In the 8th round of the XFL Draft, former Texas Tech running back Justin Stockton was selected by the New York Guardians.

The last bit of action Stockton saw was for the Arizona Hotshots during the short-lived AAF, where he finished with 43 carries for 233 yards and 1 touchdown.

During his career at Texas Tech, Stockton rushed for 1,714 yards and 14 touchdowns. He was also a great option in the receiving game, as he hauled in 82 passes during his career, totaling 872 yards and 10 touchdowns.
