DES MOINES – The Iowa Barnstormers have signed defensive lineman Collin Bevins to the 2019 roster, Head Coach Dixie Wooten announced today.

Bevins (6-4, 275, Northwest Missouri State), a native of Creston, Iowa, joins the Barnstormers for his first season in the Indoor Football League (IFL). Bevins began his collegiate career as a redshirt freshman at Iowa State University before transferring to Northwest Missouri University. Bevins had an impressive career with the Bearcats appearing in 52 total games over the course of four years.
