New movie tells story of Iowa football hero Kurt Warner

News, Sports

September 22nd, 2021 by Ric Hanson

(Radio Iowa) – The movie trailer is now out for “American Underdog, The Kurt Warner Story,” and it promises to be a wintertime blockbuster — at least here in the Hawkeye State. The film stars Zachary Levi in the title role about the Burlington native who played high school football in Cedar Rapids, then at the University of Northern Iowa.

Audiences in Iowa will see plenty of familiar images, including Levi as the younger Warner stocking shelves at Hy-Vee, running rural roads beside frozen cornfields and donning the U-N-I Panthers and Iowa Barnstormers uniforms. In this scene, Levi is talking with a co-worker at the grocery store while staring at a Wheaties cereal box featuring the Miami Dolphins’ star quarterback Dan Marino.

Warner overcame a host of setbacks and challenges to eventually become a two-time N-F-L M-V-P, a Super Bowl champion and Hall of Fame quarterback. American Underdog is due on the big screen December 25th.

Drake Hoops Fest gets underway at 5 p.m. with a social happy hour featuring many of the restaurants and establishments in the Court Avenue Entertainment District. Starting at 6:30 p.m., the Bulldogs take the court for their public debut led by Missouri Valley Men’s Coach of the Year Darian DeVries and first-year women’s head coach Allison Pohlman.

The festivities continue after the basketball ends as Silent Disco by Hush takes over the intersection as the sun sets.

UNI’s Mark Farley discusses bye week

Sports

September 21st, 2021 by Ric Hanson

(Radio Iowa) – UNI coach Mark Farley was pleased with quarterback Theo Day’s performance in Saturday’s 44-3 win over St. Thomas of Minnesota. The Michigan State transfer passed for 193 yards and a touchdown in his first start since his senior season in high school.

Day has three touchdown passes in six quarters of actions.

The Panthers have a bye week before opening Missouri Valley play at home against Youngstown State. Farley likes the way the offense is showing signs of progress.

Farley says as the receiver group gets more healthy the offense should get even better.

Farley says the goal for the defense is to build depth.
