Storm Sign RB Todd Sibley Jr.

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 a pivotal piece of our roster, Todd Sibley Jr.  Todd is a punishing running back with an elite burst who hails from Akron, Ohio.   He was one of the most decorated high school recruits in the country coming out of high school…Earning Under Armour All American honors, was the #1 rated RB recruit in the Midwest by Scout.com, was the #16 rated RB recruit in the entire country by ESPN, rushed for over 2,200 yards his senior year, and rushed for almost 7,500 yards in his career.   Todd received offers from schools like Ohio St, Michigan, and Kentucky but ultimately signed a letter of intent with the University of Pittsburgh.  He played in 33 career games at Pitt but decided to transfer to the University of Albany for his last season of eligibility where he rushed for 987 yards and received All Conference honors.  After exhausting his eligibility, Todd was invited to participate in the Las Vegas Raiders minicamp.  We asked Coach Thomas about how Todd fits into his offensive philosophy, and he had this to say.  “Todd has a world of talent.  His body composition allows us to use him in some traditional Arena League offensive concepts, but his skill set will allow us to think outside the box and get creative and cutting edge in other concepts.  I waited for the right guy to come into my orbit to fill this position, and Todd fits it perfectly.  I couldn’t be more excited about the way our roster is shaping up, and I’m ecstatic about adding a high caliber athlete with an even higher caliber character.”  Please help the Storm franchise and Dodge City Dental Care give a big Southwest Kansas welcome to Todd Sibley Jr.
