Campbell Outlines Formula for Success
24 Mar 2022
Since Matt Campbell became the head coach of the Iowa State University football team prior to the 2016 season, remarkable things have happened on the field.
Campbell has racked up the best winning percentage — 55.3 percent — in school history. He has coached the Cyclones to five straight bowl games: the Cheez-It, Fiesta, Alamo, Liberty and Camping World bowls.
But Campbell told a Fort Dodge audience Thursday night that the most important part of his job really has nothing to do with scoring touchdowns.
“My greatest responsibility is to develop our coaches, the leaders of our football program, our young men to become the best versions of themselves,” he said during the annual dinner of the Greater Fort Dodge Growth Alliance.
The mission, he said is to “transform young people and empower them for the rest of their lives.”
Campbell was the keynote speaker at the dinner held at Fort Frenzy, 3232 First Ave. S.
