’re not trying to take anybody’s place, we’re just interested in extending the football season.
“We’re for the love of football, we’re just an extension…”
