February 3, 2005 - Dayton, OH-The Dayton Warbirds, an expansion team in the United Indoor Football Association, are pleased to announce the signing of three offensive linemen. Joe Washington, Todd Oberdorf, and Michael Johnson have agreed to play for the Warbirds during the 2005 inaugural season.

Joe Washington is a 6’2” 319 pound lineman from Western Kentucky University. WKU won the 2002 NCAA I-AA National Championship while Washington was named “Player of the Week” ten times. During his junior year Washington had 180 “pancake” blocks, while in his senior campaign he had 220 “pancakes.”

Todd Oberdorf is 6’6” and 310 pounds. He played at Indiana University where he helped lead the Hoosiers to the 1987 Peach Bowl and the 1988 Liberty Bowl. Oberdorf was named to the All Big Ten list second team in 1989. After college the Seattle Seahawks signed Todd as a free agent. He was then assigned to the London Monarchs of NFL-Europe where he played from 1990 through the 1992 season. The Monarchs won the 1991 World Bowl Championship.

Michael Johnson is 6’3” and 285 pounds from Eastern Kentucky University. Johnson never allowed a sack while starting at EKU. He was also with the Louisville Fire during the early part of 2004.

“We are very excited about the quality of players we are bringing into camp,” said Head Coach Matt King. “I believe we can compete early on, despite being an expansion team,” he added.

The Warbirds kick off their inaugural season March 17th at the Nutter Center. Season tickets are on sale now. For more information on the Warbirds, please visit their website at www.daytonwarbirds.com or call the office at (937) 427-9737.
