The Nashville Storm are seeking new players at numerous positions due to the Storm's unprecedented success in having players from the adult amateur program signed by paying professional football programs. 8 of the players on the 25-man roster of the 2014 Nashville Venom (professional Arena football) are former Nashville Storm players (Zach Ducker, Stanlee Bradley, Dedrick Tucker, BJ Taylor, Pistol Ramsey, Ken Walton, Garrett Morgan, and Derek Dickerson), while 2013 Storm RB Preston Brown is playing for the Omaha Beef and 2013 Storm OL Darius Turner is playing for the PIFL Alabama Hammers.
The Nashville Storm will be playing in 2014 in the Gridiron Developmental Football League (http://www.gdfl.org).
