    #40 for Chris Street

    I saw the question asked and I will give the best answer I can.

    After Chris died Johnny Orr Decided that someone from the state of Iowa on the Iowa State team would wear the number 40 from hear on out. I know Fred wore it one year and we have had someone wear it since then.
    I think last year we finally did it long enough and the tradition was ended. Personally they should have put a how long type number on the number of years someone would wear it. I think they just decided that Iowa State had honored Chris enough.

    I'd like to see ISU do the same thing with #3 to honor former Cyclone Brian Pearson.

    Also...Iowa State only has one active Iowa-native on the roster in Bubu. He would have been a 1 year old at the time of Street's accident. It was a great tradition, but I think the time had come.

    Good lord I feel old.

    It was above and beyond that ISU even elected to do this and I agree it's probably gone on long enough. (This coming from an Indianola grad also.)


    Nothing to see here mods. Keep moving.

    Re: #40 for Chris Street

    i always thought it was given to an Iowa born player. I say keep it going, being from Indianola its still a sore subject when brought up. Why did Harrison Barnes pick number 40 (not a statement just wondering if anyone knew)

    Re: #40 for Chris Street

    Yeah that would have been nice to honor Brian Pearson. I am not really sure we did anything to honor him. He was a great guy.

    We also had a kid that came here a few years ago, then transfered to somewhere in Nebraska. He ended up getting killed in a car wreck. Can't remember the kids name. I think it was Brandon something.

    Re: #40 for Chris Street

    It just seems that a tradition isn't something that goes away after a few years. I'm sure there are a ton of traditions at schools all around the country that the athletes have no knowledge of the origin.



    What ever happened to truth, justice and the American Way?

    HB looked up to Austen Arnaud when they played to together on the Ames High basketball (Austen was a senior, Barnes was a freshman). Austen wore #4, so he chose #40.

    That was Zach Fortune from Bellevue Nebraska.

    Re: #40 for Chris Street

    I never knew this, cool tradition.

    The real question is has Acie Earl stopped shaving a 40 into his hair? jk

    I remember when this happened. Sad. I was in middle school. I remember the T-shirts that came out for the Chris Street foundation. They were white w/ black lettering and had some great quote on them. Anyone remember?

    Also, has Jess Settles graduated yet?

    Are you sure that's it? Arnaud's a RS Senior this year and Harrison's a Freshman. That would make Harrison an 8th grader when Arnaud was a senior.

    No he got 2 rebounds against Wake Forest the other night.

    Zach Fortune was the kid that died.
