Wide receiver Thomas Owens is returning for his third season with the Pirates. During the 2021 season, Owens finished as one of the best players in the IFL and was one of the two wide receivers named to the First-All IFL. Owens was also ranked highly in many of the receiving statistics: 66 receptions (2nd) for 911 yards (2nd), 22 touchdowns (2nd), averaging 13.8 yards per catch (4th), 4.7 receptions per game (3rd), and 65.1 receiving yards per game (2nd). Owens also earned two Offensive Players of the Week this season.

Back in 2019 he was voted NAL’s Offensive Rookie of the Year. Owens appeared in eleven games for the Pirates in ‘19 and hauled in 59 passes for 577 receiving yards, scoring 10 touchdowns. He averaged nearly 10 yards per reception and over 50 yards per game. The super-talented Owens also ran the ball three times and returned 3 kickoffs, one all the way back for a touchdown. His best performance of the season came against Columbus when he grabbed 8 receptions for 110 yards. In the Pirates playoff game against Carolina, Owens also shined, catching 5 passes for 88 yards and a touchdown. With a spectacular rookie season behind him, Owens is ready for 2021.

As a senior at Florida International University in 2017, Owens had his best college season. He caught 59 passes for 887 receiving yards and scored 6 touchdowns. Owens led Conference USA in receiving yards per game and at one point posted four consecutive games of 100 yards receiving. Owens’ performance in 2017 was good enough for him to earn All-Conference USA First-Team honors. The following spring Owens was invited to the Seattle Seahawks minicamp before signing with the Pirates.

In 2016, Owen’s junior year as a Panther, he appeared in 12 games. He caught 47 passes for over 650 receiving yards and 7 receiving touchdowns. Owens also returned 11 kickoffs, gaining 137 yards for an average of 12.5 yards. He had three multi-touchdown games and fell one shy of tying the school’s single season record of 8. Against Charlotte, Owens recorded a career-high 148 yards receiving on 11 receptions. His performance in ‘16 resulted in an All-Conference USA Honorable Mention selection.
