DJK joins Barnstormers


The Iowa Barnstormers made a big move in the AFL free agent market Wednesday afternoon as Head Coach and Director of Football Operations Mike Hohensee announced that all-Big Ten wide receiver Derrell Johnson-Koulianos (6-1, 200) joins Iowa for the 2012 season. Best known to Iowa Hawkeye fans statewide as "DJK", Johnson-Koulianos arrives in Des Moines after a four-year, record-setting career at the University of Iowa.

Johnson-Koulianos was one of the most prolific receivers in Hawkeye history as he recorded 173 receptions for 2,616 yards and 17 touchdowns. The career receptions and receiving yards were all-time University of Iowa records until eclipsed by Marvin McNutt during the Hawkeyes' 2011 season. Johnson-Koulianos' 2010 season earned him All-Big Ten First-Team (Coaches) recognition.
