From a Rush release ...
The Chicago Rush signed wide receiver Freddie Barnes for the 2011 season. Barnes, who attended Homewood-Flossmoor, where he played football and basketball, set an NCAA record with 155 receptions his senior year at Bowling Green.
"Freddie is a hard worker with NFL talent," head coach Bob McMillen described. "His speed and toughness will make him a nightmare for defenses next year."
Barnes finished the 2009 season at Bowling Green with 155 catches for 1,770 yards and 16 touchdowns. His record breaking season earned him All-American accolades, and a spot as a Biletnikoff award finalist.
Barnes was signed as an undrafted free agent by the Bears on April 24 before being released on September 3.
