The Trice Legacy Foundation was created from a tragic event to promote and do good. Jack Trice’s life was ended before he could cement his legacy. He wanted to help educate his race and community by creating a culture around family and doing better each day. Iowa State is where the legacy was started but his goal was to teach further than just the Iowa borders. His accomplishment on the field is why we know his name, but the foundation recognizes him for more than just football.
