Wyatt Hanus will be playing football at the University of Dubuque this fall in the quarterback position.
Hanus graduated from North Tama this spring, where he was the varsity quarterback for three years. He lead the Redhawks to a 29-5 record.
In 2008 the Redhawks made school history by making it to the state championship title game, which they lost by only one point in overtime. They finished the season 12-1. In the final game Hanus broke a state record for all divisions of football for most passes completed in a state championship game. The week before in the state semi-final game, Hanus had a nearly perfect game, completing 22 of 24 passes.
Hanus leaves the Redhawks, where he broke 11 individual school records; finishing a high school career with 4,698 career passing yards and 50 career touchdowns. Hanus was named Redhawk Team MVP, 1st Team All State Quarterback, Iowa Newspaper Association 1st Team All State Quarterback, All State Sports Connection 1st Team Quarterback and Academic All State.
Hanus chose the University of Dubuque after a long recruiting process. The Spartans have an all new coaching staff, headed by Coach Zweifel, from Whitewater, Wisc. The school has a new sports complex and football field, which opened last fall.
