After the game, McCarron was asked what he would tell his family about times like this in his career.

"You know, ever since I came out of college, I've been kind of counted out a little bit, and it's just fun to come out here and play. I miss playing, not always just being a backup. That's a great living, it really is and I absolutely love it, but I love playing. This is special and I can't thank the XFL enough."

XFL co-owner, Dwayne Johnson took to Twitter to congratulate McCarron.

Johnson also tweeted about how much it means to him to see people like McCarron playing again.
