2018 In-State Tight End Anthony Torres Is Starting to Turn Heads at Summer Camps

2018 In-State Tight End Anthony Torres Is Starting to Turn Heads at Summer Camps

We have heard about how beneficial summer football camps are for the coaches, but for most players it is a chance to grab someone's attention. 2018 tight end Anthony Torres is from Mishawka, Indiana, a town with a population of just north of 48,000 according to the 2010 census. Torres told Hoosier Huddle in a phone interview that he is thankful that schools put on summer camps saying, "not many coaches are going to come up and see me play. These camps are huge for me because I can get exposure to teams that would never come up and see me play, especially ones I would want to play for."

Throwback Thursday: Iowa 35 Indiana 27

Throwback Thursday: Iowa 35 Indiana 27

We are entering the final 1/3 of the 2015 regular season in our Throwback Thursday Series. Today we look back at IU’s 35-27 loss to Iowa. The score of closer than the game actually was as Nate Sudfeld struggled against a stout defense and Jordan Howard’s monster effort just could not get them over the hill. Whether or not you thought Iowa’s 12-0 regular season was a little fluky, this was still a very strong Iowa team and Indiana could have easily had their will broken early on, but IU fought until the end and really set up for an exciting stretch run.

Opponent

Iowa Hawkeyes

Location

Saturday November 7th /3:37pm/ Memorial Stadium/ (Bloomington, IN) 

Why They Played

The Hawkeyes and Hoosiers met as their crossover game with the West Division

What The Game Meant

Coming off a bye week the Hoosiers were rested and ready to knock off their first top-10 team since 1987. The game would have rejuvenated the fan base that has grown frustrated with what is now a five-game losing streak.
