Wichita Wild (IFL) add Alcorn State's OL Jammal Young

The Wichita Wild of the Indoor Football League (IFL) has added two more players that should impact the team in 2009. The Wild signed former Kansas State defensive back Byron Garvin and former Alcorn State offensive lineman Jammal Young. Garvin was in mini-camp with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers last May after going undrafted in the 2008 NFL Draft.

Garvin's final season for the Wildcats was in 2007. Garvin played in nine games and recorded 42 tackles and two interceptions on the season. Garvin saw action in 12 games as a junior in 2006. The Miramar, FL native tallied 58 tackles, which ranked fifth on the team. Garvin scored the game-winning touchdown vs. Illinois State by returning a fumble. As a sophomore, Garvin started seven games and recorded 30 tackles. Garvin saw action in 11 games on special teams as a freshman.

Young started all but three games in his four years of college. His final season at Alcorn State was in 2008, where he was named to the All-Southwestern Athletic Conference (SWAC) Team. Young allowed only one sack in his two seasons with the Braves. Before attending Alcorn, Young started every game for two seasons at Coahoma Community College in Mississippi. In 2006, Young was named to All-Region First Team. He was also named Offensive Lineman of the Year for the Tigers. The Clarksdale, MS native stands at 6-4 and 320 lbs.

Fans are encouraged to call the Wild office at 316-440-5044 to reserve their seats in the brand new Hartman Arena for the 2009 season. Wild season tickets start at $98 for the entire season.
