Hawkeye, the Navy Seal Dog, Could Walk With Iowa Hawkeyes, the Football Team

hawkeye loyal dog

Hawkeye, the loyal pup of late Navy SEAL Jon T. Tumilson that had us reaching for the Kleenex when photos of him slumped under his master’s casket spread around the web, has caught the attention of (who else?) University of Iowa football team the Hawkeyes. Former player Jon Lazar heard about the dog and has submitted a request that Hawkeye get to walk the team out onto the field at a game this season.

Said Lazar:

“It just tears you apart to see that . But I thought how great it would be for that dog to lead the Hawkeyes down to the field and to have the announcer tell the story of this dog.”

The university’s events office is currently evaluating the request. The Hawkeyes have their season opener on September 3.
