DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — The University of Iowa’s football and men’s basketball announcer Gary Dolphin says he’s gotten a clean bill of health after undergoing treatment for prostate cancer. Dolphin told The Des Moines Register on Wednesday that’s he’s “ready to go for a great year of Hawkeye football.” He’s entering his 16th season as the play-by-play radio announcer. Dolphin was diagnosed with prostate cancer a year ago. Iowa opens the season against Northern Illinois on Sept. 1 at Soldier Field in Chicago.
