Sugar Skulls Bolster Defense with Three New Signings

September 3, 2020 - Indoor Football League (IFL) - Tucson Sugar Skulls News Release

TUCSON - The Tucson Sugar Skulls have announced the signing of three new players for the 2021 IFL season. The three newly signed players include linebacker T.T. Barber, and defensive backs Pat Porter and Justin Wyatt.

LB Trevonti "T.T." Barber (6', 225, Middle Tennessee State University) played in 47 games at Middle Tennessee State University, starting in 41 consecutive games to finish his career with the Blue Raiders. In four seasons, the two-time First Team All-C-USA selection totaled 323 total tackles (213 solo, 110 assisted), including 34 for a loss, as well as eight sacks, seven interceptions and six forced fumbles. By the end of his career at MTSU, Barber ranked fourth in school history in both total tackles and tackles for a loss.

DB Pat Porter (5'10", 180, Washington State) will join the Sugar Skulls for his first season in the Indoor Football League. After spending just over a year playing football for Washington State University, the Tuscaloosa, Alabama native transferred to Jacksonville State University, where he played in 22 games over two years and amassed 32 total tackles and four pass breakups. After Porter's redshirt-junior year, he then transferred to St. Mary's University in Nova Scotia, Canada. While Porter was ineligible to play due to a discrepancy with the Canadian rules, he was still able to practice with the school's football team and even despite his ineligibility, was invited to play in the Podyum Bowl.

DB Justin Wyatt (6'2", 200, Troy University) joins the Sugar Skulls for his rookie season in the Indoor Football League. Collegiately, the Atlanta, Georgia native began his career at Ohio University and Los Angeles Pierce College, before landing at Troy University for two seasons. During his junior season at Troy University, Wyatt appeared in ten games as a receiver and was unable to complete his senior football season due to an injury. Wyatt then went on to finish his college career at Limestone College, appearing in 10 games where he collected 20 total tackles, 1.5 tackles for a loss, one sack and one interception.
