Iowa Kid Captain announced

Posted:

IOWA CITY (KWWL) -- This week's Iowa kid captain has been announced. It's 3-year old Taytum Bell from Sigourney.

Taytum suffers from Linear Sclerodoma, an auto-immune disease that can cause hardening of the skin and impair bone development.

So far the physical symptoms are under control as she undergoes her treatment.

Taytum gets a Hawkeye jersey for being kid captain.

Iowa is at Michigan this Saturday.
