The Richmond Roughriders have announced that they have signed wide receiver Damond Powell. Powell has played with the Cedar Rapids Titans in the Indoor Football League (IFL).
He led the IFL last season with 22 receiving touchdowns. He played his college football at the University of Iowa.
Richmond joins the American Arena League after one season in the Arena Pro Football. They defeated the Florida Tarpons in the APF Championship Game on June 10. The APF and Can-Am Football League joined forces in April to create the AAL. Teams from the Supreme Indoor Football League (SIF) have also joined the league.
The season will kick off on March 17 and will conclude with the inaugural AAL title game on Saturday, June 30. Like the other arena leagues, the game will be played at the home of the #1 team in the playoffs.
