Even though the Arena Football League is still miles behind the National Football League, the game still has its stars. John Dutton, a former pigskin tosser at the University of Nevada is one of the sports' brightest, and will be immortalized as the first cover athlete for the first game of Electronic Arts' Arena Football franchise.
Dutton led the Crush to the 2005 championship, and he has a history of winning. The QB also earned some finger hardware in 2002 when he was named the MVP of ArenaBowl XVI as the play-caller for the San Jose SaberCats.
Arena Football is set for a February 7 release on the PlayStation 2 and Xbox. The game re-creates the high-octane action of the AFL, with eight-on-eight matchups, a smaller field of play, and high scoring. For more information, check out GameSpot's scouting report.
