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.

The Generals, who have a choice for a one-, two- or three-point conversion, elected to go for the one-point field goal attempt and Nick Rose successfully put the one-pointer through the uprights.

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.
