North Linn Grad Could Get His First Start for Iowa in Saturday’s Game

Offensive lineman Kyler Schott, a North Linn grad from Coggon, is quickly becoming Iowa’s latest walk-on success story.

With Cole Banwart sidelined with injury and tackle Alaric Jackson going down with a knee injury, Schott entered the game and played well in a win over Miami of Ohio. The redshirt sophomore could get his first start at right guard in Saturday’s Big Ten opener against Rutgers.

Iowa coach Kirk Ferentz has not been surprised by Schott’s success.

Ferentz say Schott worked hard to get into the lineup.

Saturday’s game can be heard on KMCH, with kickoff at 11 am.
