Sedrick Shaw named honorary captain
September 28, 2012 - Andy Heintz
Before Iowa takes the field against Minnesota at 11:01 a.m. on Saturday, old-school Iowa fans will get a look at the program's all-time leading rusher.
Hawkeyes fans will welcome Sedrick Shaw back to Kinnick Stadium as he will serve as the honorary captain for the game against the Gophers.
Shaw lettered four years at Iowa from 1993-96 and still remains as the program's leading rusher with 4,156 yards. He will address the team before the game, be welcomed by the fans on the field just before kickoff and also will be present on the sidelines throughout the contest, which will air live on ESPN2.
A native of Austin, Texas, Shaw also rushed for 33 touchdowns while at Iowa. His other statistics include 438 receiving yards, 380 kickoff return yards and 35 total TDs.
The popular Iowa tailback was the only Iowa player to rush for more than 1,000 yards in three different seasons and is just one of five in the program to lead the team in rushing in three different seasons.
Shaw was a first-team all-Big Ten selection in 1996. He had two career 200-plus yard games.
He played three seasons in the National Football League after being drafted in the third round of the 1997 NFL Draft by the New England Patriots.
