Barnstormers Sign Defensive Lineman

DES MOINES – The Iowa Barnstormers have signed defensive lineman Francis Nouvi to the 2018 roster, Head Coach Dixie Wooten announced today.

Nouvi (6-4, 275, N/A) joins the Iowa Barnstormers for his rookie season in the Indoor Football League (IFL). Nouvi found other ways to train for football earning himself a spot at the University of Alabama's NFL Pro Day despite never playing there. In 2017 Nouvi participated with the Spring League, an instructional league meant to showcase professional football talent. Nouvi appeared in all three Spring League games becoming the sack leader, the only player to record multiple sacks in one game, and defensive player of the game.

Nouvi joins the Iowa Barnstormers to continue his journey to the NFL.

"Francis will bring our defense explosion off the ball, speed, and a great motor," said Coach Wooten. He is a very physical player. I expect him to come to camp and show his pass rushing skills. He will come in focused and hungry with a lot to prove."
