Bloomington, IL. – The Bloomington Edge have re-signed linebacker Dontae McCoy. The former Illinois State starter is in his third year with the Edge and has been a stalwart on defense the past two season.
In 2017, McCoy anchored a top-two defense in the Champions Indoor Football League (CIF), finishing with 53 total tackles, two sacks, and one interception.
First year Edge head coach Nick Rudd is excited to have McCoy back with the Edge.
"He understands how to get where he needs to be in coverage and plays down hill in the run game, he is an outstanding linebacker," said Ruud.
Playing his football collegiately at Illinois State, he knows what the community means to the Edge.
"This is a great community, as far as the way the support of the fans have. It's a good feeling to be two hours away from home from Chicago," McCoy reflected. "To be able to play football the sport, is definitely gratifying and something I don't take for granted."
The Bloomington Edge and McCoy are excited for the 2018 schedule, which has been released. Season tickets, flex ticket packages, and group events are on sale now. For more information please contact the Edge at (484)-840-EDGE or visit them online at www.bloomingtonedge.net.
