Webster City Lynx Football
In just two days the Webster City Lynx will take the field on the road against the Gilbert Tigers in the 2018 High School Football season opener. Practice over the past several weeks has been an opportunity for Head Coach Bob Howard to piece together a team that will feature underclassmen at some key spots. While Howard laid out his plans for the offensive line earlier this week, he continues to machinate on how to best utilize his skill players.
The ball coach, entering his 11th season at the helm for the Lynx, has admitted that this year’s offense will look a little different than it has in years past.
On the perimeter, Howard has returning 2017 contributors in the form of senior wing Drake Doolittle, senior Tight End Henry Hoversten, and Junior Split End Parker Rossing.
Iowa Hawkeye Football
Iowa offensive coordinator Brian Ferentz expects Ivory Kelly-Martin to be the Hawkeyes’ starting running back when they open against Northern Illinois. The Plainfield, Illinois native saw action in all 13 games a year ago as a true freshman and has been competing with fellow sophomores Toren Young and Mekhi (mih-kye) Sargent.
Ferentz says all three will see playing time.
Ivory Kelly-Martin and the Hawkeyes will take the field at Kinnick Stadium on September 1st to open the season against Northern Illinois.
