Throwback Thursday: Iowa State's 20s era "Jack Trice" Throwbacks
On Sept. 14, 2013, Iowa State unveiled 1920s era throwbacks for their in-state rivalry game with the Iowa Hawkeyes.
The uniforms were a tribute to the first African-American to don the Cyclone uniform, Jack Trice.
In fact, Trice was the only African-American athlete in any sport in all of the Big Six Conference, a precursor to today's Big 12 Conference.
Tragically, Trice was only able to play two games for Iowa State before sustaining fatal injuries in a game against Minnesota in 1923.
ISU honored Trice's memory and bravery by renaming Cyclone Stadium, Jack Trice Stadium in 1997.
