IOWA CITY, Iowa – University of Iowa student-athletes Jack Campbell (football) and Amiya Jones (volleyball) were named November’s Student-Athletes of the Month. The University of Iowa Student-Athlete Advisory Committee made the announcement on Wednesday.
Campbell, a senior linebacker from Cedar Falls, helped Iowa post a 3-1 record in the month of November. He recorded 36 tackles, including 20 solo tackles and 16 assists. Campbell’s month was highlighted by his performance at Minnesota, where he forced a fumble and intercepted a pass in the final five minutes of Iowa’s win. Campbell’s strong November helped him earn the 2022 Butkus Award, which is given to the nation’s top linebacker. Campbell has earned unanimous consensus All-America honors for his play throughout the 2022 season.
Campbell was also awarded the William V. Campbell Trophy, which is presented annually by the National Football Foundation. The Campbell Trophy is the premier scholar-athlete award that annually recognizes an individual as the absolute best in the nation for his combined academic success, football performance and exemplary leadership. As the 33rd recipient, Campbell will receive a $25,000 postgraduate scholarship.
