Hawkeye coaches make appearance at annual I-Club event


At the linebacker spots, the Hawkeyes hope to fill the voids with numbers.

“In the middle there is Pat Angerer from Bettendorf and Jacody Coleman. So we got some guys in there,” Parker related. “At weakside linebacker, we got Jeremiha Hunter, Jeff Tarpinian and Troy Johnson from Florida and I think all three of them are decent. We got three guys working in there and they all got a chance, but nobody has claimed the No. 1 position. It’s good that you’ve got the competition there over the summer, but in some ways you would like the situation cleared up a little more.”

In the defensive backfield, there are a number of options.

“Bradley Fletcher had a great spring and started some for us last year. Jordan Bernstine had a shoulder operation and didn’t get to play in the spring, but he’ got a chance at corner. I think we are going to be a little better than people think. At safety, Brett Greenwood from Pleasant Valley is like a different guy this year. He’s gone from a little young guy in a little yellow school bus to a college football player.”

As the defensive coordinator, Parker has had a chance to note the progress of former Northeast High School standout, Mark Mahmens. He feels Mahmens is making strides in moving from defensive end to defensive tackle.

“He’s in there. He is a hard working kid,” Parker complemented. “He’s working hard as an inside guy. It takes time to learn how to play on the inside. He made more plays this spring than he did before.”

The Clinton County I-Club hosted an estimated 220 guests for the banquet.
