GENERALS TRIVIA

--
The Generals first-ever game was played against the Los Angeles Express at the Los Angeles Coliseum.
--
The game was the premiere broadcast of the USFL on ABC.
--
Herschel Walker rushed for 65 yards in the game, seeing limited action.
--
The Los Angeles Express would win the game, 20-15.
--
Though attendance at the game was over 30,000, those watching the game on television got the impression the game was poorly attended, due in large part to the size of the L.A. Coliseum, which held well over 90,000 fans when filled.

 
In his three years in a New Jersey Generals uniform, Herschel Walker rushed for 5,562 yards on 1,143 carries, scoring 54 touchdowns.  He is the USFL's all-time leading rusher, as well as the record holder for most rushing yards in a single game, 233, accrued on April 7, 1985 against the Houston Gamblers.

Walker was also the USFL's all-time leading scorer.  His 61 touchdowns were combined with a pair of two-point conversions, giving him 370 career points, beating out Philadelphia/Baltimore Stars kicker David Trout for the top spot.  Trout scored 354 points in his three years in the league.

Linebacker Jim LeClair earned a slot on the All-USFL team following the 1984 season.

Center Kent Hull, RB Herschel Walker and CB Kerry Justin each made the All-USFL team for 1985.

The Generals called the University of Central Florida as their 1983 training camp home.

The Generals could be heard locally on WOR-AM 710 in New York, with Charlie Steiner (later of ESPN and YES fame) doing play by play, and Dave Herman and Robert Casciola teaming up on color commentary.

Generals tickets were priced at $10.00 and $12.50, respectively.

The administrative offices of the Generals were located at 3 Empire Boulevard in South Hackensack, New Jersey.  Unlike the NFL's Giants and Jets, the Generals were exclusively a New Jersey team in that it both played and had its offices in the state.
