Waukon High School senior Asher Fahey signed a National Letter of Intent during NCAA Division I football’s regular signing day Wednesday, February 5 to join the University of Iowa football program as a preferred walk-on player, meaning he has secured a spot on the team but is not yet considered a scholarship player. “They were the main school that recruited me and their facilities are top of the line,” Fahey said of his decision to take his football talents to the University of Iowa. “Their coaches have been really great to work with, and they will push you to be your best; their practices that I’ve been down there to watch were really intense.”

Fahey said the Iowa coaches have been recruiting him as an offensive lineman with his options open at this point as to position specifics on that line. “That’s one of the biggest things Iowa football is known for, their offensive line,” Fahey said. “It’s an honor to be recruited to be a part of that.”
