Vincent working hard

As future Hawkeye wide receiver Austin Vincent gets ready to start his senior season, he is not too worried about individual numbers, just the number of wins he can help his DeSoto team get in 2010. We caught up with the 6-foot-1, 176-pound Vincent to talk about the upcoming season, the hard work he has put in during camp in the Texas heat this month, when he will make his official visit to Iowa, and much more.

Q: How is camp going so far?

VINCENT: It's been going real good. We're coming along and looking real nice out there.

Q: How have you been doing?

VINCENT: I've been doing good. It's been real hot out there, probably the hardest two-a-days I've ever had, but we've just had to fight through it.

Q: Have you scrimmaged any other teams yet?

VINCENT: We scrimmage tomorrow actually against John Tyler.

Q: When do you guys open the season?

VINCENT: We open up on August 27th against Leander.

Q: Do you feel poised for a bigger year this season?

VINCENT: Yeah, I feel like I'm going to have a better season than last year because I've grown up and matured and learned the game a lot more. There's always room for improvement, so I've just been working hard and trying to get better.

As a junior, Vincent caught 17 passes for 214 yards and two touchdowns as part of a DeSoto receiving corps that includes four other Division I recruits. In June, he verbally committed to Iowa over scholarship offers from Arkansas, Arizona, Utah, Louisiana Tech, and Iowa State.
