Last week, Oskaloosa senior Aaron Blom announced he would walk on at the University of Iowa next fall as a kicker. Blom talks about his decision.
“I really like the coaching staff and I like the academic programs that they have available. And it just felt like home, so I figured there was no time to wait.”
Blom says he also had a scholarship offer from Western Illinois, a Division I-AA school. His 16 career field goals are most in Oskaloosa history…and he also holds the school record for longest field goal—a 50 yarder against Mount Pleasant in 2016. Blom goes into this season ninth on the Indians’ all-time scoring list with 177 points.
