The St. Louis Battlehawks is sad because one of their training team members died.
The league said that Ben Siegfried, who worked in the XFL’s Athletic Training Department, died Thursday night. The team said that the graduate student from Lebanon Valley College played “an important role” in getting the Battlehawks and D.C. Defenders ready for the season.
“His infectious smile in the locker room and passion for his work will be deeply missed by all the players and staff who had the chance to work with him,” the XFL said in a statement. “His family and friends are in our thoughts and prayers.”

The league did not say anything else about how Siegfried died.
On Sunday at the Dome at America’s Center, the Battlehawks will play their first home game against the Arlington Renegades. On March 18, they will play the Defenders at the Dome.
Many companies and fans paid attention to the league and the Battlehawks during the 2020 season, even though only five of the ten games were played.
Antony Becht, a former St. Louis Ram, was hired as the team’s head coach on April 13, 2022, with the idea that he would lead the team when it came back in 2023.
The return to St. Louis was made official on July 24, 2022, when the XFL made the news public.
