IOWA CITY – Expectations are high for Hawkeye football. Many fans expect double-digit wins.
One of the main reasons expectations are so high is All-American Left Tackle Brandon Scherff.
The Senior is widely considered the best offensive tackle in the entire country, and a sure-fire top 10 pick in next years NFL Draft.
Scherff, an avid hunter from Denison, Iowa recently hang cleaned 443 pounds, three times. For those that don’t know weightlifting, that’s a lot. It’s an all-time Iowa record for a hang clean.
Iowa strength Coach Chris Doyle says he doesn’t know of anyone moving that kind of weight.
Scherff anchors an offensive line that returns 4 starters from a year ago.
Iowa opens the season Saturday August 30th against UNI.
