In honor of the IFL's 10th Anniversary season, the IFL is counting down the top ten IFL players of all-time. Coming in at #10 is IFL Hall of Fame DB Lionell Singleton.
An All-Conference performer at Florida International University, Singleton is one of the most decorated defensive backs in IFL history. During his five-year IFL career, Singleton was named to three All-IFL teams (First Team in 2012, 2013 and Second Team in 2014). He was an instrumental player on the Fever's back-to-back Intense Conference Championship teams in 2011 and 2012. Singleton finished his IFL career with 395 tackles, 52 pass breakups, and 6 defensive touchdowns. He set IFL records with 31 career interceptions (T-1st) and career interception return yards with 454 (1st).
Singleton continues to do great work in and around the Kennewick community. He founded the Afterschool Matters Program at Eastgate and Jefferson Elementary. He was named the Kennewick School District Outstanding Partner of the Year in 2012. In 2013, he received the IFL's Adam Pringle Award (equivalent to the NFL's Walter Payton Man of the Year).
Singleton was named to the IFL Hall of Fame Class of 2016.
The countdown will culminate with the announcement of the top IFL player of all-time on February 23, the start of the 2018 IFL season.
