Fall Practice No. 9  | Interview with C. Fiedorowicz

IOWA CITY, Iowa -- After one full week of preseason football practices, the energy level is supposed to fade. Cheers, high-fives and general focus typically isn't equal to the opening day of drills.

With the 2013 University of Iowa Hawkeyes, you would have a nearly impossible task of differentiating between Practice No. 1 and No. 9, which was completed Monday morning inside Kinnick Stadium.

"Any time you go for a week straight in pads, it gets pretty tough," UI senior tight end C.J. Fiedorowicz said. "Guys have to get their mind right and get the right amount of sleep. So far we have had a good tempo going and everyone is bringing energy to practice."

Fiedorowicz is coming off a season where he caught 45 passes for 433 yards and a touchdown. The 6-foot-7, 265-pound senior is a three-year letterwinner who sits atop the depth chart at tight end that includes letterwinners Ray Hamilton, Jake Duzey and Henry Krieger Coble.

"It's my senior year and I have to bring that leadership," Fiedorowicz said. "One of my jobs as a senior is to bring energy to practice every day and do your best."

Four freshmen are also playing tight end: Ike Boettger, George Kittle, Peter Pekar and Jon Wisnieski.

"We push each other every day," Fiedorowicz said. "There is a lot of competition in practice, but at the same time, we're all good buddies off-the-field. We know what we have to do in practice to compete."

Single-game tickets for all seven Hawkeye home contests inside Kinnick Stadium are available on hawkeyesports.com. Iowa opens the season Aug. 31, hosting Northern Illinois at 2:30 p.m. (CT).
