    IOWA CITY, Iowa -- Scott Helverson was somewhat of a trend-setter for the University of Iowa football program in the mid-1980s.

    First, the 6-foot-2, 195-pounder from Des Moines, Iowa, was a walk-on, who through hard work, eventually gained a scholarship and became a team Most Valuable Player. Second, he revolutionized the term `possession receiver' and as a senior, caught 54 passes for 703 yards and five touchdowns.


    Helverson was on the minds of many Hawkeye fans on Sunday, Feb. 3, during Super Bowl XLII in Phoenix, Ariz. It was an atypical NFL season in the fact that there were no Iowa alumni playing in the Super Bowl. There was, however, one former Hawkeye participating in the big game.

    Helverson.

    For the past five years Helverson has been working NFL games as an official. He was the back judge for Super Bowl XLII, won by the New York Giants, 17-14, in dramatic fashion over the heavily-favored New England Patriots.
