You might remember this former QB for the Iowa Hawkeyes. He was a 3-year starter and finished with a career record of 27-12. He ended his career with the second most touchdown passes in school history, second most passing yards, 3rd in total offense, and second in career pass attempts and completions, according to the Minnesota Vikings website. If you're a Hawkeye fan, you likely remember the name, Nate Stanley.

Nate was a 7th-round draft pick in the 2020 NFL draft by the Minnesota Vikings and back on September 1st, the former Hawkeye QB filed an injury grievance against the Minnesota Vikings, according to Vikings Wire Today.


Stanley was released by the Vikings back in July, however, he's looking to get paid for the season as he claims he's suffered a football-related injury. According to Vikings Wire Today, the injury involves a pain that runs down his leg which is related to a nerve.

As for now, it's a waiting game for both sides. Nate will wait on the NFL to make a decision and the Vikings will have 172,000 less in cap space to work with until that decision has been made. Once that happens, which could take weeks, Nate could be awarded an NFL injury settlement, which he claims he deserves.

Behind the Scenes with the Iowa Hawkeyes-Iowa's Ladies Football Academy 2022

Have you ever wondered what it's like to be behind the scenes with the Iowa Hawkeyes? When you're part of the Ladies Football academy you get the full experience of what it's like to be on the field in Kinnick Stadium with Kirk Ferentz, coaches and the Iowa Hawkeye football players.
Take a look inside the locker rooms and other places regular people can't normally see.

Here's a bit of history.
The Ladies Football Academy has been a University of Iowa football tradition for over a decade. This year's event was the last; held on June 11, 2022. 665 women participated in the day-long event raising funds for the University of Iowa Stead Family Children's Hospital. Over $500,000 was raised this year alone.

Since the tradition began in 2010 (the academy was canceled two years during the pandemic) the program has raised nearly $3 million.

The ladies must raise at least $500 to participate in the football camp, but in exchange, they can meet the Iowa Hawkeye football players, coaches, and trainers, get autographs, tour the football facilities and run drills with the players. It's definitely a once-in-a-lifetime bucket list experience.

Let's take a look behind the scenes in this year's final Ladies Football Academy.
