Athlete of the Week – Justin Campbell – Wrestling

Justin Campbell

How long have you been wrestling for?

“I have been wrestling since seventh grade.” 

What has been your biggest accomplishment from this season so far?

“Last weekend we had the Keith Young, and it is one of the toughest tournaments in the season, and I got third place in a bracket with six ranked people, and I upset the No. 3 kid in the state and then the No. 1 kid in the 1A division.”

What are your personal goals?

“I want to be a state place winner. Last year I qualified.” 

Favorite memory from this or previous season?

“I would say when we wrestled Linn-Mar last year and they were a pretty hard team, but we blew them out of the water. The biggest competition for me individually this year are some tough kids in our district. We are always against [Waterloo]  East and West, but winning our district is a big goal.” 

Are you planning on wrestling after this year?

“Right now I have some interest from smaller Division III schools, but I don’t think I will go.”
