Iowa Footballers’ Notebook: Spencer Petras Doesn’t Focus on Competition

Iowa City, Iowa – Spencer Petras downplayed the competition with friend and Iowa teammate Alex Padilla in December. Both started last season’s matches.

Petras has once again shied away from classifying what’s going on between him, Padilla and new student Joey LaPass as a contest this spring. He was recently asked how he treats others in his range of positions.
