The Pittsburgh Power have been assigned wide receiver Lonnell DeWalt.
DeWalt is a huge red zone target, standing 6-foot, 6-inches, and has a knack for showing up on the scoresheet. He caught a touchdown in all but one game in 2011, totaling 45 receptions for 489 yards and 21 touchdowns. He also shifted to the defensive side of the ball midway through the season and added four interceptions and two forced fumbles.
DeWalt fit the role of a true Ironman, something that has become a rarity in the Arena Football League these days. He is a guy that can play almost anywhere on the field and have an impact.
Power fans will likely remember his dramatic over-the-wall touchdown grab with no time left to lift the Power to a dramatic 39-38 victory over the Milwaukee Mustangs.
DeWalt’s willingness to do what it takes to make a play is going to be a very welcome addition to this 2013 Power squad. He also adds to the strong wide receiver corps the Power are putting together.
The Power scrimmage the Cleveland Gladiators today from 1-3 p.m. at the Southpointe Fieldhouse in Canonsburg, PA. The scrimmage is open to all fans. The season opener is just a few weeks away when the team opens play against the Utah Blaze March 23rd. For more information, please visit http://www.pittsburghpowerfootball.com
