While in Dodge City, Pargo appeared in 10 games, accumulating 291 yards on 21 receptions along with 4 touchdowns on the season.

“Pargo is a very gifted wide receiver with extreme determination, and can do everything on the football field,” O’Neal said. “Rashad even made the ESPN SportsCenter Top 10 highlights twice last with limited playing time. I’m anticipating him taking the next step and becoming a premiere player in the CIF during the 2018 season.”

Isiah Moody is a 5’7”, 180 pound dual threat at wide receiver and running back, who will be joining the Liberty for his rookie season of professional indoor football. Moody played football collegiately at West Liberty University, where he majored in criminal justice.

“Moody is extremely quick, and versatile as he can play both running back and wide receiver,” O’Neal said. “Isiah is very explosive and plays with great vision, and his abilities as a route runner to execute the route tree completely is an asset. He will be a terrific addition to our team.”

Terrell Smith is a 6’1”, 210 pound wide receiver from West Haverstraw, New York. Smith played collegiately at Saint Francis University, where he created an impressive resume his senior season on the football field. Smith was a First Team All-NEC selection, and his 920 receiving yards are second most all-time in a season at SFU and the 13th most all time in a season in conference history.

“Terrell is a big and athletic wide receiver that can go deep and get yards after the catch,” O’Neal said “He is physical enough to shut you down an block you, while also being nimble enough to run past you or break tackles after he catches the football.”
