Damon Bullock #4, Video Capture - see video below



Damon Bullock, the 6ft 200lbs senior Iowa running back, first showcased his talents at Mansfield High School rushing for over 1,600 yards and 22 touchdowns in 239 carries during the 2010 season according to Yahoo Sports.

In a profile at Hawkeyenation.com in 2011, "His high school coach told HawkeyeInsider.com that Bullock was overlooked, having missed all but three games his junior year due to an injury. As a senior, he rushed for over 1,600 yards and his coach said that Bullock has legit 4.4 speed."

The Gazette reports Bullock was lightly recruited coming out of high school and has faced his share of injuries and setbacks during his time at Iowa but has also been a bright spot at times for the Hawkeyes scoring the game winning touchdown and 150 yards against Northern Illinois as a sophomore. He sits at 1,000 yards and 4TDs for his college career.

His playing time, or more specifically his carries, dropped from 33 percent of the teams carries in 2012 to 21 percent last year in part due to injuries and in part due to a stable of capable backs.

Bullock has taken snaps at wide receive and coaches applaud his ball catching skills but they're clear he's a running back and making the move to a new position at this point in his career there isn't happening.

While the number of carries is uncertain Bullock will share time running the ball though his future may be in comedy. Bullock and Jordan Lomax run a thriving Vine account, while most of their videos have some language we've embedded a few of their funny and suitable for work/family/kids video's below his high school football highlights video (click to enable audio).


Is there someone who you think we should spotlight, profile or otherwise celebrate? If so, we'd love to hear from you.
