Iowa Spring Game

Gervase stars in Iowa Spring Football game.

IOWA CITY, Iowa. - Iowa had their Spring Football game on April 21, here is a sampling of what Head Coach Kirk Ferentz had to say after the night.

"First of all, just a really good night for football. Kind of felt like an October night in some ways, and good crowd, good energy out there. And just overall been pleased for the most part with the attitude and the effort of our team going back to January. I think they've worked hard and been focused. That being said, certainly we're hardly ready to play at this point and not expecting that. But seen some individual growth over the last 15 practices. It's been fun to watch the guys start to finish and just see where they're at.


Again, some individual growth we're seeing out there, some improvement, some areas that look to be in pretty decent shape, and then other areas where we clearly have a lot of work to do.

That'll be what we'll start focusing on when we get back together in August, and in the meantime, we'll let the guys finish up this semester, a couple weeks of class, then finals, handle that well hopefully, and take a break and then we'll get it going here in early June.

Just really pleased, and needless to say a couple guys really stood out there. Good to see Jake Gervase have a good night like that. I thought Toren Young did some good things, as well, and some of the safeties really kind of showed up, which was good to see, and we're going to need help from everybody here as we move on."
