Dyersville Girl Among Iowa Hawkeyes’ 2019 Kid Captains

A Dyersville girl will be honored as one of the Kid Captains this Iowa Hawkeye football season.

Kid Captain is a partnership that began ten years ago between University of Iowa Stead Family Children’s Hospital and the Iowa Hawkeyes to honor pediatric patients and celebrate their inspirational stories.

8-year old Aubrey Bussan-Kluesner will serve as the Kid Captain for the Iowa/Minnesota game on November 16th.

Aubrey was diagnosed with a learning disorder, as well as ADHA, ODD, mixed receptive-expressive language disorder, anxiety disorder and speech sound disorder. Since her diagnoses, Aubrey has improved and continues to do well.

All Kid Captains receive a commemorative jersey, special recognition from UI Stead Family Children’s Hospital and the Iowa Hawkeyes. They are also invited to a special behind-the-scenes tour of Kinnick Stadium in August.
