Trojans roll over Lions 67-28

By Chris Umscheid
North Liberty Leader
IOWA CITY– While many have dwelled on the huge hits to the West High varsity football roster from graduation, coach Brian Sauser and his Trojans honestly couldn’t care less.
That was yesterday, and yesterday’s gone.
The 2013 edition of West High Football made a statement Friday, Aug. 30, as it opened the season with a 67-28 home field victory over the Linn-Mar Lions: the program is fine and as strong as ever, maybe even stronger.

Can they break out?

Hawk Talk

This is the final preview of Iowa football. This week I’ll look at the linebackers, defensive backs and special teams.

West’s depth could lead to repeat MVC title

IOWA CITY– Experience is on the side of the West High Women of Troy as they take to the pool this fall. Coach Robert Miecznikowski returns 14 of 17 state qualifiers from last year and enjoys being three athletes deep in all events with 54 swimmers and divers on the team this year.

Who will start at QB?

Hawk Talk

The is the second part of a three-part series on the Hawkeye football team.
Last week I talked about the offensive line, tight ends, wide receivers and fullbacks. This week I’ll talk about quarterbacks, running backs and the defensive line. I’ll also pick who I think will be the starting quarterback for the Hawkeyes.

No matter who starts at quarterback, Iowa must have a strong running game to set up the play-action pass.
For the first time since Shonn Greene played in 2009, the Hawks should have some talent and depth at running back.
