New Jersey Generals



The New Jersey Generals Cheerleaders





Glenn Inverso - Quarterback (Liberty)


Glenn Inverso wore this jersey during his brief stint in the USFL. An injury to New Jersey Generals starting quarterback, Brian Sipe, forced the team to move Sipe to the developmental squad on March 2, 1984. To fill the void at the position, the Generals signed Inverso the same day and he was in uniform as a backup when the Generals defeated the Jacksonville Bulls 28-26 in Jacksonville. Sipe was healthy enough to return to action the following week and the Generals released Inverso on March 9. Inverso later inked a free agent contract with the New York Jets in May 1984 to become the first Liberty Flames player to sign a NFL contract. Inverso did not make the squad but did make history for his college team.

Roger Ruzek - Kicker (Weber State)



Roger Ruzek was not drafted out of Weber State (a CFL player factory for many years) and signed as a free agent with the Cleveland Browns in 1983. He was unable to beat out veteran Matt Bahr and was released. In 1984, he signed with the USFL’s New Jersey Generals and spent two seasons there where he wore these pants. In the USFL, Ruzek made 34 of 48 field goal attempts. After the USFL folded, Ruzek signed as a free agent with the Dallas Cowboys in 1987 to replace Rafael Septien. He was replaced for two games in 1989 during a holdout by former USFL kicker Luis Zendejas before returning and was replaced for good by the Cowboys later that season. Ruzek signed with the Philadelphia Eagles for the remainder of the 1989 campaign and remained there until he strained a hamstring making a game-winning field goal against Green Bay early in the 1993 season. The Eagles signed Matt Bahr to kick during the injury and decided to keep Bahr and released Ruzek. After Bahr struggled, the Eagles brought Ruzek back late in the season. In 1994, he signed with the San Francisco 49ers but did not make the team out of training camp. Ruzek made 120 of 166 field goal attempts in the NFL with a long of 53 yards. In 1996, he resurfaced with the San Jose SaberCats of the Arena league making 3 of 8 field goals through the league's narrow goal posts. He also played for the London Monarchs in NFL Europe in 1996, making 8 of 11 field goals.
