Barnstormers Add Defensive Back

DES MOINES – The Iowa Barnstormers have signed defensive back Raleigh Johnson to the 2019 roster, Head Coach Dixie Wooten announced today.

Johnson (6-3, 185, Prairie View A&M) joins the Iowa Barnstormers for his rookie season with the Indoor Football League (IFL). Collegiately, Johnson began his career at the University of Texas El Paso before transferring to Prairie View A&M where he spent two years. In two seasons with the Panthers, Johnson appeared in 22 total games and collected 60 solo tackles, 35 assisted tackles, three forced fumbles, two interceptions, and one blocked kick.

"Raleigh plays with great understanding of the game and it makes him play fast," said Coach Wooten. "On film, what stood out the most is his range in coverage and the way he made tackles in the run game. He's going to add another high IQ, physical, dedicated, and skilled player to an already strong secondary."
