Six Barnstormers Earn All-Indoor Football League Honors
Barnstormers Named First and Second Team Selections

DES MOINES – Concluding the 2019 Indoor Football League regular season, six Iowa Barnstormers players have been selected to All-IFL teams, the league announced today. Wide receiver Ryan Balentine, Quarterback Daquan Neal, and defensive back Tyrell Pearson earned First Team selection, while linebacker Treyvon Williams along with offensive linemen Oliver Lumpkin and DJ Loving were named to the second team.

After winning it all in 2018, the defending United Bowl Champions had another successful season finishing the regular season 12-2. Just falling short of their second Championship appearance, the Barnstormers had a lot to be proud of with an all-star team. The deadly combination of quarterback Daquan Neal and wide receiver Ryan Balentine helped both earn First Team All-IFL recognition. Defensive back Tyrell Pearson tied for the league lead in interceptions and also earned First Team recognition. Offensive linemen DJ Loving and Oliver Lumpkin were named as Second Team selections along with standout linebacker Treyvon Williams.
