Backyard Sports: Rookie Rush Achievement Guide:


1. Sack Attack
Description: Sack the quarterback, or be signed in when another player does
Gamerscore Worth: 5G
How to Earn: On defense, choose any play (I kept choosing "Pressure" then "Spy"). Line up on the line (either left or right) and when the QB hikes the ball, run at him. Press X to tackle him for the sack. He has to be behind the line of scrimmage for it to register as a sack.


2. No Yards For You!
Description: Sack the quarterback 5 times in one game, or be signed in when another player does
Gamerscore Worth: 25G
How to Earn: Use the same strategy as Sack Attack, but repeat four more times.


3. Long Bomb
Description: Complete a 50+ yard passing play, or be signed in when another player does
Gamerscore Worth: 10G
How to Earn: On offense, choose "Empty Backfield" then "Hail Mary." It\'s best if you already have Pablo on your team since he\'s the fastest. Hike the ball, wait a couple of seconds (avoiding tacklers if they are coming at you) and press Y to throw to Pablo. Chances are he will outrun everyone, but hold down Right Trigger to sprint. Just make sure he gets at least 50 yards. Use Right Joystick to juke or plow through the defenders.


4. Air Mail
Description: Throw over 300 yards in one game, or be signed in when another player does
Gamerscore Worth: 25G
How to Earn: Keep throwing the ball (Hail Mary pass) until you get 300 yards. This is easily obtained while playing a one minute quarter game. You can check your stats by pressing the Start Button.


5. It's Good!
Description: Kick a 50+ yard field goal, or be signed in when another player does
Gamerscore Worth: 10G
How to Earn: For this achievement, use the 7th Street Brawlers since they are a 5 in Power. Since there are no traditional yard lines in this game and it doesn\'t tell you what yard line you\'re on, I had to do a little guessing. Here\'s how I did it. When you have the ball, go out of bounds on the third line from the end zone you are trying to get to. I can only assume that it\'s the 30 yard line. On the next play, choose "Special Teams" then "Field Goal." Press A when the arrow is in the center and press A again when the meter is in the green. Green is the most power. Hopefully the ball will sail through the uprights. If it falls short, ensure next time that the meter is in the green or try just a little bit closer.


6. Big Game
Description: Score 50+ points in one game, or be signed in when another player does
Gamerscore Worth: 50G
How to Earn: Score every chance you get. I barely got this playing one minute quarters and I scored on every possession. It\'s best to play 2 minute quarters, but still, score on every possession and this can easily be unlocked.


7. Touchdown!
Description: Score a touchdown, or be signed in when another player does
Gamerscore Worth: 5G
How to Earn: Easy, just score your first touchdown any way you can.


8. Lightning Fast!
Description: Complete a 50+ yard running play, or be signed in when another player does.
Gamerscore Worth: 10G
How to Earn: On offense, choose "Ace" then "Toss." It\'s best if you already have Pablo on your team since he\'s the fastest. Hike the ball and the QB will toss back to Pablo. Chances are he will outrun everyone, but hold down Right Trigger to sprint. Just make sure he gets at least 50 yards. Use Right Joystick to juke or plow through the defenders.


9. Piece of Cake
Description: Shut out your opponent, or be signed in when another player does
Gamerscore Worth: 25G
How to Earn: If you are playing on Easy, you really should have no trouble preventing the opposing team from scoring. I was using "Pressure" then "Spy" just about every play on defense and sacking the QB 90% of the time. Play one minute quarters if you are having trouble.


10. It's Mine
Description: Recover a fumble, or be signed in when another player does
Gamerscore Worth: 10G
How to Earn: When big tackling the opponent, chances are he\'ll fumble the ball. Hit A to switch to the closest player and try to recover the fumble. It\'s random really, but if you are closest, chances are you\'ll recover it.


11. Better Luck Next Time
Description: Win game by a margin of 30+ points, or be signed in when another player does
Gamerscore Worth: 15G
How to Earn: Keep ahead of the opposing team by at least 30 points. If you are playing on Easy, you should have no trouble preventing the other team from scoring at all. Rack up your points and the achievement unlocks at the end of the game.


12. Ground Delivery
Description: Run 200+ yards in one game, or be signed in when another player does
Gamerscore Worth: 25G
How to Earn: On offense, keep choosing "Ace" then "Toss." Keep running that play until you have over 200 yards. Follow the strategy for Lightning Fast!. You can check your stats when you press the Start Button.


