DES MOINES - The Iowa Barnstormers have signed defensive back Jeremy Gloston to the 2018 roster, Head Coach Dixie Wooten announced today.
Gloston (6-2, 207, Elon University) joins the Iowa Barnstormers for his rookie season with the Indoor Football League (IFL). Collegiately, Gloston played four years at Elon University beginning his career in 2013 as a true freshman where he appeared in 11 games. Gloston completed his career with the Phoenix with 105 tackles, three tackles for loss, four passes defended, and three blocked kicks.
Gloston joins the Iowa Barnstormers after attending the team's tryout at the Pella Fieldhouse in November. Gloston is the third player to receive an invitation to the Barnstormers Training Camp following the open tryout.
'Watching Jeremy at the tryout showed me he was a safety that can play man-to-man against fast receivers,' said Coach Wooten. 'If he can catch on to the speed of the indoor game at training camp, he could help us a lot in the secondary. I expect him to come in and learn everything we will teach him to be a better player. He could shock a lot of people.'
