 Upper Iowa Duo Returns to Barnstormers
Iowa Barnstormers Sign WR Lucas Hefty and DB Chayz Holt

DES MOINES - The Iowa Barnstormers have signed two former Upper Iowa University Peacocks with wide receiver Lucas Hefty and defensive back Chayz Holt, Head Coach Dixie Wooten announced today.

Hefty (6-4, 235, Upper Iowa University) returns to the Iowa Barnstormers for his third season with the team and in the Indoor Football League (IFL). Collegiately, Hefty played at Upper Iowa University where he was a four-year letter winner. During his four years at Upper Iowa, Hefty caught 176 passes for 2,213 yards and 23 touchdowns. In his senior season, Hefty won All-NSIC South Division First Team. Hefty first joined the Barnstormers roster late in the 2015 season, appearing in 3 games. Last season, Hefty saw action as wide receiver and running back. In 15 games, Hefty scored nine receiving touchdowns and six rushing touchdowns.

"I love physical football players and Hefty brings that to our receiving group," said Coach Wooten. "He's a guy that's a major red zone threat and that's big to have in the indoor game."

Holt (6-1, 200, Upper Iowa University) returns to the Iowa Barnstormers for his second season in the Indoor Football League (IFL). Collegiately, Holt played two years at Upper Iowa University. In 22 games, Holt recorded 73 total tackles, 29 pass deflections, and 11 interceptions. Holt was named to the 2014 All-NSIC first team and 2014 Third Team All-Super Region Team. Holt spent his rookie IFL season with the Barnstormers in 2016, appearing in 14 games where he collected 55 total tackles and 10 pass breakups.

"Holt finished the season playing some good football," said Coach Wooten. "He will bring hard work and understanding of the game to camp."

Both former Upper Iowa Peacocks will join the Barnstormers 2017 training camp in February.
