Description

Kristian is a linebacker for the Baltimore Ravens. He is from Iola, Wisconsin and played for the Hawkeyes in '16-'19. He found early playing time as an athletic special teamer and played in over 40 games in the Black and Gold. In his Junior and Senior seasons he started at Middle Linebacker for Iowa teams that finished 9-4 and 10-3 including 2 Bowl victories over Mississippi St. and USC. We sat down with Kristian to talk his journey to Iowa City, Coach Seth Wallace, learning behind guys like Josey Jewell, Bo Bower, and Ben Niemann, being denied a Pro Day and entering the league during Covid, being on a team with Lamar Jackson and other elite NFL players, and more. The mindset of being 'overlooked' is present throughout his story and it was awesome to pick his brain on how he approaches being a fringe guy that works his ass off to make it.
