Welcome to For Black, For Gold.

My name is Alex Cappel, and this is a website where I will be sharing my opinions. Most of the articles here will cover the Iowa Hawkeyes football or men’s basketball teams. I am a high school student in Des Moines, Iowa, and I am seeking a future in sports journalism. I have been a fan of the Hawkeyes for all of my life, and I love being able to write about them and having a medium on which I can share my passion.

I try my best to make sure all of the articles here have the most accurate data in them that I can obtain, but if there is something wrong with a post, please feel free to comment on it.
