Maximum Football is getting some star power behind it. Today, Canuck Play & Spear Interactive announced that they have agreed to a multi-year deal with Doug Flutie.

Doug Flutie had quite the career as a quarterback. You may know him from the notorious Hail Mary he threw against the University of Miami in 1984. Hailed as the “Miracle in Miami”, Flutie threw a last second Hail Mary into the end zone to secure a 47-45 win over #12 Miami. Flutie ended up winning the Heisman Trophy that season as well.

Flutie also played in the NFL for 11 seasons with four teams (Chicago, New England [twice], San Diego and Buffalo), 8 seasons in the CFL for three teams (Calgary, Toronto, BC) and one season in the USFL for New Jersey.

The agreement between Flutie and Canuck Play & Spear Interactive will allow Flutie’s name and likeness to be part of the game. The belief is that 2019’s version of Maximum Football will be named Doug Flutie’s Maximum Football.

Per the press release:

“I’m basically a kid at heart, who lives for playing sports in person or on the screen. This partnership gives me the chance to join the video game space and I’m looking forward to helping grow the Maximum Football brand,” said Flutie. “What drew me to Maximum Football was the innovative concept of including three different styles of football in the game.”
