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.

Young athletes get a chance to run, bike, swim and shine

NORTH LIBERTY– To have nearly 100 athletes participate in a local triathlon event is successful by any measure; to note that all of them are between the ages and 6 and 14 is more remarkable.
North Liberty’s second annual Just Tri Youth Triathlon was held Sunday, Aug. 4, with three separate age brackets in varied biking, swimming and running distances.
Even co-director Katie Gerot– also the aquatics supervisor for the North Liberty Recreation Department– said 98 kids signed up for this year’s event.
“It was nice to have such great support from the community,” said Gerot.

New era for CCA football

Matt Hughes and Clippers build on strong foundation as they look forward

By Chris Umscheid
North Liberty Leader
TIFFIN– When the Clear Creek Amana (CCA) Clippers varsity football team takes the field Friday, Sept. 30, to open the 2013 season, there will be a host of new faces on the sidelines. For the first time in seven years, Rodney Walls won’t be leading the men in blue and white. Walls resigned after the 2012 season, which saw the Clippers improve to a 4-5 record from 2011’s 0-9 showing.
