A Barnstormer tradition revealed one of their rookie players had another talent besides football and now they are putting it to good use.

Defensive end Mario Ambrose is 6 foot 4 and weighs in at 280 pounds.

His teammates noticed at the rookie talent show that Ambrose could sing. Turns out he grew up singing in the church choir.

“Mario went up there first at the rookie show and started singing. That blew me out of the water. It`s like we were at church or something,” teammate Matangi Tonga said.

Earlier this year before his team took on the New Orleans Voodoo and Ambrose took on the National Anthem.

“After that we all ran up to him and gave him props because that`s huge, singing in front of 10,000 people. Singing any song would be scary let alone the National Anthem,” Tonga said.

The rookie can do it all, sing the National Anthem before the game then sack the quarterback during.
