Young Leads Express Against Arizona

Associated Press

The Los Angeles Express has yet to win a United States Football League game here in three years, but Arizona Outlaws Coach Frank Kush says he's afraid the drought could end Saturday night.

"With that guy (Steve) Young, it doesn't take them long to work things out," Kush said of the high-priced, second-year quarterback out of Brigham Young University.

Young, a 6-foot 2-inch left-hander, has completed 53 of 102 passes for 800 yards with three touchdowns and five interceptions. He also leads the Express (1-3) in rushing with 163 yards and 2 touchdowns on 24 carries.

"I think we need to throw more if we're going to be successful," Young said. "I'd like to throw 60 times a game if the coaches would let me. We just need to keep winning and get our confidence level up. We put a lot of pressure on ourselves by losing our first three games."

Los Angeles, 1-3, blew fourth-quarter leads in each of its losses to the Houston Gamblers (33-24).
