And now he's Brandon Scherff: punt returner.
Don't worry, Hawkeye fans – not on any sort of regular basis. But the senior offensive lineman was having a bit of fun at the end of a recent Iowa football practice, taking the last return at the end of a special-teams drill.
It's a scary prospect, though, to have that 6-foot-5, 320-pound frame barreling your way.
Look who he's running over, to boot – that's full-time freight train Mark Weisman, who, at a generally bruising 6 feet and 240 pounds, suddenly looks dwarfish.
We've said it before, but it bears repeating: Be glad that Scherff is on the Hawkeyes' side.