13. I'll Take That
Description: Intercept the ball, or be signed in when another player does
Gamerscore Worth: 5G
How to Earn: When the opposing QB passes a ball, press A to switch to the closest player and press Y to jump to catch it (if you are near it). The most consistent way of doing this one I have found is by using two controllers. Select "Cover" then "Prevent" for the defense and select "Shotgun" then "Flags" for offense. Before you have offense hike the ball select your defender furthest to the right. Hike the ball and throw it to B a little before he gets to the end of his route. It should throw it right to your defender every time, all you have to do is hit Y. If he overthrows the defender work on your timing and it should come in no time.


14. Easy Points
Description: Score a touchdown after an interception, or be signed in when another player does
Gamerscore Worth: 25G
How to Earn: Run back that interception you just got for a touchdown. Hold down Right Trigger to sprint. Use Right Joystick to juke or plow through the defenders.


15. Nice Safety!
Description: Score a safety, or be signed in when another player does
Gamerscore Worth: 10G
How to Earn: The easiest way is to give the ball up on the opponent\'s 1-3 yard line (run a 4th and Goal and don\'t get a 1st down or score a touchdown). This will cause the opposing QB to line up in the end zone. On defense, choose "Pressure" then "Spy" or "Blitz." Line up on the line and when the QB hikes the ball, run at him. Press X to tackle him for the sack and the safety.


16. Not This Time
Description: Win a blocking battle, or be signed in when another player does
Gamerscore Worth: 5G
How to Earn: This achievement is pretty much a gimme. You can try to run through defenders using Right Trigger and Right Joystick or mashing X to win a blocking battle. I got it just by running past someone without doing anything.


17. Punting Perfection
Description: Punt the ball 40+ yards and allow 0 yards on return, or be signed in when another player does
Gamerscore Worth: 15G
How to Earn: The 7th Street Brawlers and the Meadowbrook Monsters both have a 5 in Power, so give them a try (the Meadowbrook Monsters are unlocked after playing Story Mode). Here are two methods:

Get the Deep Freeze power-up, run towards your goal line, the let the AI tackle you. Make sure you are on first or second down so that they would not be expecting a punt. Select to punt the ball and as soon as the AI gets the ball and you are pretty sure it has gone 40 yards, use your freeze. Now all you need to do is tackle them before they unfreeze. A similar strategy can work with the Electroball power-up.


18. Return Specialist
Description: Return a punt for a touchdown, or be signed in when another player does
Gamerscore Worth: 10G
How to Earn: When the opposing team has to punt the ball, simply run back the punt for a touchdown. It\'s best if you already have Pablo on your team since he\'s the fastest. Chances are he will outrun everyone, but hold down Right Trigger to sprint. Use Right Joystick to juke or plow through the defenders.


19. Close Call
Description: Win a game in overtime, or be signed in when another player does
Gamerscore Worth: 10G
How to Earn: On offense, don\'t score and while on defense do not allow the opposition to score. If they do before the game ends, match their score so the game is tied at the end of the 4th quarter. Score to take the lead in overtime and prevent the opposing team from scoring and the achievement will unlock when the game ends.


20. Juke
Description: Perform a successful juke or move, or be signed in when another player does
Gamerscore Worth: 5G
How to Earn: When your player has the ball on offense (either from a running or pass play), hit Right Joystick left or right to perform a juke. He must complete the move for it to register.


21. Tough Stuff
Description: Allow less than 25 yards rushing in a half, or be signed in when another player does
Gamerscore Worth: 40G
How to Earn: Chances are that they\'ll try to do a running play every once in a while (you can tell when your cornerbacks come in towards the middle of the field). They will most likely run right, so line your player up there. When the QB hands the ball off, press X to tackle the running back. You may have to stay back a few yards until the handoff occurs. Do this for an entire half. If you\'re aiming to sack the QB every single play, this should unlock naturally.


22. Showtime
Description: Start Story Mode, or be signed in when another player does
Gamerscore Worth: 10G
How to Earn: From the main menu, select "Story." Create your character and set up your skills. After you navigate through the menus (before you play your first game), the achievement will unlock.


