Express sign 4x All-Pro LB-Niko Price (Ohio University)
The Erie Express are pleased to announce the signing of 4x All-Pro LB-Niko Price (Ohio University) for the 2023 season. Niko begins his first season with the Express and will compete for a starting spot on the defensive rotation.
Price may be new to the Express but by no means is he a rookie. Nico is a graduate of McKeesport, HS where he was a three-year starter. Niko was named All-Conference, All-State, was a 2x Daily News Dynamic 33, Post-Gazette Fabulous 22 and Tribune-Review Terrific 25.
Price played his college ball at Ohio University where he was a teammate of current Express All-Pro RB Donte Harden. Price finished his college ball at California University of PA where he was part of back to back Northeast Region Championships.
Since then Price has been a member of the WPA Wildcatz where he helped lead the Wildcatz to 3 league championships, 4 National Bowl Game appearances including 2 National Titles. Along the way Price has been named team captain as well as All-Pro 4 times.
"Nico has given us headaches for years so it's nice to have him on the roster and WITH us as opposed to being against us. He is one of the premier inside linebackers in the country and he will fit in very nice with who we have and our system. Nico is a proven winner and performs at a very high level. We are blessed to have him on board and are expecting great things from him in 2023"-Director of Operations Paul Pennington.
