The former Hawkeye was coaching at the Iowa Football Club “Legends of Iowa” camp, and was fielding questions.
King was one of four Hawkeyes from last year’s team, and dozens of former Hawkeyes and NFL players coaching at the one-day camp, all attempting to share their knowledge and help Eastern Iowa kids get a little better at the game they all love.
Getting the younger guys to come coach, camp director and Iowa Football Club President Jim Molini said, is really what makes the biggest difference for the kids.
Kittle remembers attending a football camp as a kid and seeing Bob Sanders, his favorite player at the time, return to camp and speak.
As a young kid, that was easily the highlight of his camp experience.
Kittle, who is currently playing with the San Francisco 49ers, said he hopes to give off whatever knowledge and tips he can to the kids at camp, and while he’s in the area.
