Blast From The Past
Speer Guides Iowa Western to National Title
Tristan Speer

Speer helped Iowa Western to 61 points and an NJCAA National Championship as the Reivers’ offensive coordinator and offensive line coach.

That point total marks the second-highest scoring effort ever in a national championship game as they defeated East Mississippi Community College handily 61-14.

The Reivers finished the season with a 12-1 record with their lone loss coming to Hutchinson Community College in their regular season finale.

Iowa Western defeated Kilgore in the semifinals by a lopsided score of 41-7.

This past offseason, he was hired to be the offensive coordinator at the University of Arkansas at Monticello in January. Two months later, Iowa Western’s then-offensive coordinator Tony Koehling was hired away for a position at Hutchinson Community College. With the position open, Speer took the job with the Reivers, just two months after he was hired by the Weevils.

This season, Iowa Western averaged 32.7 points per game, but they had just three games where they scored more than 30 points before the postseason.

Before his time at Iowa Western, Speer was an assistant coach and running backs coach at Delta State University.

Speer also played quarterback at Highland Community College for two years. He then became a student assistant at Missouri Western State. Speer won a playoff game during a 9-2 season in 2012 for Doniphan West football in high school before transferring to Troy and helping lead the Trojans to 17 wins in 2013 and 2014 playoff seasons.
