    Who wore number 44 for ISU?

    The number 44 is special in the world of pro sports, and my favorite pro uniform number: Hank Aaron, Chuck Foreman, Floyd Little, Reggie Jackson, Gale Sayers, John Riggins, et. al.

    In the history of ISU football, and ISU sports in general, who wore number 44?

    This thread is influenced by an earlier thread asking about everyone's fave ISU uniform number.

    The best ever #44, in my opinion, was Jeff Grayer. It's pretty telling that nobody else has worn the #44 since his eligibility expired...

    Yep, it may be because it was "retired" to honor Grayer!

    Gale Sayers wore #44? Please don't tell the Chicago Bears faithful that or the HOF. They think he wore #40 all those years.

    Re: Who wore number 44 for ISU?

    Ryan Harklau was the first fb player in recent memory to stand out while wearing that number. Oddly, he was a DT and wore it (which is part of what makes college fb great)

    Re: Who wore number 44 for ISU?

    Football notables:
    Tim Dobbins (04-05)
    Justin Eilers (01)
    Ryan Harklau (96-00)
    Larry Crawford (78-80)
    Barry Hill (71-74)
    Jock Johnson (68-70)

    Women's Basketball:
    Only 5 players (in 37 years) have worn #44, and only 2 since 1991. Jocelyn Anderson (08-09) is probably the most notable of that group.

    Barry Hill was a very good DB...played in the NFL with the Dolphins for several years.



    I cheer for two teams, Iowa State and whoever is playing the hawkeyes.

    I believe he wore #48 in college.

    Barry Hill still has the career interception record for the Big 8 conference, but the Big 8 wasn't a passing conference by any means back then.

    Bonus points if you can name the player whose record he broke.
