Jones Returns to Iowa Barnstormers
2015 First Team All-IFL LB Returns to Roster

DES MOINES - The Iowa Barnstormers have activated linebacker Javicz Jones from league transfer, Head Coach Joe Brannen announced.

Javicz Jones (6'1, 230, Mary Hardin Baylor) returns to the Iowa Barnstormers after a brief stint in the Canadian Football League (CFL). Jones was picked up by the CFL's Montreal Alouettes in February where he was given the opportunity to attend Training Camp before returning to Des Moines. In 2015, Jones saw action in all 14 Barnstormers games and finished at the top of several Barnstormers defensive categories including solo tackles (72), assists (51), total tackles (97.5), tackles for loss (14.5-37), and blocked kicks (2). Jones' efforts earned him league honors naming him to the 2015 First Team All-IFL.

Prior to leaving for the CFL, Jones saw action in the Barnstormers 2016 season opener where the team snagged their first win of the season over the Colorado Crush (56-50).

"It feels great to be back in Des Moines and with the Barnstormers," said Jones. "This feels like home to me. I'm excited to finish out the season with the team."

Jones, who has made an impact both on and off the field during his time with the Barnstormers, will return to action as the team travels to face off against in-state rivals the Cedar Rapids Titans this Saturday, May 21 at the U.S. Cellular Center. Fans can tune in on IFLLive.tv and then catch the Iowa Bowl battle in a delayed broadcast locally on Mediacom's MC22. 

The Iowa Barnstormers will return home on Friday, May 27 to take on the Sioux Falls Storm for their Annual Military Night. Tickets are on sale now for as low as $12 per seat. For more information, call the Barnstormers at (515) 633-2255 or log on to www.theiowabarnstormers.com.
