Former South Mississippi standout Dylan Favre wasted no time making an impact on the Indoor Football League.
In his first professional action Saturday, the former St. Stanislaus gun-slinger led the Cedar Rapids Titans to a 39-15 victory over the Green Bay Blizzard.
Known for his improvisation and ability to make plays happen, Favre flashed some of the old skills in the win. He completed 12 of 19 passes for 97 yards and also rushed for 25 yards.
With the game knotted at zero, Favre helped break the tie, finding receiver Eric Thomas in the back of the end zone for a touchdown. Favre also threw an interception in the game.
Following the game, the IFL tweeted "The CRTitans led by rookie Dylan Favre defeated the BlizzardIFL 39-15."
"Led by CRTitans defense... Not me," Favre retweeted. "more guys than me on the field... I play a small part."
After graduating from SSC, Favre bounced around a bit at the college level, playing at Mississippi State and Pearl River Community College before settling in at UT-Martin.
Following his collegiate career, Favre turned heads once again last summer when he led Team USA to a gold medal in the International Federation of American Football World Championship in Canton, Ohio. In four games, Favre threw for almost 600 yards and four touchdowns while splitting duties under center.
Favre signed a contract with the Titans earlier this month.
The IFL was created in 2008 after the Intense Football League and United Indoor Football league merged. The 10-team league currently has franchises in Iowa, Wisconsin, South Dakota, Texas, Colorado, Nebraska, Montana and Washington.
The Titans travel to the Sioux Falls Storm on Saturday.
