Hawk Talk

This is the final preseason look at Iowa football. The last couple of weeks I’ve discussed all of the offense and the defensive line. This week I’ll talk about the linebackers, defensive backs and special teams.

The starting linebackers, Christian Kirksey (6-2, 220), James Morris (6-2, 230) and Anthony Hitchens (6-1, 224) have a few things in common. They all are juniors, very athletic and they all have speed.
