ESPN Feature on Kinnick Wave Will Bring You To Tears [WATCH]
When you first heard about it, you knew it was going to be special. The 'Kinnick Wave,' as it's become known, is an amazing moment during every home Iowa football game. Many feature stories have been done on this new tradition in Iowa City, but none has been done better than the one ESPN aired this morning.
When ESPN contacted us Friday to ask if they could use a portion of the video we shot at the first home game this season, we gladly obliged. It's just a few seconds of a powerful video that clearly illustrates how much the wave means to the patients and their families at the UI Stead Family Children's Hospital. It also shows how much the Ferentz family continues to struggle with the loss of a beloved granddaughter.
Grab a tissue for this one and get ready to wave to all those precious kids and their families next Saturday when Iowa hosts Illinois.
