TWO HAWKEYES EARN NATIONAL HONOR
Sophomore PK Mike Meyer was named national Placekicker of the Week by the
College Football Performance Awards for his play in Iowa’s 44-41 three-overtime
loss at Iowa State. Meyer is also one of three kickers to earn “Stars of the Week”
recognition from the Lou Groza Collegiate Place Kicker Award. In addition, sopho-
more LB Christian Kirksey earned honorable mention as Linebacker of the Week.
Meyer made all four field goal attempts, connecting from 42, 20, 50 and 34 yards.
The 50-yard kick is a career best and the 34-yard effort came in the third overtime
period. Meyer is perfect through two games (6-6 FGs, 7-7 PATs) and leads the
team in scoring with 25 points.
Kirksey had a career-high 13 tackles at Iowa State, including 11 solo stops. He
had two tackles for loss and one QB sack. He also caused and recovered an Iowa
State fumble while making a tackle and had one pass break-up. Kirksey leads Iowa
with 23 tackles in two games.
FOUR TO BE ADDED TO MEDIA WALL OF FAME
Four members of the media, who covered University of Iowa athletics over the past
40 years, will be inducted into the Kinnick Stadium Media Wall of Fame Saturday.
They will be recognized on the field during pre-game ceremonies.
The inductees are Phil Haddy, a member of the UI athletic staff for 41 years and
Iowa’s sports information director from 1993-2010; Chuck Schoffner, who covered
Iowa events for both United Press and the Associated Press (1972-05); Kevin Ev-
ans, sportswriter and sports editor at the Waterloo Courier (1965-2006), and John
Campbell, current sports director at KCRG-TV in Cedar Rapids (1979-present).
Haddy joined the Iowa athletic staff as assistant sports information director in
1971. He became the third sports information director in school history in 1993. He
began a two-year phased retirement in 2010. Haddy joins former Iowa SIDs Eric
Wilson (1923-68) and George Wine (1968-93) as members of the Wall of Fame.
Schoffner began his career at United Press International (1972-79). He joined
the Associated Press as a sportswriter in 1979 and later served as AP Iowa sports
editor until his retirement in November, 2005. Schoffner continues to work as a
freelance writer, covering women’s college basketball, the Drake Relays, NCAA
Track and Field Championships, and professional golf and auto racing events.
Campbell has been involved in sports broadcasting for 41 years, including the
last 32 years at KCRG. He was named sports director at KCRG-TV in June, 1979,
following a 10-year stint as a sports reporter for WBAY-TV in Green Bay, Wis.
Evans began his sports writing career at the Waterloo Courier in 1965, working
part-time as a high school senior. He served as the Courier’s sports editor for 15
years before his retirement in 2006. During his career, Evans covered Iowa football
through five coaching regimes, beginning with Ray Nagel. He covered Hawkeye
football on a fulltime basis the last 15 years of his career.
The inaugural class of 20 members was recognized in 2006, the first year the Paul
W. Brechler Press Box was in use following the Kinnick Stadium renovation. The
Wall of Fame, located in the media section of the press box, recognized individuals
who have covered Hawkeye football with integrity, accuracy and fairness over a
long period of time.

Pitt answered with short scoring runs by Graham and Zach Brown to take a 35-15
lead midway through the final period. Maine responded with another touchdown
at the 3:12 mark and a final score with just three seconds left to play to cut into
the Pitt margin of victory.

IOWAN CALLING THE SIGNALS
Junior QB James Vandenberg started at quarterback in Iowa’s opening win.
Vandenberg is a native of Keokuk and the first native Iowan to open the season as
Iowa’s starting quarterback since 2001. The most recent Iowa native to hold that
position was Kyle McCann of Creston. McCann led Iowa to victory in the 2001
Alamo Bowl, the first bowl win for Coach Kirk Ferentz.
Two native Iowans have led the Hawkeyes to Rose Bowl wins, including Kenny
Ploen (Clinton) during the 1956 season and Randy Duncan (Des Moines) during
the 1958 season. Both were first team All-Americans.
St. Ansgar native Matt Sherman led Iowa to a pair of bowl wins (1996 Alamo and
1997 Sun Bowl), while Iowa City native Paul Burmeister was Iowa’s quarterback
in the 1993 Alamo Bowl.
Additional Iowa natives who passed for over 1,500 yards, but never led Iowa in a
bowl game, include Gary Snook (Iowa City, 1963-65), Ed Podolak (Atlantic, 1966-
68, who ended his Iowa career as a prolific running back), Phil Suess (Des Moines,
1977-80), Randy Reiners (Ft. Dodge, 1996-99), Tom McLaughlin (Dubuque,
1975-77), Al DeMarco (Mason City, 1947-48) and Glen Drahn (Elkader, 1948-50).
RETURNING WITH HONORS
Iowa returns five players who earned All-Big Ten honors a year ago. Among
those returning, DB Shaun Prater was a first team selection by both league coaches
and media. WR Marvin McNutt, Jr., and Riley Reiff were second team selections.
DT Mike Daniels and DB Micah Hyde earned honorable mention recognition.
In addition, Hyde was the Defensive Player of the Game in Iowa’s 27-24 Insight
Bowl win over 12th-ranked Missouri and RB Marcus Coker was the Offensive
Player of the Game. Coker rushed 33 times for 219 yards and two touchdowns,
while Hyde scored the winning touchdown on a 72-yard interception return in the
fourth quarter and recorded six tackles.
AMONG CAREER LEADERS
Senior WR Marvin McNutt, Jr., ranks third in career touchdown receptions (18)
and is 13th in receiving yards and 18th in career catches (98-1,747).
Senior DB Shaun Prater has 173 career interception return yards and junior DB
Micah Hyde has 142 yards. Prater ranks seventh among Iowa’s career intercep-
tion leaders and Hyde is 11th. Prater and Hyde each have two touchdown returns.
Among Iowa’s career leaders, only Tom Knight (three) and Plez Atkins (two) have
more than one touchdown return.
THREE HAWKEYES OUT OF ACTION
Sophomore LB Shane DiBona, true freshman RB Mika’il McCall and sophomore
LB Dakota Getz will miss the remainder of the 2011 season.
DiBona suffered an achilles injury during preseason practice. He underwent suc-
cessful surgery at the UI Hospitals and Clinics following the injury and is expected
to make a full recovery.
After a redshirt season in 2009, the Duxbury, Mass. native saw action in all 13
games a year ago, with two starts. He recorded six solo tackles and seven assists.
McCall suffered a broken bone in his right leg in Iowa’s opening win over Ten-
nessee Tech. He had rushed for 61 yards on nine carries before suffering the injury.
Getz, who missed Iowa’s opening win due to injury, suffered a major knee injury
on the opening kick of the Iowa State game and is expected to miss the rest of the
season.
DOMINANT AT HOME
Iowa has won 50 of its last 61 games (.820) in Kinnick Stadium, dating back to
the 2002 season. Iowa recorded a school-record 22-game home winning streak
between 2002-05, which ended with an overtime loss to Michigan.

