All Arena League Quarterback To Join Barnstormers

02/03/2010 10:25 AM -

DES MOINES - In the franchise's biggest off-season acquisition, Iowa Barnstormers Head Coach John Gregory today announced that the team will have veteran signal-caller and All-Pro QB Ryan Vena under center as the Barnstormers prepare for the 2010 Arena Football One season.

 Vena, a nine-year veteran of both the AFL and af2, most notably led the Wilkes Barre-Scranton Pioneers to the af2 championship in 2007 and was named not only the Arena Cup MVP, but also the league's Offensive Player of the Year after throwing for 92 touchdowns and only nine interceptions.
 
"Ryan is a winner and a key piece to bringing an arena football championship to Des Moines," said Gregory. "We have a talented group of returning starters and free agents coming to training camp in March and I cannot wait for Barnstormers fans to see these players on the field."
 
Vena (6-0, 225) began his arena football career with the Albany Conquest in 2002 after a decorated collegiate career at Colgate University, where he was named Patriot League Player of the Year a remarkable three times. Following two seasons with the af2's Conquest, Vena won the starting QB position with the AFL's Columbus Destroyers, where he threw for 57 touchdowns in 2004.  In 2006, Vena returned to Albany, where he set an af2 league record throwing for 4,520 yards. The following season saw him begin a three-year stint with the af2 Pioneers in which he led the team to three consecutive division titles and was a three-time selection to the af2 All-Conference First Team.
 
The 2010 Arena Football One season is just weeks away. The Barnstormers open the 2010 campaign at home April 3 against the Chicago Rush. Iowa Barnstormers season tickets remain on sale for as low as $104.00 per seat. Call 515-633-2255 or visit www.theiowabarnstormers.com for more information.
