"Jamel has outstanding speed and hands,"said Bernie Nowotarski, the Stempede's general manager and head coach said in a press release Friday. " He is also a capable two-way player being able to play defensive back if necessary.

"He also brings with him AIFA indoor experience from his time playing with the Yakima Warriors in the great state of Washington."
