Analysis

In this annual battle for the Cy-Hawk Trophy, Wadley (5100/190) is a four-year regular who has accumulated 1,879 rushing yards (6.1avg) and 18 touchdowns during his career, while also catching 43 passes (9.5avg) and 4 more scores. His quickness and agility in space will be a test for the ISU defense led by Lanning (6014/235) who is making the unique conversion from quarterback to linebacker as a senior. After completing 56.9% of his 362 passes for 2,537 yards, 19 touchdowns and 7 interceptions, he has embraced the switch to defense and recorded 7 total tackles in the Cyclones’ opening game victory against Northern Iowa. Tough, smart and athletic, he helped Ankeny High School win state championships in both football and baseball, while also being named All-State in wrestling.
