Cody Ash

Denver, CO


There are two things that will always come to mind for me for Hawkeye moments…the first has been spending crisp, autumn afternoons playing catch with our son before Iowa football games. I’m not sure there could be a better way to spend an afternoon than with friends, family, food, fantastic weather and of course Iowa football. The second was the moment we realized our daughter would become a Hawkeye herself. Most kids from eastern Iowa grow up dreaming to be a Hawkeye – she was one of the fortunate few to have her dream come true. – Jeff Disterhoft
