By  | 

AMES, Iowa (KCRG-TV9) - Joel Lanning ran the Iowa State offense for two seasons with 14 starts. This year, he'll still be the signal caller, only it'll be on the defensive side of the ball as the starting middle linebacker.

"When you're a quarterback, you read things and you go from one thing to another," said Lanning. "As a linebacker, you have just one responsibility, depending on the formation and stuff like that."
