Everyone is expecting me to do big things. Everyone is expecting me to do big things. I will!

Jack Trice was Iowa State's first African-American athlete. He died of injuries sustained during a football game in 1923. He was 21.

The Jack Trice Commemoration — 100 years after his untimely death — honors Jack's brief life and enduring legacy by sharing his story and inspiring meaningful conversations about race, personal character and a commitment to doing one's very best.

Oct 5, 1923

To whom it may concern:

My thoughts just before the first real college game of my life. The honor of my race, family, & self are at stake. Everyone is expecting me to do big things. I will! My whole body & soul are to be thrown recklessly about on the field tomorrow. Every time the ball is snapped I will be trying to do more than my part.

On all defensive plays I must break thru the opponents line (and) stop the play in their territory. Beware of mass interference & fight low with your eyes open and toward the play. Roll block the interference. Watch out for cross bucks and reverse end runs. Be on your toes every minute if you expect to make good.

Jack

Previous Honors

Iowa State University has previously honored the legacy of Jack Trice in several ways. Those honors did not come quickly, completely or without controversy, but they do recognize Jack’s important and inspiring place in the history of the University — as well as the persistence of students, faculty and staff, alumni, fans and other supporters in keeping Jack’s story alive.

Jack Trice Stadium

Iowa State started construction of a new football stadium in the 1970s. Student leaders and faculty petitioned to name the stadium for Jack Trice. In 1984, after a protracted and sometimes contentious debate, the Iowa Board of Regents approved a recommendation to designate the stadium as “Cyclone Stadium” and the playing field as “Jack Trice Field.” Thirteen years later – in 1997 – the Board of Regents voted to name the stadium after Jack Trice. Today, Jack Trice Stadium is the only major college football stadium named for an African-American.

Jack Trice Statue

In 1984 the Student Government at Iowa State voted to allocate funds to construct a statue honoring Jack Trice. The statue was originally erected on central campus between Carver and Beardshear Halls in 1989. From 1997 to 2019, the statue was located north of Jack Trice Stadium before being moved back to Central Campus.

Jack Trice Character Award

Established in 1984 with student funds allocated by the Student Government, the Jack Trice Character Award is a scholarship that recognizes an Iowa State undergraduate or incoming freshman who embodies the traits and character of Jack Trice. More than 50 students have benefited from the scholarship since its inception.

Jack Trice Endowed Scholarship

The Jack Trice Endowed Scholarship was established in 2021 to highlight the Jack Trice story and help Iowa State University and its football program raise awareness to the nation’s social justice issues. It is awarded annually to a Black, senior student-athlete on the football team. The recipient is selected by Head Coach Matt Campbell and honors a student-athlete who portrays the traits of Jack Trice such as courage, character, selflessness, leadership, dedication to the community and academic/athletic achievement.
