College football teams are knee deep in practices and scrimmages this week so we are strapping it on and hitting the pads here at the KCCGD. Part of our preseason includes a yearly trek up to Big 10 country and Des Moines, Iowa. So in honor of scrimmaging up in the Hawkeye State, we will take a look at the Iowa Hawkeyes and Herky the Hawk. We’ll figure out why Iowa became the Hawkeye state. We’ll also find out why Herky is such a rambunctious bird. Come fly with us and Herky.
