Birmingham Stallions Scheduled Matches and Results

The Birmingham Stallions were a professional American football team based in Birmingham, Alabama. The group began to play in 1984 as one of the charter members of the United States Football League (USFL). They played their home games at Legion Field and made it to the playoffs twice during their three years of existence before folding along with the rest of the USFL after its 1985 season.

The team was owned by A.L. Williams, founder of Primerica Financial Services, who hired Rollie Dotsch as general manager and Wagner “Bud” Moore as head coach for the inaugural season. Moore was succeeded by former San Francisco 49ers assistant coach Jim Mora after a 2-7 start.

Under Mora, the Stallions improved from 5-13 to 10-8 and a berth in the USFL playoffs, where they lost in the divisional round to the eventual champions, the Baltimore Stars. The team qualified for the postseason again in 1985 but was eliminated by the Arizona Wranglers.

Despite their success, fan attendance at Legion Field was inconsistent throughout Birmingham’s three years in the USFL. After it folded following its 1985 season, many of its most notable players went on to play in other professional leagues, including quarterback Walter Lewis with Detroit Lions and linebacker Reggie Collier with Houston Oilers. Other players, such as Sammy Winder and Steve Young, continued their careers after spending time with Birmingham Stallions. Although ultimately unsuccessful, the team provided some of Birmingham’s most exciting football ever.

The Stallions memory continues today, with several fan organizations dedicated to keeping their legacy alive. Despite being gone for over thirty years, they are still remembered and appreciated by many fans as an essential part of Birmingham’s sports history. The team may be gone, but people will never forget them.
