Jack Koerner | WUW 288

Jack is from Des Moines, Iowa and attended Dowling Catholic High School, home grown I guess.. and was a multi time state champ with the Maroon football team before showing up to Iowa City in 2017. A true born and bred Hawkeye, he tells his story of choosing to wear the black and gold last minute, which came with an interesting conversation with the DB coach from SD, how he worked his way up the ranks within the Iowa program, and the surprise person who he tried to model his career after from the jump. We talk about the safety position in general as well as playing behind guys like Campbell and Benson, and what sort of energy those guys brought to practice, and how they made the team better. We discuss the weight room and leadership, the blueprint of success as a walk on, his boating accident and how his perspective changed after that, Coach Parker, and his potential to continue to underdog story into the NFL.
