One of the most dynamic offensive players in IFL history, WR James Terry spent ten seasons in Sioux Falls. He is an eight-time United Bowl Champion (2006-2008 UIF, 2011-2015 IFL) and a three-time All-League Selection. He ranks 1st in Storm history in receptions, receiving yards, and receiving touchdowns. He ranks 1st in IFL history in career receptions (452) and all-purpose yards (6,472) and 4th in receiving yards (4,645). Terry's biggest impact came when it mattered most; the postseason. He holds IFL postseason records in career receptions (83), yards (937), and touchdowns (21). He was named Co-MVP of the 2014 United Bowl.
An All-Conference performer at St. Cloud State University, Johnsen began his indoor football career with the Sioux Falls Storm in 2006. He would spend the next ten seasons anchoring the defensive line of vaunted "Thunder Defense". Johnsen was a three-time All-League Selection (2008, 2009, 2015) and was a member of eight United Bowl Championship teams (2006-2008 UIF, 2011-2015 IFL). He is the Storm's career leader with 64.5 sacks. He ranks 5th all-time in IFL history with 29 sacks. In 2008, Johnsen founded "Sacks for Cash", a charitable foundation that uses the Storm platform to raise money for local non-profit and charitable organizations in the Sioux Falls community.
Robert Fuller is the first coach to be selected for the IFL Hall of Fame. Highly regarded both on and off the field, Fuller gained the reputation as one of the most respected coaches in IFL history. His tenure in the IFL included coaching duties with the Omaha Beef, Fairbanks Grizzlies, Green Bay Blizzard, and Bemidji Axemen. In consecutive seasons, 2011 with Fairbanks and 2012 with Green Bay, Fuller was named IFL Coach of the Year and received the league's Adam Pringle Award (equivalent to the NFL's Walter Payton Man of the Year Award). He is only individual to receive these awards more than once. Fuller also coached fellow Hall of Famer RB LaRon Council to the most prolific rushing season in IFL history. Council set IFL single season records in rushing attempts (256), rushing yards (1,040), and rushing touchdowns (32). IFL Hall of Famer B.J. Hill was also a member of the 2012 Blizzard team.
