Game ball run will be back
August 27, 2013 - Bennet Goldstein
The annual Army ROTC game ball run will be back through Marshalltown Sept. 13, the day before the big football game between Iowa and Iowa State. ROTC cadets run the ball through towns from Iowa City to Ames and then ride in vehicles between the towns. The cadets will run through Main Street in Marshalltown at approximately 2:11 p.m. on Sept. 13. They will run to the Iowa Veterans Home and spend time with veterans before getting back on the road to Ames. State Center residents can expect them to be passing through at approximately 4:05 p.m. that day. The cadets will present the ball on the field during the big game, which is at 5 p.m. Sept. 14 at Jack Trice Stadium in Ames.
