Iowa State’s football team, where my nephew plays, held their spring football game on
Saturday in Ames, a quintessential Midwest college town. It’s going to be another quarterback race between Steele and Jared Barnett. A red-shirt freshman also is in the running.
“Jantz, heading into his senior season, frustrated opponents with his ability to escape pressure last fall before injuring a foot and losing the starting job to Barnett,” according to an AP article. “He showed no signs of that injury when running the ball Saturday and was accurate with his passing, completing 20 of 32 for 161 yards, including a nicely thrown ball on a 56-yard completion to Josh Lentz.”
We had a good visit with Steele at Spring Break. He’s enjoying college and doing well in school. We’re also glad that Southwest Airlines starts flying into Des Moines in time for the football season (though the air fares are still a “killer.”) Soon we’ll swap out the “Cyclone” flag for the American flag in the front yard to help cheer him on. Good luck my friend! We’re proud of you!
