Barnstormers Make Mid-Season Roster Changes

DES MOINES – The Iowa Barnstormers of the Indoor Football League have made mid-season additions to the team’s roster, prior to their Week 10 matchup versus the Sioux Falls Storm.

The Iowa Barnstormers announced Thursday the additions of three new faces to their roster, quarterback Taylor Genuser, defensive back Isaiah Gresham, and offensive lineman Evyn Perry. Other recent transactions include the re-signing of wide receiver Julian Williams, who saw action in all eighteen games with the Barnstormers during the 2014 season. Defensive back Kelvin Gilkey and offensive lineman Tyler Ahrens, both of Grand View University, along with running back Robbie Rouse were all signed in Week 6 while receiver Johnny Thomas was brought in the week prior.

Genuser (6-2, 210, New Mexico Highlands) joins the Iowa Barnstormers after spending time with the Duke City Gladiators of the Lone Star Football League (LSFL) and the Billings Wolves of the IFL. Starting out the 2015 IFL season with the Wolves, Genuser saw action in two games where he completed 27 of 50 passing attempts for 200 yards and three touchdowns. The California native was part of the 2014 Champion Erie Explosion team.

Williams (6-1, 195, Marian) returns to the Iowa Barnstormers roster after spending time with the Orlando Predators (Arena Football League) during their 2015 training camp. In 2014, Williams played an important role on the Barnstormers offense with 71 receptions for 690 yards and eight touchdowns. Rouse (5-6, 190, Fresno State) previously played with the Nebraska Danger before joining the Iowa Barnstormers roster. In two games with the Danger, Rouse tallied 17 rushing attempts for 61 yards and a touchdown. At Fresno State, he set the record for first player to have three 1,000-yard seasons. In 2013, Rouse was signed by the Cleveland Browns of the National Football League (NFL).
