Dougherty on mission
Cedar Rapids IA Gazette (AP) 19May99 L3
By The Associated Press

AMES, IOWA -- Iowa State quarterback prospect Ben Dougherty will begin serving an LDS mission on June 16th in Las Vegas, Nevada. Dougherty had originally planned to serve a mission following graduation, but he now says that the time is rght to serve a mission, "I just thought about it and prayed about it a lot," he said.

Dougherty says that his current position onthe team has nothing to do with the decision. As a freshman last year, Dougherty couldn't play under NCAA rules. He was slated to be the Iowa State Cyclone's 3rd string quarterback this coming fall. In order to put himself in position for playing time, he had also played middle linebacker in spring practice, earning praise from his coach and teammates for how well he made the transition.
