by Erie Express Media

The Erie Express are pleased to announce the signing of 3x All-Pro DL- Johnathon Slaughter (Wilcox Central, HS (AL) for the 2021 season. Johnathan begins his first season with the Express and will look to earn a spot in the defensive front rotation. 

Although new to the Express Johnathan is by no means a rookie. He brings with him multiple years of experience having played for the Cleveland Cobras, Northeast Ohio Silverbacks, Lorain County Nightmares, Ohio Invaders and the Cleveland Lightning.  

Slaughter was a member of the Silverbacks 2019 National Bowl Game runner up. 

"Johnathan is a strong physical player who we have known about for several years now. His ability to push then quickly move laterally has always been an area of concern for us when playing against him. He will give added depth to our defensive line. We like to rotate those big guys quite a bit and John's size and experience is sure to help in allowing us to do that. We are excited to have him in an Express uniform and are looking forward to a great season from him in 2021"-Director of Operations Paul Pennington. 

Welcome aboard the PAINTRAIN Johnathan! GO EXPRESS!
