ESPN: Moeaki Eyes Senior Season

July 10, 2009

IOWA CITY, Iowa — “When Iowa opens preseason practice next month, Hawkeyes players might want to keep their distance from Tony Moeaki,” writes ESPN staffer Adam Rittenberg in an entry to his Big Ten blog earlier this week.

“Luck hasn’t been on Moeaki’s side for most of his career at Iowa, and superstitious teammates should probably steer clear of the fifth-year senior tight end.

“After serving as a reserve in 2005 and 2006, Moeaki has endured a string of injuries that limited his production.

“A broken hand and a dislocated elbow cut short his 2007 season four games in. He missed the following spring while recovering from wrist surgery, but hurt his left foot early in preseason camp. Another surgery followed, and Moeaki missed the first two games last fall. But the foot problem led to calf and hamstring problems, which kept Moeaki sidelined, and he also sustained a concussion.”
