Palmgren Returns to Barnstormers
Offensive Lineman Jayson Palmgren joins the Iowa Barnstormers

DES MOINES – The Iowa Barnstormers have signed offensive lineman Jayson Palmgren, Head Coach Dixie Wooten announced today. Palmgren (6-3, 370, University of Missouri) returns to the Iowa Barnstormers as a veteran on the offensive line. Palmgren first joined the Barnstormers in the Arena Football League (AFL) in 2012 for his rookie season, seeing action in eight games. In 2013, Palmgren wore the goggles once again appearing in five games before suffering a season ending injury. Palmgren began the 2014 season as a member of the Pittsburgh Power roster before returning to the Barnstormers midway through the season. He then went on to play for the Cleveland Gladiators in 2015, starting in 10 games.

Collegiately, Palmgren was a four year standout at the University of Missouri appearing in 47 games and making 25 starts at left guard. He was the anchor of an offensive line that helped rack up more than 30 points and 400 yards per agme during his final two seasons.

“Signing Jayson is huge for us,” said Coach Wooten. “It keeps us going in the right direction. He’s a big time veteran o-lineman with a high football IQ.”

Palmgren is happy to be returning to Des Moines for another season. “It’s great to be back in a city that always welcomes me,” said Palmgren. “I look forward to getting back on the field and bringing a championship to Des Moines.”

Season Tickets for the Iowa Barnstormers 2017 season are still available! For as low as $80 per seat, fans can enjoy the action from the same great seat location each game. For more information, call the Barnstormers at (515) 633-2255 or log on to www.theiowabarnstormers.com.
