Fall '07 = More Fun & Better Play

The Fall'07 season for the flag football team built upon the success of the first season. With the loss of some key players from the previous year, the team acquired some new fresh talent from some local Iowa Law School graduates. This along with some additional fresh faces and returning teammates provided the team with the depth and numbers it needed throughout the season.

Veteran Club member and 2nd year coach, Brad Moss, along with the help of assistant coaches Nate Stetler and Kevin Meredith, helped lead the team to a record of 6-4 in the regular season and into the 2nd round of the end of the year playoffs in January. This included very sound wins over teams like Stanford, Emory, and Arizona, and bragging rights over fellow Big Ten rivals Wisconsin, Ohio State, and Minneasota for which the team won a replica of the Floyd of Rosedale trophy. This also included tough and close losses to top league teams including Penn State, NC State, and Georgia Tech.

Iowa was awarded 23rd in the post-season tournament held in January. After a hopefully, predictive game of next fall's varisty matchup, the team won a solid game against Pittsburgh. Iowa would then move on to falling short against a very tough Bucknell team, wrapping the season record to 7-5. With it all said and done, all teammates and spectators had a great season and a great time and we can look forward to another solid team next fall.

Great Inaugurial Season

The Capital Area Iowa Club’s first season in the CAN co-ed flag football league, by all accounts, was a huge success. The team had at least 30 players participate in at least one game, with 20-25 “regulars” over the 10-game regular season. The team, coached by longtime Club member Brad Moss, posted a 4-6 record against a difficult schedule that included three teams ranked in CAN’s top 10 and six in the top 25.

We’ve heard from a number of opposing players and longtime league members that a four-win season is phenomenal for a first-year team. Some teams go several years before they even start to win any games. We beat three teams that the real Hawkeyes couldn’t this year -- Ohio State, Indiana and Wisconsin -- in addition to South Carolina. The only frustrating part is that we could have won two or three more games very easily (Cal-Berkeley, Xavier and Michigan State come to mind!). There were only two games (Penn State in a mudbath and East Carolina when we barely fielded a team) where we were visibly overmatched.

The team experienced tremendous female participation, with games where we often had 10 or 11 women, including offensive stars Becky Gustafson and Donna Loop. Moss and Jason Imhof combined for several touchdowns as they rotated at quarterback and receiver, and Dan Fletcher turned out to be a two-way standout at linebacker and receiver. Lanky center Chad did his best Scott Chandler impression (minus the drops), catching six TD passes off the line. Safety Nate Stelter directed a defense that saw great improvement as we got more accustomed to the league’s rules and tendencies ... and better at one of the game’s most critical elements, flag-pulling. We also had at least a dozen team members step up to referee games, an integral part of the league’s success.

We also had at least a dozen team members step up to referee games, an integral part of the league’s success.  The team wants to give special thanks to Josh and Lisa Miller and Callie Stapp for going 'above and beyond' the call of duty to referee additional games on short notice.

Thanks to the Club’s support and the enjoyment from the first season, we can probably pencil in several more great seasons to come.
