Rogers' season comes to an end

After missing three games due to a high ankle sprain, Brad Rogers returned for the playoffs last week, but saw his senior season come to an end as previously undefeated Toledo Central Catholic lost to Powell Olentangy Liberty. The 5-foot-10, 230-pound Rogers was obviously disappointed with the 34-7 loss, but proud of his team's efforts this year.

Rogers was limited to playing on just defense in the game after coming back from injury. Earlier in the season, he was splitting carries with Alabama commit Mike Marrow, but still managed to put up a couple 100 yard games, including a 126-yard, two touchdown effort against rival St. John's Jesuit in week four. Overall, the future Hawkeye felt he was much improved as a runner this year.

Rogers, who says he has watched every Iowa game on television this season, has been especially impressed with the Hawkeyes' running game this year as Shonn Greene currently ranks among the leading rushers in the nation. The future Hawkeye will get to see Greene run in person this weekend as he plans to be in Kinnick Stadium to watch Iowa host Penn State on Saturday.
