Hawks look to grow during Spring Football

Posted:
IOWA CITY (KWWL) -

It sounds like a cliche' going into spring football. The young Iowa Hawkeyes are seeking to grow as a team. But when you consider the Hawks must replace 10 starters--- And there has been a dramatic makeover to the coaching staff.. This is more than just coach speak. For Kirk Ferentz its reality. 

"We have a very young football team. The one thing we talked about our team is the need to grow. We need to grow as a staff. Every player needs to grow. The veteran players, the guys that have been out there that have competed, had a chance to do good things, they need to play their best certainly next fall and need to lead.

Then we have that next level coming up, some are seniors, some are juniors, some obviously freshmen, but that next group that needs to take this opportunity and try to move up and demonstrate they're ready to play, too.

It's an ongoing process, a fun time of the year for coaches. We're eager to get started tomorrow (Wednesday)."
