Quote from Jack Mueller, BBE Wrestling Coach, about Isaac Kampsen: “In all my years of teaching and coaching, I have never encountered a kid who has changed more than Isaac Kampsen. Isaac was an eighth grader my first year at BBE. At that point, Isaac struggled academically and socially. He lacked confidence which led to struggles in his day to day life. I am not sure exactly when that all changed, but I do know it changed. Isaac has transformed into an exceptional young man. Isaac was one of those wrestlers who joined the sport too late to find a ton of success, but he is one of the best examples I can think of as to how one can contribute to a team without being the “stud”. Isaac was competitive, but handled defeat as well as anyone. He had his share of losses, but he picked up 9 wins for our team this year that we probably wouldn’t have got without him. Isaac has the work ethic and grit it takes to be successful in life. Isaac is set up for a bright future, and I have no doubt he will make the most of it.”
