Covaliu Returns to Iowa Barnstormers 
Iowa Barnstormers Re-sign RB Elad Covaliu

DES MOINES – Running back Elad Covaliu is returning to the Iowa Barnstormers for the 2021 season, Head Coach Ameer Ismail announced today.

Covaliu (5-10, 205, Saint Anselm College) joins the Iowa Barnstormers for his first season with the team. Covaliu began his collegiate career at College of the Holy Cross before transferring to Saint Anselm College. In two years with the Hawks, Covaliu rushed 328 times for 1,627 yards, and 16 touchdowns receiving 52 times for 364 yards and one touchdown. Covaliu also earned honors on the Northeast 10 All-Conference Team and the JSR All-American Team.

Following college, Covaliu spent a season with the Bloomington Edge of the CIF before attending a minicamp with the CFL’s BC Lions.

Covaliu had initially joined the Iowa Barnstormers in 2020, where he experienced a full training camp and earned a spot on the team's final 25-man roster, before the unexpected cancellation of the season.

"Due to the unfortunate circumstances this year, I am excited to simply get back on the field again in 2021," said Covaliu. "I'll be itching to put the pads back on as I'm sure most of my teammates will be as well. I'm looking forward to putting on a show for all of our fans in the 2021 season to make up for lost time."

Covaliu will return to Des Moines for the Iowa Barnstormers 2021 Training Camp in the spring.

More information regarding the Iowa Barnstormers 2021 season will be available soon. Keep up with the team on social media @iabarnstormers for the latest updates.
