Sheedy traveling with God

Special Teams

Hawk Talk

Media day was last Monday and the next three weeks I’ll be breaking down the special teams, the offense and defense.
I’m starting with the special teams this year because Iowa has to replace one of the best kickers ever to play for the Hawkeyes... Mike Meyer.
The 6-2, 190-pound player from Dubuque finished second in career field goals (61) and career scoring (324 points).
Only Nate Kaeding did better with 67 field goals and 373 total points.
Mike also set a school record with 122 straight PATs. Nate held the record with 60 straight.
