The University of Iowa announced Monday that senior Hawkeye football players and head coach Kirk Ferentz will preside over a youth football camp, scheduled for May 4 at Johnston Middle School.

"The players, staff and I take great pride in working with these kids to become better players, and to install the importance of having fun and being respectful," Ferentz said in a statement. "Our initial camp in Johnston last spring reached capacity and was well received."
