Storm Sign Standout WR

by Logan Hernandez

The Southwest Kansas Storm, and our exclusive player signee sponsor Dodge City Dental Care would like to announce the signing of a dynamic playmaker, Marcell Barbee.  Marcell is a 6’1 wide receiver who hails from Pueblo, Colorado where he was a 2-time all-state selection out of Pueblo South High School.  After high school he went on to play for Iowa Western Community College where he caught 52 passes for 1,042 yards and 13 TD’s.  Marcell was just scratching the surface of his potential at IWCC, and earned a scholarship to play for Texas State University where he had a mind blowing 101 catches for 1,403 yards and 16TD’s through his 32 games played.  He twice led the Bobcats in catches, was a 2 time All Sun Belt Conference selection, and finished his career in the top 10 in school history in receptions and TD’s.   We asked Coach Thomas about his thoughts on Marcell, and he had this to say.  “Marcell is elite…Elite at tracking the football, elite at changing the pace of his routes and stemming defenders, has elite work ethic, and I fully expect him to be elite in the Arena game.  He was coached in college by a very close friend of mine and received glowing reviews in every aspect of the evaluation process.  In all honesty, he is a guy that we will be lucky to get one season out of, because he will be back to playing outdoor football soon.  We’re just going to provide the platform for him to showcase his skill set.”  Please help the Storm franchise and Dodge City Dental Care give an elite Southwest Kansas welcome to Marcell Barbee.
