With less than 2 months before the 2019 season begins, the Omaha eef are excited to announce the following players have signed for the upcoming 20th anniversary season.
After a long off-season for the Omaha Beef, they find a familiar face to suit up again in the orange and black. Antonio Ficklin returns to the Beef for the 2019 season after stepping away for a year. In 2017, his last season with the Beef, Ficklin finished with 27 total tackles, 11 assists, 9.5 sacks, and 12.5 tackles for loss. Ficklin has unfinished business in the CIF, and is ready to help lead the Beef back to the championship game for 2019.
As a rookie last year in the IFL, Kwamie Bell had an outstanding year averaging 4.2 tackles per game. Omaha Beef Assistant Head Coach & Defensive Coordinator Marvin Jones stated the “Bell is a hard working player and we are lucky to have him on our sidelines instead of our opponents. He is relentless in his pursuit and can really bring pressure every single down”. Prior to his professional career, he played college football at Virginia Union University and Clarion University.
Olukayode Akinmoladun, “Junebug” is a returning fan favorite from last year’s team where he helped anchor the offensive line for the Omaha Beef. Omaha Beef Head Coach James Kerwin on Junebug returning for 2019: “Many people underestimate the importance of having a good center in the indoor game. Having Junebug back really provided a comfort level that we won’t have those issues as he is a technically sound and dominant player at position of importance”. Prior to playing for the Omaha Beef, he played at the University of Kearney at Nebraska, then played with Texas Revolution of the CIF in 2017.
