The Birmingham Iron got their season started in grand style Sunday when Braedon Bowman gained 16 yards and a first down thanks to a majestic hurdle.

Bowman, a former undrafted free agent out of South Alabama, has spent time in the NFL but has never played a down in the regular season. Now he’s getting his chance to shine in the AAF and is making it count.
