Outlaws mini-camp notes
December 14, 2000

Outlaws add two more players to roster: Late Wednesday, the Outlaws added former Nebraska RB Clinton Childs and former Alcorn State WR Cedric Tillman to the team’s mini-camp roster. In order to make room for Childs, a territorial protection and Tillman, an NFL veteran who has seen action with the Broncos, Giants and Jaguars during his NFL days, Head Coach Jim Criner and the Outlaws football staff placed RB Orlando Smith and WR Tariq McDonald on waivers.

Childs, a 6-0, 215-lb. back from Omaha, was signed by the New York Jets as a free agent in 1996 after sharing time with Lawrence Phillips and Ahman Green during his three seasons with the Huskers. Childs was a part of Nebraska’s two perfect National Championship seasons in 1994 and 1995, and led the ’95 squad with 7.8 yards per carry. In 1994, during the week following Tom Osborne’s suspension of troubled RB Lawrence Phillips, Childs received the start in Phillips' place and took the first run of the game against Arizona State for a Husker touchdown. The 65-yard gallop marked the quickest score from scrimmage in modern Husker football history.

Tillman, currently a substitute teacher in Henderson, NV, the southeastern suburb of Las Vegas, played five seasons in the NFL, including three with the Denver Broncos (1992-94) and two with the Jacksonville Jaguars (1995-96). The Alcorn State product ranks second in school history in both receptions (192) and touchdowns (20), and at 6-2, 220, Tillman will bring some size to the Outlaws’ receiving corp. Tillman’s top performance as a pro occurred on November 20, 1994, when he caught 8 John Elway passes for 175 yards against Atlanta, including a 68-yard TD.