23. All-Stars
Description: Unlock the All-Star Team in Story Mode, or be signed in when another player does
Gamerscore Worth: 10G

24. On a Roll!

Gamerscore Worth: 25G
How to Earn: From the main menu, select "Season." First you have to set up your season. Select "8 Games," "Easy" and "1 Minute Quarters." Pick just one team (user controlled).

If you lose any games, you have to start your season over.


25. Playoffs
Description: Make the playoffs in Season Mode, or be signed in when another player does

Simply simulate through all of your games (takes a while just pressing A). Do not worry about winning your first five games (you will most likely have to actually play them). At the end of the eight games, the four top teams are left. Next are the playoffs. Since they are all user controlled, your team has made the playoffs and the achievement will unlock.


26. Champions!
Description: Win the Championship in Season Mode, or be signed in when another player does

Secret Achievements:


1. It's Me!
Description: Create a Character, or be signed in when another player does
Gamerscore Worth: 5G
How to Earn: The first thing you do in Story Mode. Simply go through the steps to create your character and when you are finished, the achievement will unlock.


2. Return Master
Description: Return a kickoff for a touchdown, or be signed in when another player does
Gamerscore Worth: 35G
How to Earn: This one takes a little bit of skill, but if you have Pablo on your team already, it should be no problem. Receive the kickoff and run towards a sideline. Hit up on the Right Joystick to barrel through the opposition while pressing Right Trigger for sprint and you should outrun everyone.


3. Coast to Coast
Description: Perform a 100+ yard play, or be signed in when another player does
Gamerscore Worth: 25G
How to Earn: When you receive a kickoff, run back towards your endzone and run out of bounds right before you cross the goal line. This will cause your QB to line up in the endzone on offense. Choose "Empty Backfield" then "Hail Mary" and throw to the Y receiver (should be Pablo if you\'ve played Story Mode). Hold Right Trigger to sprint and use Right Joystick to juke or plow through the defenders.


44. I Have The Power!
Description: Use 5 different Power-ups in one game, or be signed in when another player does
Gamerscore Worth: 10G
How to Earn: Simply hit Left Trigger to use a power-up. Repeat that four more times. You get more than five power-ups in a single game so this one should come easily. You gain power-ups from positive yards, tackles for losses, or any number of things that benefit your team. The power-ups are:

-Rock Solid: All opposing players suddenly turn into lumbering golems. This slows them down and stops them from performing many actions, but it also makes them great blockers and short-range tacklers. (Use when on defense)
-MVP: The player that uses this Power-Up turns into an instant superstar, able to make or break any tackle, outmaneuver any player, throw the perfect pass, and more! (Use when on offense)
-Ice Cream!: Who doesn\'t love ice cream? Activate this Power-Up to bring forth the ice cream truck of distraction. All but two players will scatter in chaos trying to be first in line to buy a cool treat. (Use when on defense)
-Stinky Pants: A cloud of stink envelops one of your players, which makes all other players steer clear! The gas-emitting player is unaffected by the stench and can continue to run down the field normally. (Use when on defense)
-Electroball: This shockingly effective Power-Up works differently for offense and defense. Offensive players are charged up so that any approaching tackler takes a debilitating jolt if they make contact. Defensive players send a charge through the ball, so that any ball carrier is temporarily stunned and open for an easy tackle. (Use when on defense)
-Deep Freeze: One to three players on the opposing team are frozen in their tracks for a couple of seconds. Frozen players are a super easy target for tacklers. (Use when on defense)
-Leap Frog: Having trouble getting through offensive and defensive lines? This springy Power-Up lets you go right over their heads, giving your player the ability to make one giant leap in any direction. (Use when on offense)
-Banana Peels: Bunches of banana peels suddenly litter the field, sending any runner who steps on one tumbling. Lucky for you, only the opposing team seems to slip on them. (Use when on defense)
-Twinkle Toes: The player you are controlling when you use this Power-Up gets a burst of speed that lasts for several seconds. (Use when on offense)


45. Ouch!
Description: Cause a fumble, or be signed in when another player does
Gamerscore Worth: 5G
How to Earn: Press X to perform a tackle on an opposing player. The game is random when it registers it as a "big tackle." Causing a fumble is 50/50, but if the camera switches to slow motion and does a multitude of camera angles, the chances are better. Keep trying and it will unlock pretty easily.
