    Former Kicker Jose Cortez Becoming a Cop

    [​IMG]Posted Jun 24th 2007 7:14AM by Michael David Smith

    Former 49ers and Cowboys (and XFL) kicker Jose Cortez hasn't been able to catch on with an NFL team, even for a training camp tryout, and he's currently employed as a dockworker.

    But he's about to get a new job as an Oregon State trooper. A native of El Salvador, Cortez is a naturalized U.S. citizen who says he hopes the way he resisted street gangs and went to college will make him a good role model to other Latino youth in Oregon.

    Sports by Brooks has a good take on this news:

    "Cortez's resume includes a stint in the XFL, where he lead the league in scoring and was named championship game MVP. So, he knows how to deal with violent psychopaths."

    However, if you're driving along the highway in Oregon and he pulls you over, you might want to take the opposite approach. Try saying, "Hey, I loved the XFL." It might get you out of a ticket.

    Wouldn't it be funny if he pulled over Larry Allen?.

    Since I wanted to kill him when he missed that FG in Seattle, does that make me a potential cop killer?

    If he gets in a shootout, he'll probably miss wide right!

    Well, one thing you can say about Cortez...he was not afraid to stick his head in on tackles during kickoffs...!!! He was not as timid as lots of kickers..

    And, when he stood up and damn near kicked Larry Allen's butt for grabbing his face mask...I knew right there he was a fighter! :D

    I didn't know that little nugget. Another example of the quality football the XFL produced...

    ha yeah. A Kicker winning the MVP of the championship game? If a Kicker won the Super Bowl MVP, I have a feeling Hos would cut off his leg with a rusty spoon.
