On Saturday December 11 the Waterloo Blackhawk hockey team, honored the North Tama Redhawks for their first ever State Football Championship. The Blackhawks chose Coach Thoren and the team captains of the football team consisting of Nathan Jones, Lucas Hefty, and Brendon Boerm, to drop an honorable puck at the game vs. Des Moines Saturday.
When asking Brendon Boerm how honored and proud he felt about this great occasion he replied with, " It is a great opportunity and experience for my teammates and I. I truly appreciate that the Blackhawk's organization is inviting us to drop the ceremonial puck. It is a great honor."
When asking Nathan Jones if he is a fan of hockey he states "Yes, hockey is just like football, just on ice."
