Former Hawkeye football player and NFL veteran Tim Dwight plans to compete in 25 events at the 2011 Iowa Games, according to an article on HawkCentral.com
Created in 1987, the Iowa Games was created as a way for Iowans to “to practice sportsmanship, trustworthiness, respect, responsibility, fairness, caring and citizenship, while striving to be a champion on and off the field of play.” The Games features 65 different events ranging from archery to wrestling.
The second All-Time leading receiver in Iowa football history, Dwight played 10 seasons in the NFL as a wide receiver and kick/punt returner before retiring in 2007. He plans to participate in 25 events in honor of the 25th anniversary of the Iowa Games. By participating in the events, the former Hawkeye hopes to spread awareness about the importance of being in good physical condition.
The Iowa Games kicks off on July 15 with the opening ceremonies at Jack Trice Stadium in Ames, Iowa.
