Steelman MVP of World Championship

Trent Steelman was back taking snaps from center like his Army football days.

At least, for a few plays.

Steelman, Army’s starting quarterback from 2009-12, lined up in the Wildcat for Team USA during their gold-medal game against Japan in the International Federation of American Football World Championship in Canton, Ohio. The former Army quarterback rushed for 4 and 8 yards on consecutive plays. Earlier in the game, Steelman broke off a 36-yard touchdown run on a jet sweep.

Steelman finished as Team USA’s leading rusher (4 carries, 56 yards) in a 59-12 victory over Japan. He also caught four passes for 49 yards, playing slot receiver.

“We’re world champs,” Steelman said after the win over Japan. “That’s what America does. We play football. We came in with the mentality that we’re going to teach the rest of the world that this is our game, and we did that for four games straight games.”

The 2013 Army graduate was named most valuable player of the gold-medal game and the tournament. Steelman caught 18 passes for 258 yards and tw0 touchdowns, rushed for 66 yards and a touchdown and recovered a fumble for a score to help Team USA go 4-0 in the tournament.
