Clark Returns to Barnstormers for 2021

Clark Returns to Barnstormers
WR Brandynn Clark signs on to Barnstormers roster for 2021 season

DES MOINES – Wide receiver Brandynn Clark is returning to the Iowa Barnstormers for the 2021 season, Head Coach Ameer Ismail announced today.

Clark (5-9, 165, Missouri Western) joins the Iowa Barnstormers for his first season with the team and third season in the Indoor Football League (IFL). During the 2019 season, Clark appeared in six games with the Bismarck Bucks where he collected 15 receptions for 250 yards and five touchdowns. Clark first joined the IFL in 2018 appearing in four games with the Sioux Falls Storm. He spent his rookie indoor season with the Bloomington Edge of the CIF.

Clark originally signed with the Barnstormers for the 2020 season, earning a spot on the final 25-man roster before the season's cancellation due to the COVID-19 pandemic. 

Collegiately, Clark began his career at Iowa Central Community College before transferring to Missouri Western State University. During his two years with the Griffons, Clark collected 53 total receptions for 658 yards and four touchdowns. Excelling as a punt returner, Clark led the Mid-America Intercollegiate Athletics Association (MIAA) in punt return average with 14.3 yards per return in 2015. Clark also received honors as Second Team All-MIAA and Third Team Don Hansen All Region as a punt returner.

After an intense two-week training camp, the Iowa Barnstormers were gearing up for the first game of 2020 when the season was postponed and then ultimately canceled.

"During camp I focused a lot on the details of my game," said Clark. "Coming in in early, leaving late, working on little stuff that contributes in a big way."

With the season unexpectedly ending before it began, players have had extra time to prepare to hit the field again. When asked how he has kept in shape during quarantine, Clark said:

"Training wise I have an in-home gym and access to my high school field so I've been back and forth between here and there. I'll load one month with weights, then another with field work so it stays balanced." 

Clark will return to Des Moines for the Iowa Barnstormers 2021 Training Camp in the spring. 

Details regarding the Iowa Barnstormers 2021 season will be available soon. Keep up with the team on social media @iabarnstormers .
