DES MOINES – As the year comes to a close, the Indoor Football League (IFL) has compiled a list of the Top Ten Players from the 2016 season. Kicking off the countdown, the IFL announced that Iowa Barnstormers wide receiver Brady Roland has been listed at Number 10.   

Roland is coming off one of the most successful seasons of any wide receiver in IFL history. Catch after catch and first down after first down, Roland proved to not only be a reliable target, but an incredibly dangerous asset to the Barnstormers offense.

Roland led the IFL in receptions throughout the 2016 season, racking up 95 receptions for 1,085 receiving yards which ranked him second in the league. Roland's efforts helped the Barnstormers' passing attack to also place second in the league. Roland scored 22 touchdowns over the season, placing him fourth highest in the league.

In his two-year career in the IFL, Roland has caught 148 passes for 1,749 yards and 36 touchdowns. Following both seasons, Roland was named as an All-IFL selection, being named to the First Team in 2016.

Roland will continue to bring his abilities to the Barnstormers as he has re-signed with the team for the 2017 season.
