    Troy Davis interview about ISU

    GRIDIRON: One-on-one with Troy Davis, illustrious former ISU running back - Iowa State Daily: Football

    Good read. Forgot he won all regions of the Heisman voting except for East Coast.
    Sounds like he's waiting to get invited for a game here? Maybe he wants ISU to foot the bill for traveling?

    Re: Troy Davis interview about ISU

    I'd love to see Troy get honored at a game. I was at his game against Missouri, and it's still the best I've seen live (Seneca's run might be the best play I've seen live).

    When he got inducted into the Letterwinners Hall of Fame in 07 he and Darren were at a game...not sure if it was the Iowa game that year or not

    Re: Troy Davis interview about ISU

    He said the current coaching staff had not been in touch with him about visiting sometime. I wish they would sooner than later. He deserves to be recognized for his contributions in my view.

    Re: Troy Davis interview about ISU

    Everybody in the stadium knew he was getting the ball and STILL nobody could stop him

    I'd like to see him get back to Ames sometime

    Re: Troy Davis interview about ISU

    Wish they could bring him up for a game.

    That Missouri game was when I took my official visit to ISU. That was a fun day to be around the team.

    On a side note during that visit I ate lunch with Troy's mom. IIRC it was her first trip to watch him play in Ames. Being an Iowa farm kid talking with her really drove home that not everyone grew up the way I did. I think that trip was only her first or second trip ever out of Florida. They truly had a tough life.

    Best line I've heard about Troy Davis was said by the Godfather John Walters, "Troy Davis was Mike Tyson in shoulder pads."

    Re: Troy Davis interview about ISU

    Guy was an incredible running back, with unreal vision..... but I also have to say, those were some awesome blockers. Very good OLines. A bunch of road graders.

    And some how, some way, Troy stayed academically eligible.

    The down field blocking was a thing of beauty on that team. Also helped that he could just run people over.

    Re: Troy Davis interview about ISU

    You do feel bad for guys like him though...that "primed" in a different era. College football was different back then.
