Connecting in Dubuque

I was pleased to spend time this past weekend in Dubuque with Cuyler Berwanger, son of first Heisman Trophy winner @Jay Berwanger. Jackie Berwanger accompanied her husband on their drive from the Chicago suburbs.

Activities included a tour of the Dalzell Field construction site, where a Berwanger statute is planned, with school officials, plus a meeting with Doug Horstmann, schools Foundation president. Mr. Berwanger (left) donated a ball autographed by his father and 11 other Heisman Trophy winners.

It was a super Saturday morning.

Looking for title help

I am in the home stretch of completing the first full biography of Jay Berwanger, Dubuque native and winner of college football's first Heisman Trophy.

Please help me decide the title of the book.

 Take my two-question survey.
