The Hawks are the only professional team in any of the US big 4 sports (NBA, NFL, MLB, NHL) to permanently call the state of Iowa home. The Tri-Cities Blackhawks, now the Atlanta Hawks did play in Davenport but most of their home games were in Molina, Il.
Both the Tri-Cities team and the Hawks were named after the Chief Blackhawk, who lead a long standing war against the US Government in the area in the 19th century.
When the Waterloo Hawks disbanded and the Tri-Cities team moved to Milwaukee, they took the Hawks moniker which they keep to this day.
