The Nebraska Danger made one of its biggest signings ever.

The Danger announced Wednesday that former Nebraska quarterback Tommy Armstrong has signed to play with the team for the 2019 season.

Armstrong started 44 games during his Husker career that ran from 2013-16. He took over the starting job part way through his redshirt freshman season in 2013 and led the Huskers to a 7-1 record down the stretch.

He finished his career as the Huskers’ all-time leader in passing yards (8.871), pass completions (625), passing touchdowns (67), career offense (10,690), total touchdowns (91), 250-yard passing games (14), games with 300 yards of total offense (11) and career starts for a quarterback (44).

Armstrong will be able to learn the indoor game under former Danger quarterback Jameel Sewell who signed in the offseason to be the team’s offensive coordinator. Sewell was a two-time IFL offensive MVP and led the Danger to three straight appearances in the IFL championship game.

Sewell set a number of franchise records in 2013 for passing yards in a season (2,351), pass completions in a season (189), passing touchdowns in a season (52), rushing touchdowns in a season (25) and rushing yards in a season (654).

The Danger will open the 2019 season on Feb. 23 against the expansion Bismarck Bucks at the Heartland Events Center.
