The honor of my race, family, and self are at stake. Everyone is expecting me to do big things. I will!
John "Jack" Trice
It's about more than just football!
He was the son of former slaves, but he was destined for so much more. His family knew there was something special about him, and his untimely, racially-motivated death in 1923 would mean something for the honor of his race, family, and self. The country would know his name and he would never be forgotten... Jack Trice.
Over the years at Iowa State University, things would change, but his name and legacy only grew stronger. A statue was erected, a field named in his honor, and ultimately an entire Division 1 football stadium would be named in his honor - the only such stadium in Div. 1 college football to be named after an African American.
It's your chance to help students do big things and fulfill Jack's, as well as their own legacies.
I WILL help...
