Davenport, IA – The crew from BCDivide had a chance to catch up with former Hawkeye football legend Tavian Banks this week. Tavian and former teammate Tim Dwight have a new show starting in a few weeks on 1700 AM called the Tavian and Tim Show. Their show will air on Friday evenings and will give fans a backstage pass into the life of collegiate and professional athletes. Be sure to give them a follow on Twitter @TavianandTim, thanks for the time Tavian!

We asked Tavian who his biggest mentor was growing up at the powerhouse that is Bettendorf football. It should come as no surprise to Bettendorf football fans that it was none other then Merv Habenicht. (Apologize for the audio issues) 


Remember the big 1992 high school football clash with an Iowa City High team that featured co-host Tim Dwight?


Hear what Tavian told us about the Hawkeyes biggest rivals when he was playing:
