AIF Leading Tackler Returns to Stampede

November 21, 2012 - American Indoor Football (AIF) - Harrisburg Stampede News Release

HARRISBURG, PA (November 21, 2012) - Harrisburg Stampede Head Coach, Bernie Nowotarski announced today that Veteran Defensive Stand-Out Jermaine Thaxton has re-signed for the 2013 Season.

After finishing his HS football at Pottsgrove, Thax picked the West Virginia Mountaineers to continue his education and football career. After graduation, Jermaine played in the AFL, AF2, CIFL, AIFA and this past summer was a member of the Chambersburg Cardinals.

Jermaine was a top contender for 2012 League Defensive MVP. Thax compiled 48 tackles, 1.5 sacks, 4 tackles for a loss, 2 pass deflections, 2 interceptions and forced 3 safeties from his jack linebacker position. "He really studies the game and his opponent. He watches a lot of film and always shows up ready to play" commented Coach Nowotarski

Jermaine currently lives in Lemoyne Pa just outside Harrisburg. Being a veteran and a local guy is such a plus for us (the stampede). Thax is always involved with our camps and appearances and constantly gives back to the HBurg and surrounding areas.

Just a Reminder: Stampede Open-Try Out Schedule will be posted very soon on our Web Site and FB pages.
