Former Iowa Standout Jerry Hilgenberg Passes Away

Wilton Native Earned First-Team All-American Honors in 1953

Thanks Rob for sharing this. This hits home as my Dad was born in the same year and passed away last month. My father also served in the US Airforce.

I remember my Dad fondly talking about those 50’s teams.
Sorry for your loss, D.

I've read a lot about those 50s teams and have had the good fortune to interview guys from that era. Some great stories.
