Former McNeese Star Player Signs With Houston Gamblers In USFL
The Houston Gamblers of the USFL have signed a former Poke and Southland Conference Player Of The Year award winner.
This player was an absolute beast on the field for McNeese and should continue his dominant ways for the Gamblers for the rest of the USFL season.
Here are some of his awards from the 2021 season:
- 2021 Consensus All-American (1st Team AP, AFCA, Stats Perform, Athlon Sports, FCS ADA)
- 2021 Phil Steele All-American 3rd Team
- 2021 7th in Buck Buchanan Award voting as FCS top defensive player
- 2021 Southland Conference Defensive Player of the Year
- 2021 1st Team All-Southland Conference
- 2021 1st Team All-Louisiana
- 2021 SLC All-Academic and Student-Athlete of the Year
- 2021 East-West Shrine Bowl Participant
- 2021 Hula Bowl Participant
Former McNeese defensive star Isiah Chambers was signed by the Houston Gamblers during the Memorial Day weekend. Chambers will help add a much-needed pass rusher to the Gamblers' defense.
Isiah finished the 2020 season with 7.5 sacks and had 10.5 sacks last season for the Pokes.
The Gamblers have the worst defense in the USFL and need talent added to their team wherever they can find it There are only three games left in the regular season. They signed Chambers on the Friday before last week's game. Isiah didn't play, but I'm sure he'll be causing havoc in the backfield this week as the Gamblers take on the Tampa Bay Bandits on Sunday at 3:00pm. You can watch the game on the Peacock app.
The Gamblers had the lead, 24-13, heading into the fourth quarter this weekend against the Philidelphia Stars. However, their defense showed exactly why they're the worst defense in the league and allowed the Stars to score 22 unanswered points in the fourth quarter blowing the lead.
