Cotton brothers meet on gridiron for last time
Iowa State defensive back Darian Cotton, right in the photo at left, grabs the jersey of brother Jordan Cotton, Iowa, in an intrastate, intra-family game Saturday at Jack Trice Stadium in Ames. The Mt. Pleasant High School graduates, sons of former Iowa running back Marshall Cotton and Cindy Cotton, both wear No. 23.
This past weekend marked the last time the brothers will meet on the field, as Jordan Cotton is playing his final season with Iowa. The senior returned a kick for 28 yards and rushed for three yards in Saturday’s matchup.
After suffering losses to Iowa State the last two years, the older Cotton brother earned bragging rights this season after the Hawkeyes’ 27-21 win.
