The Memphis Showboats Set Sail for 2024: A Look at the Finalized Roster

As the Memphis Showboats hoist their sails for the inaugural UFL 2024 season, the anticipation swells along the banks of the Mississippi River. The team has meticulously trimmed its roster in preparation for opening day, ensuring that only the most capable hands are on deck as they embark on their journey through the grueling season ahead.

With a mix of seasoned veterans and fresh talent, the Showboats are poised to navigate the rough waters of the league, beginning with their season-opener against the Houston Roughnecks. The Sunday, March 31 showdown is set for a 2 p.m. CT kickoff, and fans nationwide can tune in to ESPN to catch the action live.

The roster, a collective of players from various collegiate programs, exemplifies diversity and depth in every position. At cornerback, players like Delrick Abrams Jr. and Quenton Meeks bring agility and intelligence to the secondary, while wide receivers Jonathan Adams, Dee Anderson, and Diondre Overton promise to deliver the aerial spectacle the Showboats’ fans crave.

Under center, the Showboats boast a trio of quarterbacks, with Case Cookus, Josh Love, and Troy Williams each ready to take the helm and steer the team’s offense. The versatile backfield is powered by Titus Swen and Darius Victor, whose prowess on the ground will be a cornerstone of the Showboats’ attack.

The offensive line, anchored by stalwarts like Alec Lindstrom and Darrin Paulo, will be the bulwark against the opposing defenses, providing the protection necessary for the Showboats’ offense to thrive.

On the defensive front, the Showboats have fortified their ranks with formidable linemen such as John Atkins Sr. and Josiah Bronson. The linebacker corps, featuring Anthony Butler, Jordan Ferguson, and TJ Neal, combines speed and strength to disrupt the plans of any offense that dares to challenge them.

Special teams have not been overlooked, with Matthew Coghlin ready to split the uprights and Matthew White set to pin opponents deep in their territory with his punting prowess.

As the Showboats sail into the 2024 season, they carry the hopes of Memphis on their shoulders. Their home opener, a much-anticipated clash with the San Antonio Brahmas on April 6 at 11 a.m. CT, will be an opportunity for the Showboats to anchor their presence in Simmons Bank Liberty Stadium and demonstrate that they are a force to be reckoned with this season.

Fans are eager to don their navy and gold, fill the stands, and support their team as they embark on what promises to be an exhilarating campaign. With the roster set and the team’s spirit as high as the sails of their namesake, the Memphis Showboats are ready to make waves in 2024. All aboard, Memphis – it’s time to set course for victory.
