Rival: Everyone
Strengths:  It's pretty obvious, but at 6'5, 180, Tussey is the biggest figure in the league and has the strongest arm.  He could prove to be a huge asset for this Blue Baracudas team, throwing deep bombs to speedy WR Tommy Babcock.
Weaknesses:  Absolutely no speed, lacks mobility and quickness, strictly a pocket passer, and can not play any Defense.
Quote from Tussey- "I have a great QB build, by far the strongest arm in the XOFL, can also play WRin jump ball possessions, only part I will struggle with is on defense if i have to drop back into coverage."
Quotes on Tussey- "He has an arm like Vick, he has a gun for an arm, but he's not fast like Vick, he has the speed of a quarterback like Drew Bledsoe."- Ryan Egan, of Ferdinand Magellen
Did You Know...that Tussey is one of only two pitchers to throw a perfect game in the OWBL, the Oburg Wiffle Ball League.  His Perfect Game came days after Tyler Wenz recorded the first ever "Perfect-Perfect" Game, striking out everyone who came to the plate.
 

"Gil is a good player, but doesn't have enough confidence in his game. I think he feels he needs to gain attention through harsh quotes about other players, instead by his own play on the field."- Nick Sabatello, of F-9
