The beginning of the season held many expectations for the Cyclones' Men's Golf team, and rightfully so. Same group of guys, same courses as last year; it was shaping up to be a big step forward for a program that had already seen a lot of development over the last few years.

Iowa State has been blessed with consistency at the running back position for the past three seasons. Ever since David Montgomery arrived in 2016, the running back position has been one of the Cyclones' biggest strengths. Despite three different coaches at the position group in four years, Montgomery kept the starting mantle and grew into one of the best players in Iowa State's football history.
