Iowa Barnstormers Sign QB Brion Carnes

DES MOINES - The Iowa Barnstormers have re-signed former University of Northern Iowa quarterback Brion Carnes to the 2017 roster, Head Coach Dixie Wooten announced today.

Carnes (6-1, 205, University of Northern Iowa) is entering his third year as a member of the Indoor Football League (IFL). Before joining the IFL, Carnes played collegiately at the University of Northern Iowa where he saw action at quarterback, running back, kick returner, and punt returner. Over the 2014 season, Carnes passed for 1,182 yards and six touchdowns while rushing for 314 yards and four touchdowns. Carnes made his IFL debut when he joined the Nebarska Danger late in the 2015 season, starting in one game where he threw for five touchdowns and rushed for two touchdowns. Last season, Carnes appeared in 11 games with the Barnstormers where he maintained his athletic versatility seeing action at quarterback, running back, and defensive back. As quarterback, Carnes ended the season throwing for 19 touchdowns and rushing for six touchdowns.

"Signing Brion is big because we wanted to get our quarterback position settled early. He's a dual threat that does great things with his feet and also his arm," said Coach Wooten. "We look for Brion to do some great things for us on the football field and in the community this year."

Carnes is ready to return for another season of indoor football. "I'm excited about this upcoming season," Carnes said. "It will be one to remember, for sure. Time to get back to what 'Barnstormer Nation' used to be."
