Iowa tackle Brandon Scherff is working hard as he prepares for his senior season.
IOWA CITY, Iowa (KTIV) -
There's not much of an off-season for college football players.
Hawkeye offensive tackle Brandon Scherff spent a little time in his hometown of Denison, Iowa, hunting and fishing.
Scherff is a likely first round NFL draft pick next year and now he's back to work.
"You just go at it a day at a time," said Scherff. "We're just focusing on workouts, getting better and you have to come in and watch film on your off time too. That's what we're trying to do. Workout at 6 AM, rest, come back in and watch some film later and try to get some extra work in."
Scherff was a first-team all-Big Ten pick last season and was named Iowa's offensive MVP.
Iowa's first three games of the 2014 season are at home against Northern Iowa, Ball State and Iowa State.
