Iowa Rampage

Location: Council Bluffs, IA

Arena Name and Capacity: Mid-America Center, 6,793

Head Coach: Tyus Jackson

Key Signings

Chris Elmore - FB/LB Syracuse

The two-way player will make his professional football debut after being a six-year letterman and appearing in 53 games in his time at Syracuse. Listed at 6-1 and 280 pounds, Elmore is the definition of a “bigger back." His 280-pound frame should transition well to playing both ways in the Arena Football League as a linebacker as well as fullback.

Quandreko Statham - WR/DB Dodge City Community College

Quandreko, or Dreko, Statham has a wealth of Arena Football experience. He spent last season with the Bismarck Bucks of the IFL. Before his stop in the IFL, Statham also played a season with the Southwest Storm of the Champions Indoor Football League. His real value may be on the defensive side of the ball where he has ball-hawking tendencies.

Marquis Burks - OL/DL Auburn

Iowa added legitimate SEC size with the signing of the 6-3, 314 pound Marquis Burks. Burks, who played DT in college at Auburn and was a three-year letterman at the position accumulating three career sacks and 4.5 career tackles for loss, will also be presented with the challenge of playing both ways now in the Arena Football League.

Franchise History

The Arena Football League’s 2024 relaunch won't be without a franchise in a state that is known for Arena Football. The Iowa Rampage of Council Bluffs, IA makes their debut as an AFL franchise in the AFL 2024 reboot.
