During the late first quarter of Sunday’s AAF Week 6 game between Birmingham and San Diego, Trent Richardson showed off all his skills.
Lined up next to quarterback Luis Perez, he slipped out of the backfield and caught a short pass. From there, Richardson did all the rest, shaking multiple defenders before ultimately blowing up two of them near the goal line and forcing his way in for the score.

Richardson has been a touchdown machine for the Iron this season. He now has nine touchdowns in five-plus games after this receiving score.
His yards-per-carry average is abysmal, but given his scoring prowess he might just get an invite to an NFL camp this summer.
