Several new faces will be counted on as the Iowa State football team looks to continue a run of success this fall.
At quarterback, redshirt sophomore Hunter Dekkers takes the reigns of the offense from four-year starter Brock Purdy who closed his Cyclone career with more than 12 thousand yards of passing and 81 touchdowns.
Dekkers says he learned a lot from Purdy.
The Cyclones have played in five straight bowl games and Dekkers expects that streak to continue.
The former West Sioux Falcon says he is looking forward to the challenge.
ISU coach Matt Campbell says there are similarities between Purdy and Dekkers in how they are viewed by their teammates.
Campbell says the limited action Dekkers has seen is a plus.
Campbell says fall camp will be about building an identity on offense.
Junior running back Jirehl Brock says Purdy and Dekkers have different leadership styles.
The Cyclones open at home on September third against Southeast Missouri.
