DES MOINES – The Iowa Barnstormers have begun building their 2021 roster with the re-signing of wide receiver Connor Hollenbeck, Head Coach Ameer Ismail announced today. 

Hollenbeck (6-6, 225, Edinboro University) returns to the Barnstormers for his second season with the team. Hollenbeck first joined the roster at the start of the 2019 season, appearing in 13 regular season games and finishing with 58 receptions for 627 yards and 14 touchdowns. Hollenbeck also appeared in the post-season.

Hollenbeck had signed on with the Barnstormers for the 2020 season, making the final roster before the season's cancellation amid the Covid-19 pandemic.

Prior to joining the Iowa Barnstormers, Hollenbeck spent two seasons with the Cedar Rapids Titans (now River Kings), where he appeared in a total of 28 games collecting 101 receptions and 25 touchdowns. At the end of the 2018 season, Hollenbeck was named Second Team All-IFL Receiver.

Collegiately, Hollenbeck spent played four years at Edinboro University appearing at both wide receiver and punter. Hollenbeck completed his collegiate career with 33 receptions for 330 yards and one touchdown.

"I am excited to get back on the field and see what our team is made of," said Hollenbeck. "We were clicking very well during camp last year and I'm excited to see the same energy in 2021." 

The team's 2020 roster had completed Training Camp and was preparing for their first game when news of the season's postponement broke, ultimately leading to it's cancellation. 

"We got to know one another and go through one of the toughest parts of the season, which is camp. A lot of team chemistry was built and a lot of people's true character was shown," said Hollenbeck. "We all have a better understanding of each other and the indoor game." 

Hollenbeck is the first player to join the team's 2021 Training Camp roster.
