Oct 28, 2014

TAMPA BAY – The Tampa Bay Storm is pleased to announce the acquisition of rookie defensive lineman Frank Mays.

“Frank can be a dominant force on the defensive line,” said Storm head coach Lawrence Samuels.  “His height will bring a different element to the game on the defensive side of the ball.  We look forward to seeing him on the field once training camp starts.”

Mays (6-foot-9, 295 lbs., Florida A&M) joins the Storm for his first season in the Arena Football League. 

He played at Central Lakes College (MN) before transferring to Florida A&M for his junior and senior seasons.  At FAMU, Mays appeared in 21 games for the Rattlers, leading the team with 4.0 sacks in his senior season.  He finished his collegiate career with 68 tackles, 15.5 tackles for loss and six sacks.

Mays began his professional career with the Philadelphia Eagles in 2014 when he signed with the team as an undrafted rookie free agent.
