During the second quarter of the Baltimore Brigade’s game Friday night against the first-place Philadelphia Soul, Brandon Collins leapt off the Royal Farms Arena field for a highlight-reel touchdown — and landed on “SportsCenter.”
The former New York Giants wide receiver’s over-the-wall, go-ahead catch checked in at No. 2 on ESPN’s top-10 plays for Friday. The defending champion Soul (3-1) never caught up thereafter in the 31-21 loss, and the Brigade (3-1) moved into a first-place tie in the Arena Football League standings.
Collins is second on the Brigade with 217 receiving yards and third with four receiving touchdowns and 18 receptions. Quarterback Randy Hippeard, who has thrown 21 touchdown passes and no interceptions this season, was named the Most Valuable Player on Friday for the third time in four games.
