Iowa Hawkeye Football Camp 8/9/11

The Iowa Hawkeye Football team took the field in full pads for the first time this fall.  The Hawkeyes were lucky to have two football greats from the state of Iowa attend practice today. 

Jared DeVries, former Hawkeye Consensus All-American was on hand to watch practice tonight as well as legendary Iowa native Chad Hennings. 

Hennings went to Benton Community High School and was coached by current Hawkeye O-Line coach Reese Morgan.  Hennings went on to play college football at the United States Air Force Academy where he would go on to win the Outland Trophy in his senior year as the nation's top interior lineman.  Hennings would eventually end up playing football for the Dallas Cowboys in the 1990's and was part of the legendary Cowboy team that won 3 Super Bowls in 4 years.  In 2006, Hennings was inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame.  Providing great insight and details about his success, Hennings addressed the Hawkeye Football team on Tuesday night following practice and gave them words of encouragement for their upcoming season.

Below, we have linked some more flip cam footage of the Hawkeye's 5th practice of fall camp.  Stay tuned for more camp coverage over the next couple of weeks.
