Former City High football players Dan McCarney (North Texas head coach) and Andrew McNulty, (North Texas Quarterback) will come back home to Iowa City on Saturday at Kinnick Stadium.

“McNulty was 46-2 as a Little Hawk. He was a winner,” Joe Wilcox, Offensive Coordinator for The Little Hawks, said.

Dan McCarney, a Little Hawk all state guard was named 1st team all-state on the Des Moines Register Poll, and 2nd team all state by the I.D.P.A..

McCarney won a state championship with The Little Hawks in 1970 and McNulty was part of a state championship in 2009 and led The Little Hawks back to the state championship as quarterback in 2010.  McNulty, in the state championship, defended Darboh who is now a starting wide receiver at Michigan.

McCarney recalled his high school Missouri Valley Championship as one of his favorites.

“I will never forget the feeling I had as I watched the ball go through the uprights.  I’ve spent 34 years as a Division I player and coach in both the Big Ten and Big Twelve and had numerous conference and bowl championships, but that MVC Championship in 1970 ranks right up there with any of them,” Dan McCarney, North Texas Head Coach, said.
