Growing up in Solon, which is about 15 miles from Iowa City, it didn’t take long for James Morris to become a Hawkeye fan.
“The first game I ever went to was Akron,” said James, who was 11 at the time.
He picked a good year to start following the Hawkeyes as the Akron Zips was the first game in 2002 and Iowa rolled, 57-21.
That was the year that Brad Banks, Dallas Clark, Nate Kaeding and crew led the Hawks to an 11-2 record, including 8-0 in the Big Ten and a co-Big Ten championship with Ohio State.
