Cliff King Named Honorary Captain

Oct. 28, 2010

IOWA CITY, IA – Former University of Iowa fullback Cliff King has been named honorary captain for Saturday’s game against Michigan State. The Hawkeyes face the Spartans in an ABC/ESPN televised game with kickoff set for 2:36 p.m., in Kinnick Stadium. The game is sold out, which means Iowa has sold out 48 of its last 50 home games.


King played at Iowa (1989-93) during the Hayden Fry coaching regime. He was a three-time letterman and part of Hawkeye teams that made it to the Rose, Holiday and Alamo Bowls. He was considered an outstanding blocking fullback. He rushed 56 times for 247 yards and four touchdowns during his career. King also caught 12 passes for 109 yards. He came to Iowa as a walk-on and saw action in 38 games during his Iowa playing days.

King has for years been one of NIKE’s top University football representatives. He serves as a member of the company’s football sports marketing group. He works with collegiate and NFL teams. The Iowa Hawkeyes are one of his primary clients.

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