Thursday, July 2, 2009

Nashville, Tenn. - Former Tiger defensive back Ahmaad Smith tallied one interception leading to a score, surviving another cut on "4th and Long".

Smith caught the interception near the 30-yard line from a teammate's pass deflection. He returned it inside the 5-yard line before fumbling it into the hands of another teammate for a score. 

The Home Team, which featured the remaining contestants, rallied back from behind defeating the Rival Team, 35-25, in an 11-on-11 full game. 

Four players who were released earlier, had a chance to fight for another opportunity playing for the Rival Team. The Rival Team was coached by NFL highly decorated wide receiver Jerry Rice.

At the end, none of the returning players were picked up, however, one member of the Home Team was released leaving three defensive backs and  three wide receivers. 

4th and Long airs Monday nights at 10 p.m. on Spike TV and is hosted by former Dallas Cowboy pro bowler and NFL Hall of Fame wide receiver Michael Irvin.

The show, filmed at the Cotton Bowl in Dallas, Texas, debuted on May 18th and featured 12 athletes (six defensive backs, six wide receivers) ranging from the collegiate, semi-pro, and Arena Football League ranks.

The winner after the ten episodes will fill the last remaining spot on the Dallas Cowboys' 80-man roster.


Smith's interception led to a Home Team score. The Home Team defeated returning contestants, the Rival Team, 35-25.
