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.

Walkin'

“No, we don’t have much good porn in Illinois,” my mother Vernabelle said to her brother Larry. “Why do you ask?”
We were in my Aunt Isabelle’s kitchen. Aunt Izzy is my mother’s twin sister and lives about a half mile outside of Wittenberg, Wis. As an 85th birthday present, my older brother Bruce and I drove Mom and Dad from Chicago to the small town in Shawano County for a quick visit.

Food For Thought

I’ve often thought that the new year should begin in September rather than the middle of the winter. As a child, September seemed to be the beginning of new things. School started. I think I looked forward to school more than I did to Christmas or my birthday. When school started, so many things about my life changed. There were new clothes, new shoes– stiff and brown and sure to cause blisters after a summer of sandals and bare feet.
