Goebel Recaps Senior Season

National Recruiting Analyst

Iowa commit Colin Goebel talks about how his senior season went and looks forward to his Iowa future.

Naperville North offensive lineman Colin Goebel is now done with his high school career and is looking ahead to his future as an Iowa Hawkeye. While his team made a playoff appearance, they did fall short of their ultimate goal.

"[Our season did] not [go] as well as we had planned," he said. "Our goal was a state title, but we lost in the first round of playoffs to finish with a 5-5 record."

However, the 6'4, 275-lb Goebel, lived up to his billing as one of the best linemen in a state loaded with talent at that position.

"I felt I played really well and I was a lot stronger and forceful then last season. I couldn't have done this without the help of my teammates in the offseason and the team's lifting."

Focused on his season first, Goebel has not been to any Hawkeye games this year, but says, "I will be at the Purdue and Nebraska games."

He will also use this offseason to prepare himself for the college level.

"I plan on putting some weight back on, lifting hard, and keep working on my football technique."

Most importantly, he is simply ready to be a Hawkeye and ready to help them get to where they want to go.

"I am so excited to be a part of the Iowa football tradition. I can't wait to start putting work in with my future teammates, and work towards our goals as a team."
