Salina Liberty Adds Offensive Line
Isaiah Trussell, who spent last season as a member of the Racine (Wis.) Raiders in the Mid-States Football League, will be part of the Salina Liberty's offensive line in 2019.
Prior to his first year as a professional, the 6-foot-3, 320-pound Trussell was a four-year starter for NCAA Division III Carthage College in Kenosha, Wis., where he earned first-team all-conference honors as a junior and senior.
Trussell starred at Case High School in Racine from 2011-13.
Trussell and his Liberty teammates will report to Salina on March 1, with the first practice on March 5. Salina opens its fourth season on March 16 with a preseason game against KC Marshals at Tony's Pizza Event Center, followed by a regular season road game at Amarillo on March 23.
Salina will be part of the CIF's Northern Conference with the Wichita Force, Sioux City Bandits and Omaha Beef. The Southern Conference features the Amarillo Venom, Oklahoma Flying Aces, Duke City Gladiators and Texas Revolution. The Liberty will play a 12-game regular season schedule in 2019.
