LOOK: Iowa honoring memory of former Hawkeye Damon Bullock in season opener
Iowa will be wearing a special helmet decal in its season opener to honor Damon Bullock.
A running back with the Hawkeyes from 2011-14, Bullock accumulated 1,074 yards rushing and 616 yards receiving with 5 total touchdowns. Unfortunately, Bullock also passed away this year in an accident. He was 25-years-old.
As a way to honor and show respect for the former Hawkeye, Iowa players will wear a unique “DB5” helmet decal in the season opener against Miami (OH). Hawkeye Football shared a look at the design:
This past spring, we lost a member of our football family. Damon Bullock lost his life far too early. Tomorrow night, he will be with us on the field as we honor him with a DB5 decal on the back of our helmets.
You are forever in our hearts, DBull. pic.twitter.com/kS8fMNQKu9
