New Hawkeye Football Facility almost complete

Posted: Updated:
Construction crews are working up against a tight deadline to complete the second phase of the $55 million nearly 220-thousand square foot Iowa Hawkeye football operations facility.

The second phase project funded entirely with private donations and athletic department money will feature strength and conditioning space, athletic training facilities, team meeting rooms, position group rooms, equipment rooms and locker rooms, as well as offices for coaches and staff members. The facility which already has an indoor practice facility--is an all-in-one space for the Hawkeye football program. Coach Kirk Ferentz says many people contributed to the project---and he also gave credit to Hayden Fry for paving the way for him to carry the torch.
