"The game was amazing," he said. "I'm a running back and they love to run the ball. Jordan had 31 rushes and the backup had 15.

The coaches were a big part of Foxx's choice as well.
"They are the best coaching staff I've met," he said. "They all work together so well, they treat their players amazing. They don't beat around the bush, they tell you what's real. I really love the staff. I couldn't ask for a better one."
As for playing time, Foxx went on about his chances upon his arrival this summer in Connecticut.
"It's all about what I bring to the table," he said. "If I can go out there and prove myself, I'll play."
