Jan. 4, 2006

Seven University of Iowa senior football players have been asked to play in prestigious post-season all-star games later this month.

Playing in the Jan 28th Senior Bowl in Mobile, AL, will be linebackers Chad Greenway and Abdul Hodge. Both are members of the 2005 all-Big Ten team.

Invited to play in the Jan. 21st Hula Bowl in Honolulu, HI., are defensive backs Antwan Allen, Jovon Johnson, wide receivers Clinton Solomon and Ed Hinkel and center Brian Ferentz.

“We’re extremely happy and proud this group of seniors has been rewarded for their excellent careers at Iowa,” said Iowa Head Coach Kirk Ferentz. “We know they’ll do a great job of representing our program in these outstanding all-star games.”
