His story of playing through excruciating pain exemplifies the spirit of sportsmanship at its finest.

Campbell Praises Frank Ragnow, Reveals one of his Biggest Fears

Battling multiple injuries throughout the season, including lingering toe, knee, and back issues, Ragnow’s steadfast commitment to his team and fear of letting his teammates down underscores his exceptional character.

“I called Frank on the way out (from surgery) and he probably doesn’t even remember it because of what he was on, but I know this, he did say, ‘I’ll be back for the next game. I’ll be back by practice on Wednesday,’” Campbell recalled. “And sure enough, he was. And every day he kept telling me, ‘I’ll be ready next week, I’ll be ready next week.’ And so that’s how Frank is. Frank’s going to will himself. His mind controls his body, which we talk about all the time and the good ones can do that.”

“He’s a tough dude and he’s a mind over matter (guy), but ultimately, what it’s about for him, I just go back to this, you can call it what you want, he is terrified of letting his teammates down,” Campbell said. “That means more to him than anything. That’s just the way he is, and that’s why guys respect the hell out of him.”
