Barnstormers Begin Building Roster
RB Jamal Tyler Returns to Barnstormers

DES MOINES – The Iowa Barnstormers have signed their first player of the 2019 season. Running back Jamal Tyler will return to the Barnstormers roster in 2019, Head Coach Dixie Wooten announced today.

“What stood out to me the most about Jamal is his work ethic,” said Coach Wooten. “He ran hard, but the way he played special teams was amazing. He plays a big part on the kickoff team running downfield and making big plays. At running back he was a force to be reckoned with.”

Tyler (5’10, 184, Pittsburg State University) first joined the Iowa Barnstormers in 2018 after being signed from the team’s open tryout. Tyler continued to impress the coaching staff throughout the season, earning a starting spot in 6 games during the regular season where he collected four rushing touchdowns and contributed heavily to special teams. Tyler shined during the United Bowl Championship when he scored a touchdown with just 13 seconds remaining in the game, sealing the team’s victory over the Sioux Falls Storm.

Collegiately, Tyler played one season at Garden City Community College where he appeared in 10 games and collected 16 touchdowns before transferring to Pittsburg State University. In 2014, Tyler joined the Gorillas roster starting in four of 13 games where he carried the ball 74 times for a team-leading 451 yards and two touchdowns. In 2015, Tyler appeared in 8 games where he carried the ball 19 times for 195 yards and two touchdowns. Proving his speed to be a major asset on the football field, it was no surprise that Tyler was a dual athlete also participating on the men’s track and field team.

“Jamal understands how to be a Champion,” Coach Wooten noted. “He understands how we do things and how to work to be successful. I’m looking for Jamal to come in and start right where he finished. He’s going to be special.”

More roster announcements will be made in the next week.
