Storm Add Ironman Type RB

by Logan Hernandez


The Southwest Kansas Storm and Dodge City Dental Care, our exclusive player signee sponsor, are excited to introduce you to our newest signee Christopher Coneway.  Christopher is a smooth and powerful running back that will transition very nicely into the “Ironman” aspect of the Arena Football League.  The 6’2 245lbs rookie hails from Riverdale, Georgia and played his college ball and received his degree from Kentucky State University before transferring and playing his senior year at St Augustine’s University in Raleigh, North Carolina.  Chris played in 20 games in his career with the Thoroughbreds and rushed for 1,040 yards on 202 carries, averaging 5.1 yards per carry and scoring 12 TD’s.  He also played in 8 games for the Falcons during his graduate senior campaign.  We had a chance to ask Coach Thomas his thoughts on Chirstopher, and he had this to say.  “Chris is a really pleasant guy to talk to talk to…Super ambitious and squared away.  I believe his skill set is an absolute perfect fit for the AFL game and what I want to be able to accomplish on offense.  He’s great at getting downhill with the football, and like most option offense fullbacks, he does a great job of rolling with the pressure to always be falling forward.  He’s light on his feet when he needs to be, violent when he needs to be, and has experience playing in different schemes.  I’m quite confident in his ability to go to the other side of the football to play some linebacker as well.  Chris is a solid addition to our roster and will be a great ambassador and role model in our community.”  Fans, please help the Storm and Dodge City Dental Care welcome Christopher Coneway to Southwest Kansas!