Heart Association. The Award recognizes the career accom-
plishments of some of college’s finest football coaches. It’s
the only award of its kind in the college football arena. The
award highlights the outstanding achievements and extraordi-
nary contributions which have reflected honor and sportsman-
ship to the game of football throughout the coach’s career.
He’ll receive the award at a banquet Jan. 12th in Houston, Tex.
Fry was Iowa’s head football coach for 20 years, posting a

of Fame, the Rose Bowl and Sun Bowl Halls of Fame, and the
North Texas State University Hall of Fame (formerly NTSU).
FERENTZ JOINS CHALLENGE
Iowa Coach Kirk Ferentz and Iowa State Coach Paul Rhoads
have joined forces with the Iowa Mentoring Partnership for
the 2011 Coaches’ Challenge. The Coaches’ Challenge runs
from Aug. 1-Nov. 21 and is a competition between Iowa,
Nebraska and Kansas to see which state can recruit the most
mentors.
For three years, Kansas and Nebraska have competed in a
“Coaches Mentoring Challenge”, with Bo Pelini (Nebraksa),
Bill Snyder (Kansas State) and Turner Gill (Kansas) taking
part in the competition. Ferentz and Rhoads have joined the
competition this season.
According to The National Mentoring Partnership, there
are 15 million children in the nation in need of caring and
quality mentors. In Iowa, it is estimated that nearly 5,000
young people are currently in need of a mentor. Many of
these children and youth are young men who would strongly
benefit from a positive male role model. The Iowa Mentoring
Partnership, an initiative of the Iowa Commission on Volun-
teer Service, upholds the commission’s mission to “improve
lives, strengthen communities and foster civic engagement
through service and volunteering” by supporting quality
mentoring services and by working to close the mentoring
gap in our state.
The Iowa Mentoring Partnership currently supports a net-
work of more than 80 local, certified mentoring programs.
Any new mentor application received between Aug. 1-Nov.
21 will count towards the score of the respective state, with
cumulative totals updated each month.

lenge, visit www.iowamentoring.org or call 1-800-308-5987.

and eventually dropped a 44-41 contest in three overtimes at Iowa
State. The loss snapped Iowa’s three-game winning streak in the
series.
Iowa drove 82 yards for a touchdown on its first drive of the game
and added a 42-yard field goal from Mike Meyer in the second for
a 10-0 advantage. A 12-yard Iowa State touchdown drive following
an Iowa fumble and a 54-yard field goal late in the second period
left the teams tied at 10-10 at the break.
Meyer connected on field goals of 20 and 50 yards in the third
period to give Iowa a 16-10 advantage. The 50-yard field goal
marked a career-best for Meyer. ISU answered with a five-play
touchdown drive to take its first least with two minutes remaining
in the third period.
Following a missed field goal attempt by ISU in the final period,
the Hawkeye drove 80 yards in 11 plays, taking the lead on a
one-yard run by Marcus Coker. Quarterback James Vandenberg
connected with WR Keenan Davis on the two-point conversion and
Iowa led 24-17 with 5:50 remaining.
Iowa State tied the score with 1:17 to play on a four-yard
touchdown pass as the Cyclones converted three times on third
down and a fourth and one.
Coker scored on a four-yard run in the first overtime, but ISU
answered. The Cyclones scored a touchdown in the second
overtime, but Iowa answered with a 23-yard touchdown pass from
Vandenberg to Davis. Iowa was held to a 34-yard Meyer field goal
in the third extra period before ISU scored the winning points on a
four-yard run.
Coker led Iowa’s rushing attack with 140 yards and two scores on
a career-best 35 attempts. Vandenberg completed 16-28 passes
for 207 yards and two scores, with no interceptions. Davis led Iowa
receivers with five receptions for 95 yards.
Sophomore LB Christian Kirksey led Iowa’s defense, recording
13 tackles (11 solo), two tackles for loss, one QB sack, a pass
break-up and a caused and recovered fumble.
