SIOUX CITY, Iowa (KTIV) - The Hawkeye football team started spring practice Wednesday, but a former Sioux City star is no longer on the team. Kirk Ferentz announced that Bishop Heelan grad Michael Malloy has left the team, but is still enrolled at Iowa.

Malloy red-shirted as a freshman as Iowa, but was the Hawkeyes leading rusher in last year's spring game.

He ran for over 1,600 yards as a junior at Heelan with 31 touchdowns. He played in just two games as a senior for the Crusaders before suffering a season-ending knee injury.

Malloy did not get into a game for Iowa last season, but was optimistic when he was interviewed by 'Sports Fource' in August.

"We always have to be ready and that's how everybody on our team prepares," said Malloy. "I think we're doing a really good job of that and I think we did a good job of that last year, being prepared. I just got to be ready and wait my turn."

Malloy still has two years of eligibility remaining.
