Former NFL Player, Wichita Native Mack Returns to Force for 2016

December 23, 2015 - Champions Indoor Football (CIF) - Wichita Force News Release

WICHITA, Kan. - The Wichita Force announced today that former NFL CB Elbert Mack has signed to play for the Force in 2016.

In the 2015 season, Mack played in four games for the Force where he recorded 12 solo tackles and five assisted. He also racked up one interception for 22 yards and one recovered fumble for two yards.

Unfortunately, due to requirements for obtaining his barber license and working to open his own barber shop, Midwest Blends, Mack left the Force midway through the season to finish his commitments.

"Last year I had so much going on, I felt like it forced me out of football with the team," Mack said. "But this year is a new year and my personal things are all good and running. I'm ready to focus on winning a championship for the city of Wichita. No. 43 is back. "

A Wichita, Kan. native and graduate of Wichita North High School, Mack played two seasons at Butler Community College before transferring to Troy University. In his senior year at Troy, Mack earned first-team All-Sun Belt honors while leading the NCAA with eight interceptions.

In 2008, Mack signed with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers as an undrafted free agent where he spent four seasons. He later spent one season each with the New Orleans Saints and Houston Texans before returning to Wichita. Mack finished his NFL career with six interceptions for 156 yards and two touchdowns. He also recorded 99 solo tackles and 18 assisted in his total 81 games played.

Now through December 31, season tickets can be purchased at the 2015 pricing by calling 316-425-3009. For more information on the Force, visit, like the team on Facebook or follow them on Twitter (@wichitaforce).
