Ross has scored nearly all of the Soul’s offensive touchdowns in the Soul’s game against the Arizona Rattlers tonight in Arizona. He will have an opportunity to break the all-time record in overtime.
The Soul and Rattlers are presently tied at 55 points apiece.
Ross scored his 6th touchdown of the game with 23 seconds in the 4th quarter. His 6th touchdown helped the Soul go up 55-48.
