The recipient of a juris doctor from Case Western Reserve University School of Law, Geoffrey "Geoff" Scovil is an Albuquerque-based attorney who specializes in habeas corpus law. Although he lives in Albuquerque, Geoffrey Scovil is a passionate fan of the National Football League's Cleveland Browns.
The Browns are regarded as one of the worst scouting and drafting franchises in the National Football League (NFL). The team has arguably had more first-round failures than any other team, including running back Trent Richardson, who was selected with the third overall pick in the 2012 NFL Draft. An alumnus of the University of Alabama, Richardson lasted only three seasons in the league and is among the worst running backs of all-time to receive significant play time. Through 46 games, he averaged only 44.2 yards per game and 3.3 yards per carry.
Despite not playing since 2014, Richardson is attempting a comeback after signing a contract with the Saskatchewan Roughriders of the Canadian Football League on September 26. The team's starting running back, Cameron Marshall, has been battling an injury, and his replacement, Keinan LaFrance, has averaged only 48.6 yards per game. At the time of Richardson's signing, the Roughriders had six games remaining and were in the middle of a battle for a wildcard playoff spot.
