A trio of University of Iowa linebackers, including Cedar Falls native Jack Campbell, have been named to the Butkus Award preseason watch list. 

The Butkus Award is given annually to the nation’s most outstanding linebacker.

Besides Campbell, the other two Hawkeyes linebackers named include Seth Benson and Jestin Jacobs.

Campbell was named Iowa’s defensive MVP last season and this year is a preseason First Team All-American in several publications. Campbell was a semifinalist for the Butkus Award last season.
