    Which Senior's did Rhoads recruit? And Congrats to all!

    I was sitting with a good view of CPR personally addressing each Senior as he was introduced. I was struck by his response with each and notably those that he had not recruited out of HS. It was obvious that it was not just a handshake and a pat on the back. This group has turned the program around to the point where every game on the schedule is winnable, which was not the case 4 years ago. Kudos to them.It was fitting that Jerome Tiiller caught a TD in his final game. Congrats to you Jerome, you took the right path in your career at Ames and showed us the personal integrity to stick with your goal when you came North 5 years ago.So.....can anybody list the total group and the route they took to running through that Senior Day tunnel yesterday?

    I'm probably missing someone, but here are most of them. My recollection is fuzzy about if Reeves was contacted by Chiz prior to the transition. We all know the Jake Knott story about how Chiz didn't think he was scholarship worthy. Very happy he was wrong about that and at that Klein stuck with us.

    Cheers to our seniors and thanks for a great foundation for Cyclone football.

    Carter Bykowski OL HS Chiz
    Sam Tautolo OL JUCO Rhoads
    Brayden Burris OL HS Chiz
    Kurt Hammerschmidt TE HS Chiz
    Ricky Howard TE JUCO Rhoads
    Aaron Horne WR JUCO Rhoads
    Jerome Tiller WR HS Chiz
    Josh Lenz WR HS Chiz
    Chris Young WR JUCO Rhoads
    Steele Jantz QB JUCO Rhoads
    Roosevelt Maggitt DE HS Chiz
    Jake McDonough DL HS Chiz
    Ben Durbin DL TR. Rhoads
    Cleon Laing DL HS Chiz
    Henry Simon DL JUCO Rhoads
    Rony Nelson DL JUCO Rhoads
    A.J. Klein LB HS Chiz/Rhoads
    Jake Knott LB HS Rhoads
    Durrell Givens DB JUCO Rhoads
    Jeremy Reeves DB HS Rhoads/Chiz (?)
