Barcelona Dragons sign Silesia Rebels standout QB Carlton Aiken Jr. 

Following QB Conor Miller’s placement onto the injured reserve list, the Barcelona Dragons have signed Pace University (NCAA DII) alum Carlton Aiken Jr in his place.

During his three seasons at Pace, Aiken racked up records and honors, being named MVP of the NE10 conference as well as making the All-Conference team twice. He left university having thrown for 5,175 yards and 51 touchdowns as well as rushing for 1,822 yards and 20 scores over his 29-game tenure.

After a successful collegiate career in New York which saw Aiken break his university’s all-time passing and scoring records, the 6’2”, 220lb dual-threat was a legitimate NFL prospect, declaring for the 2023 NFL Draft. Unfortunately, Aiken went undrafted and unsigned before making the decision to take his talents to Europe.

The New Jersey native joined the Silesia Rebels in Poland for the second half of their season and took the PFL by storm. Aiken took the Rebels on an undefeated streak, only falling at the final hurdle in the championship game, where the Lowlanders edged Silesia to win the Polish Bowl.

Aiken finished his short career in Poland with an impressive 28 total touchdowns without turning the ball over once, with a record of 4-1; he threw for 1,100 yards and 17 touchdowns while rushing for 700+ yards and 11 scores.

The Dragons’ last outing saw a rough game against the Tirol Raiders in which Conor Miller exited the field in the third quarter. Barcelona faces another tough opponent this weekend in the Stuttgart Surge who are coming off a surprising loss against the Helvetic Guards. The game will showcase two new QBs as Carlton Aiken Jr. and Kenyatte Allen square off looking to take their teams back to winning ways.
