New Orleans, LA – The Iowa Barnstormers are proud to announce that Head Coach Mike Hohensee has been elected to the Arena Football League’s Hall of Fame. The announcement was made official by AFL Commissioner Jerry Kurz during halftime of Avitae ArenaBowl XXV in New Orleans on Friday night. 
Hohensee joins six others in the class of 2012 including QB’s Sherdrick Bonner and Clint Doelzel, DB Clevan Thomas, WR/DB Randy Gatewood, Head Coach Mike Dailey and Founding Partner William Nero. “I am truly blessed by this great honor”, stated Hohensee. “The Arena Football League has been part of my life for 25 years and I am proud to have had the opportunity to play with and coach some of the greats of this game”.
Hohensee recently completed his first season with the Barnstormers, leading a young group of players to a 7-11 record.  He boasts an extensive career of both playing and coaching in the AFL. He is known to the only player/coach who has been part of the league in some capacity for all 25 seasons.
