Holloway is Honorary Captain

Nov. 9, 2006

Former Iowa wide receiver Warren Holloway has been selected to be Iowa’s honorary captain for Saturday’s home finale against Wisconsin. The Hawkeyes face the Badgers in a televised game with kickoff set for 11:02 a.m. in sold out Kinnick Stadium.

Holloway, a three year letterman (2002-04) was the receiver on what many call the greatest reception in Iowa football history. On the final play of the 2004 Capital One Bowl game against LSU, quarterback Drew Tate threw a 56-yard touchdown pass to Holloway giving Iowa a come-from-behind 30-25 victory. It was the Holloway’s first career touchdown.

During his Iowa career, Holloway caught 33 passes for 328 yards. He played on Big Ten championship teams in 2002 and 2004. He started all 12 games his senior year and was given the team’s 2004 Offensive Hustle Award.

Warren will accompany the Iowa captains to the center of the field for the pre-game coin-flip. He will also be with the Hawkeyes on the sidelines and in the locker room before and after the game.
