Former Nite Hawk inducted into Hall of Fame
Steve “Bucky” Denton is proud of his playing days with the Newton Nite Hawks, a semi-professional football team here in Newton during the mid to late 1970s.
“On a Saturday night in central Iowa, people could come to Patterson Park and see of the best football played. Holland-Patterson Park was rocking back then,” Denton told the Daily News in a telephone interview Tuesday evening. “We had guys playing on the team that played at Iowa State, Iowa and a lot of the small colleges in the area. The Newton community supported us so well and people came from all around to pack the stadium.”
Denton is the fifth former Newton Nite Hawk player inducted into the American Football Association Semi-Pro Football Hall of Fame. He was a member of the 2013 class enshrined June 28 in Canton, Ohio.
