  • Mike Damergis

Thirty years ago on July 17, 1983, the Michigan Panthers beat the Philadelphia Stars, 24-22, in the first USFL Championship Game in Denver. Panthers’ quarterback Bobby Hebert earned MVP honors, tossing three TD passes, including the game-sealer to Anthony Carter early in the fourth quarter.

This and other great stories can be found in the book The USFL: The Rebel League by RotoExperts’ Mike Damergis.
