In honor of the IFL's 10th Anniversary season, the IFL is counting down the top ten IFL players of all-time. Coming in at #3 is IFL Hall of Fame RB Laron Council
An All-American at Northwest Missouri State University, Council's Indoor Football League career began in 2011 with the La Crosse Spartans. In his rookie campaign, Council set team records with 177 attempts for 640 yards and 13 TDs. The following season, as a member of the Green Bay Blizzard, proved to be Council's most successful as a pro. Council set multiple single season IFL rushing records, including; attempts (256), yards (1,040), and touchdowns (32). He led the Blizzard to an 11-3 regular season record and appearance in the 2012 United Conference Championship Game.
The final two years of Council amazing career were spent with the Cedar Rapids Titans. During the 2013 and 2014 IFL seasons Council rushed for 1,307 yards and 37 TDs. His efforts helped propel the team back-to-back playoff appearance (the first ever postseason berths for the Titans). During his four-year career, Council was a three-time First Team All-IFL selection. He is the All-Time IFL Leading Rusher with 2,987 yards and ranks fourth all-time with 81 rushing TDs.
