Meet Iowa football’s ‘kid captains’ for 2017

Iowa has featured a “kid captain” from University of Iowa Children’s Hospital for each football game since 2009. Here are this year’s captains:

“All Kid Captains will receive a commemorative jersey, special recognition from UI Stead Family Children’s Hospital and the Iowa Hawkeyes, and an invitation to a special behind-the-scenes tour of Kinnick Stadium on Saturday, August 12,” a hospital release said.

The Hawkeyes will spotlight one kid captain each game week, including the postseason.
