4x All-Pro LB-Deangelo James added to 2021 roster

by Erie Express Media

The Erie Express are pleased to announce the addition of 4x All-Pro LB-Deangelo James (Tiffin University) for the 2021 season. D'Angelo begins his first season with the Express and looks to earn a spot in the defensive rotation as a linebacker/edge rusher.

James is  graduate of Archbishop Hoban High School (Akron, Ohio) and played his college ball for Tiffin University.

James may be new to the Express but he is no rookie to this level of play. He is a 6 year veteran and has earned All-Pro accolades in four of those seasons. James has helped lead the Ohio Broncos (OFL) and Canton Pitbulls (PAFL) to their championship games. In addition he has played for the Ohio Storm and Ohio Gladiators. James averages 16.5 sacks per season with a league best 29.5 in 2017.

"D'Angelo brings added depth to an already impressive defensive line. His proven ability coupled with our rotation and aggressive style of play makes him a perfect fit. Our players stay fresh, they keep the offense guessing and they know how to apply the pressure needed to force the big plays. We look forward to seeing him in action and are very pleased to have him in an Express uniform"-Director of Operations Paul Pennington.
