DES MOINES – The Iowa Barnstormers have signed defensive lineman Akheem Barton to the 2019 roster, Head Coach Dixie Wooten announced today.
Barton (6-3, 215, Prairie View A&M) joins the Iowa Barnstormers for his first season in the Indoor Football League (IFL). Collegiately, Barton played at Prairie View A&M for four years. Throughout his collegiate career, Barton appeared in 39 games with the Panthers where he collected 78 total tackles 21 tackles for loss, and 12 sacks.
