Colorado Ice Signs 4 Standouts for Playoffs
Fort Collins, CO- The Colorado Ice are proud to announce the signings of four veteran players each with NFL experience. The players are Reggie Sullivan, Tommie Duhart, Augustine Agyei, and Lorne Sam.
Sullivan is a 6'2", 215 lb defensive back from Johnson C. Smith University. After a strong college career at JCSU and Winston-Salem University, Sullivan spent some time playing arena football before being signed by the Carolina Panthers in 2009. Sullivan obviously left a mark on the staff with the Panthers, as after a strong finish to the 2011 IFL season, he was signed to a futures contract with Carolina for the 2012 season. Sullivan is no stranger to the IFL as he has spent time with the Green Bay Blizzard and most recently with the Sioux Falls Storm. In his seven games with the Storm last season, Sullivan accumulated 27 tackles and 5 pass break-ups; helping lead Sioux Falls to the 2012 IFL Championship. Including his NFL, IFL, and AF2 experience, Sullivan also has some CFL experience as he spent some time with the Toronto Argonauts.
Duhart is a 6'4", 310 lb defensive tackle from Valdosta State University, who was rated as the 49th best defensive tackle prospect for the 2010 draft class. Duhart played his senior season at Valdosta State University where he made a name for himself, accumulating 20 tackles, 2 tackles for loss, and 2 sacks. After his senior season, Duhart gained interest from numerous NFL teams, resulting in him signing with the Carolina Panthers and spending the 2010 season on their practice squad. Before Valdosta State, Duhart spent two seasons at the University of Pittsburgh, where he accumulated 27 tackles, 5 tackles for loss, 1 sack, and 2 forced fumbles. Duhart was signed earlier in the season but ended up being provided opportunities to play in the AFL with the Pittsburgh Power and Orlando Predators before re-signing with the Ice this week.
Agyei is a 6'0", 185 lb wide receiver from Colorado State Pueblo, who was rated as the 157th best wide receiver prospect for the 2010 draft class. Agyei only played one season at CSUP, but made an impact right away as he accumulated 34 receptions, 547 receiving yards, 7 receiving touchdowns, 17 rushing yards, and 27 kick returns for 696 yards and 1 touchdown. Agyei's 1,261 All-Purpose yards, ranks him 3rd all time in CSUP single-season history. His big play ability was noticed by many teams, as after his senior season he received a tryout opportunity with the Cincinnati Bengals of the NFL. Agyei is also no stranger to indoor football as he spent the beginning of the season with the Utah Blaze of the AFL. One major reason for him earning an opportunity with the Blaze was his 4.25 and 4.31 forty yard dash times that he ran at their tryout.
Sam is a 6'3", 215 lb quarterback/wide receiver from UTEP and Florida State, who was rated as the 72nd best WR prospect in the 2008 draft class. In his two seasons at UTEP, Sam played in 18 games, accumulating 430 rushing yards, 4 rushing touchdowns, 54 receptions, 761 receiving yards, 1 receiving touchdown, 144 passing yards, and 3 passing touchdowns. Sam was one of the most dynamic threats in UTEP history and was rewarded for his effort as he was invited to the NFL combine after his senior season. Sam put up some very impressive numbers at the NFL combine, resulting in him being signed to a contract with the Denver Broncos and later with the Green Bay Packers. Sam also comes to the Ice with IFL experience as he also finished the 2011 season with a championship win in Sioux Falls. While with Sioux Falls, Sam played in 5 games, accumulating 19 passing yards, 12 rushing yards, and 24 yards receiving with 1 touchdown.
