Storm Sign Experienced Offensive Lineman

by Logan Hernandez

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: The Southwest Kansas Storm, and our exclusive player signee sponsor Dodge City Dental Care would like to announce the signing of another important piece of our talented offensive line group, Chris Ferguson.  Chris stands 6’6 and 320lbs and is a native of Nassau, Bahamas.  He played football at the University of Cincinnati where he started 25 games, served as a team captain, and was voted All-American Athletic Conference in his last season.  In 2021 Chris was selected as the 27th selection in the Canadian Football League draft by the Ottawa Redblacks.  He also spent the 2023 season as a starter on the offensive line for the San Diego Strikeforce of the Indoor Football League.  We asked Coach Thomas about what he expects Chris’s contribution to be for the Storm this season and he had this to say.  “I’ve easily evaluated more than 1,000 players of varying degrees of experience in trying to develop this roster, and Chris checked a lot of boxes for me.  He’s long, intelligent, technically sound, motivated, humble, accomplished, and a good leader.  We can win football games with guys like him, and he will be a great ambassador in our community.  He has experience playing next to Desmond, and that has a value as well.  I envision Chris playing right guard all year for us, and hopefully we can put him in a position to be able to get another shot at playing outdoor football.  I’m excited that we get to share another piece of the bigger picture of the direction that our roster is moving.  So many things are happening behind the scenes, and I get excited every time we get to share new information with our fans.”  Please help the Storm franchise and Dodge City Dental Care give a big welcome Southwest Kansas welcome to Chris Ferguson.
