Welsh enjoying senior season

One year ago, future Iowa Hawkeye offensive lineman Sean Welsh saw his junior season at Springboro end with a disappointing 3-7 record. This year, the 6-foot-3, 275-pound Welsh has led a complete turnaround as the Panthers are currently 7-0 and looking forward to the post-season. We caught up with Welsh to talk about his senior year, what he has heard from the Iowa coaching staff recently, and much more.

Q: Tell me about your season so far. Obviously you guys are off to a good start.

WELSH: Yeah, it's the polar opposite of last season. We went 3-7 last season and so far this year we're 7-0 and really looking to go to the post-season, so we've definitely turned things around.

Q: What has been the biggest difference this year do you think?

WELSH: It would be leadership, especially senior leadership. All of the guys have really stepped up and taken on that role this year.

Q: I would imagine you are a big part of that too right?

WELSH: Well, I'm one of the four captains, but I would say everybody in the senior class in general has taken a huge step forward in leading the team.

Over the summer, Welsh committed to Iowa over scholarship offers from Miami, West Virginia, Cincinnati, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisville, Air Force, Ball State, Bowling Green, Ohio, Kent State, Toledo, Western Kentucky, and Miami of Ohio, among others.
