HAWKEYE FOOTBALL: Former Player Sues School
One of the 13 University of Iowa football players hospitalized in 2011 due to a muscular syndrome following an intense workout has filed a lawsuit against the school.
The suit was filed Monday on behalf of former Hawkeye William Lowe. It claims the team’s coaches and trainers failed to properly supervise him during the workout.
The suit says, “As a result of negligence of the state of Iowa, the plaintiff suffered physical and mental harm, including rhabdomyolsis, acute renal failure, headaches, high blood pressure, anxiety, depression as well as injury to his legs, back and other parts of his body.”
Lowe is seeking monetary damages through a jury trial.
