CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa (KCRG) - Iowa senior linebacker Jack Campbell became the first Hawkeye to win the William V. Campbell Trophy on Tuesday night.

Recognized as the “Academic Heisman,” the Campbell trophy recognizes student-athletes for academics, football performance and leadership.

In a release from Iowa Athletics, head coach Kirk Ferentz said it’s well-deserved.

“Jack is the ultimate teammate and a highly respected leader in our program,” Ferentz said. “Jack is an outstanding representative of our football program, the University of Iowa, his family, and the Cedar Falls community.”
