New Jersey Generals quarterback Luis Perez hooked up with Randy Satterfield for the first touchdown pass in United States Football history on Saturday night. It was a 3-yard completion.
Perez found Satterfield in the back of the end zone and the wide receiver was hit by Birmingham Stallions defensive back Tae Hayes. The wind appeared to be knocked out of Satterfield at the end of the play and he was seen running off the field.

Perez and the Generals got started with a 49-yard pass to Satterfield after the kickoff.
It wouldn’t take long for the Stallions to come back.
