Wide Receiver Carrington Thompson Re-signs for 2021
DES MOINES "" The Iowa Barnstormers have re-signed wide receiver Carrington Thompson to the 2021 roster, Head Coach Ameer Ismail announced today.
Thompson (6'3, 185, Western Michigan) joins the Iowa Barnstormers for his first season with the team and the Indoor Football League (IFL). Collegiately, Thompson began his career at Northwood University where he spent two seasons. During his time with the Timberwolves, Thompson appeared in 20 games and collected 89 receptions for 1,210 yards, and 10 touchdowns. Thompson transferred to Western Michigan University for his final two seasons appearing in a total of 26 games and collecting 50 receptions for 726 yards and 8 touchdowns.
No stranger to the indoor game, Thompson spent the 2018 and 2019 seasons with the West Michigan Ironmen earning Offensive Rookie of the Year in 2018.
Thompson initially joined the Barnstormers for the 2020 season, making the team's final roster before the season was canceled due to the Covid-19 pandemic. With the season's abrupt ending, Thompson and his teammates never had the opportunity to play in front of the Barnstormers loyal fanbase.
"I look forward to meeting all of the Iowa Barnstormers great fans to bring the excitement back to Wells Fargo Arena," Thompson said. "I also want to make sure we don't let our community down and give them a season to remember."
Thompson will join the team's 2021 Training Camp in the spring.
