Senior Day is a special day for the team, coaches, fans, players, and players’ families. Saturday, Iowa’s Senior Day against Illinois, there was a special moment for senior defensive back Henry Marchese.

The Hawkeyes defensive back had the opportunity to share the moment with his mother, father, and twin brother Michael Marchese, tight end for Illinois.

That’s pretty special.

Henry was met by his parents at midfield with his parents and his brother, Michael, in the teams’ opposing uniform.

Henry has played in five games in his career at Iowa as he has accumulated seven total tackles. His brother, Michael, has accumulated 45 total tackles, 27 solo tackles, two interceptions, three pass breakups, and two forced fumbles. He caught one reception for 15 yards.

Iowa defeated Illinois 33-23 at home behind a strong rushing performance. Iowa (9-2; 6-2 in B1G) will finish the 2021 regular season on the road versus Nebraska (3-8; 1-7 in B1G). Illinois (4-7; 3-5 in B1G play) will finish their season at home versus Northwestern (3-8; 1-7 in B1G).
