    Go to SportsReport and you'll see that there are 2 walk-on stories. Kid from IA and a kid from down south.


    NHL teams need to be added to the favorite teams section.

    Re: Clinton HS Walkon

    A good walk-on program would be SO huge for this program. Sounds like a pretty nice get. We need to continue to show interest in these guys even if we don't offer them scholly's.

    I was talking to my GFs dad this weekend, and he was talking about how some kids from their hometown had talked to ISU, UNI, and Iowa about trying to walk on as completely unrecruited walk-ons. These kids came back just gushing about CPR and the whole ISU staff. Apparently the other staffs more or less ignored them, but CPR and company were very interested in talking with them, and letting them try and prove themselves through the walk on process. They weren't promised PT or making the team, or anything like that, but it was just the fact that they were treated with dignity rather than ignored (like the other schools) that just made them so excited.


    In 1984, I was hospitalized for approaching perfection.

    Re: Clinton HS Walkon

    If you look back at the Nebraska glory days, they had a lot of impact guys that were walk ons. The fullback position especially was typically a walk on kid from Nebraska.

    Re: Clinton HS Walkon

    I don't know anything about this kid specifically, but I know the AD at Clinton and he said this senior class is among the best they've ever had. Great attitude, work ethic, strong academics and just, in general, outstanding citizens. With that in mind, I'm willing to bet this kid turns out to be a diamond in the rough.

    Well, these kids were coming to the coaching staffs, putting their names out there. The thing that stuck out to them was that the ISU coaches didn't just ignore them like the others. They treated them with respect, and these kids walked away just raving about the coaching staff. It's hard not to feel good about it.

    Eventually, it's gonna help us get some kid we would use a scholarship on when his buddies that tried to walk-on somewhere weren't treated like crap.

    Re: Clinton HS Walkon

    I am pretty proud of what our walk-ons do in the program, with how ISU deals with them, and with the coaches that we have in place right now to get them forged into something we root for on Saturdays.
