Iowa Barnstormers Sign Former Cyclone
DES MOINES - The Iowa Barnstormers have signed former Iowa State Cyclone running back Aaron Wimberly, Head Coach Joe Brannen announced today.
Wimberly (5-10, 185, Iowa State) joins the Iowa Barnstormers for his rookie season in the Indoor Football League (IFL). Collegiately, Wimberly played two years at Iowa State University after transferring from Iowa Western. A stand out running back, Wimberly led the Cyclones in rushing (567 yards) and yards per carry (4.0; 141 carries) during the 2013 season despite missing two games due to injury. In 2014, Wimberly started in all 11 games with Iowa State where he led the team in rushing for the second consecutive season (642 yards). Wimberly ranks second in Cyclone history with his career 26.45 kickoff return average.
"Adding Aaron is a big addition to our roster. He has the ideal skill set to thrive in the indoor game. I see him making a big impact on our offense, whether it be carrying the ball from the backfield or down the field as a receiver," said Coach Brannen. "He is an extremely versatile player who has proven success returning kicks as well. After following his great career just up the road in Ames, fans will be excited to see him continue making plays right here in Des Moines."
