Hawk Talk

Last week, a handful of Hawkeye football players met with some of the media to talk football, summer workouts and bear hunting…
James Vandenberg was the focus of attention as he went to Canada a few weeks ago and came back with a bear as big as the defensive line. The most amazing thing is that he took it down with a bow and arrow.
I got a chance to talk to Kevonte Martin-Manley, C.J. Fiedorowicz, Christian Kirksey and Micah Hyde. There were no bear stories…
