My Ball State Story

Jack Haworth - Football at Ball State University

Jack Haworth III

Strategic Partnership Manager, NMLS 2054409

This scholarship program was envisioned by BSU almunus, and former football player, Jack Haworth III. His goal is to give back to the institution which played an integral role in shaping who he is today.

Jack’s History at Ball State:

The journey started back in Newburgh, IN when I moved there from El Paso, TX as my mother had decided that the only way I was going to college would be on a football scholarship.  Since I started playing football in 3rd grade, I had always been on a championship team and after winning the City Championship in El Paso, TX as an 8th grader, my mother decided to move us back to Newburgh in order in increase by chances to receive a football scholarship.

The high school in El Paso that I would be going to had not won a game in over 5 years while the school in Newburgh had won a state championship 3 years earlier when we had lived there the first time before my moms 2nd divorce. Castle High School in Newburgh, IN in 1982 had a receiver by the name of Deion Chester that went on to BSU on a full scholarship.

He had an incredible career and then started his coaching career at BSU.  In 1990 when I was graduating from Castle as a 2 time all state LB, Deion was responsible for recruiting southern Indiana and primarily his old high school.  I had received a partial scholarship at Stanford, had some preferred walk on opportunities at some Big Ten and SEC schools as well as an offer to go to West Point and play.  However, I needed a full scholarship and didn’t want any debt from student loans.  BSU ended up giving me a full scholarship the year after they won the conference and went to play in a bowl game in California.  

Athletics were just one of the criteria for me to make a decision upon BSU.  The other criteria were many.  Being close to Indianapolis so that my mother could watch me play, the academics – having many different business major options to choose from, the size of the campus, the makeup of the student body, the whole college experience.

Once I enrolled, I knew that I wanted to go into business.  Marketing was the major of choice.  I was admitted with Honors and could have gone into the honors college instead of the traditional student role, however, with the commitment that football presented, I felt it best to go the path of the traditional student role.  

I quickly realized that I wanted to double major in marketing and finance after my first finance class.  I ended up with a major in marketing as well as two options in finance.  One option being corporate finance and the other option being financial institutions. 

I quickly realized that I wanted to double major in marketing and finance after my first finance class.  I ended up with a major in marketing as well as two options in finance.  One option being corporate finance and the other option being financial institutions. 

I was young for my class and I was able to put on 20 pounds my first year until I had an injury where I tore ligaments and incurred bone chips in my left wrist after the last football practice of my 1st year.  This injury resulted in a cast for 12 weeks and a lengthy rehab which resulted in the loss of the weight that I had gained.  I was awarded the scout team player of the year for my first year and was redshirted allowing for an additional year of eligibility.

The second year at BSU was interesting as my high school sweetheart enrolled and 6 months into the school year we broke up and I played on all the special teams for the football season earning my first varsity letter.  The year also saw me getting into the business school and exploring more robust classes that pertained to my interests.  I was still in the dorms and met some of my life long best friends.

The third year at BSU saw me getting my 2nd varsity letter as well as real playing time on the field as a Defensive End.  This was an interesting year as the team was preseason projected to win the MAC Conference. This was a year of life lessons.  The biggest was one around diversity.  This team had professional talent yet underachieved due to the dysfunction of the team due to lack of appreciation of diversity.

The 4th year at BSU saw me getting my 3rd varsity letter and the starting role at DE.  We won the conference championship as well as played in the Las Vegas Bowl.  This was special for me as I was born in Vegas and most of my family hadn’t seen me play in college.  I had the game of my career in the biggest game we had played while the majority of my family was there to watch in person.  Another life lesson occurred that year which I would not have known until much later in lift.  There is no “I” in team.  We added a new player to our team that led the nation in Div. 1 football in total tackles.  He had been a great player but not a great teammate.  However, late in the season our defense turned around due to his ability to lead us as a collective group versus being a one man wrecking crew.

The 5th year was an exciting one as I moved positions to DT and was player of the week against the defending national champions, west virginia’s mountaineers.  We had a great year and tried to repeat as conference champs but fell short.  The experience at BSU was incredible going to play teams like Clemson, Navy, Syracuse, Kansas, TCU, etc. allowed for a great experience to see new places and motivation to perform in a bigger stadium. I was able to get an internship with a life insurance company in my second semester and put my professional sales class skills to good work.  I was taught life lessons around hard work, team work, accountability, professionalism, structure, processes, value of relationships and time management.

After college, I decided to hire athletes from the business school to Wells Fargo and allow them to blossom in a hard working fast paced environment.  I valued the classes and content that was taught as well as the life lessons that the athletes were taught while at BSU.

After moving into a national role at Wells Fargo, I was able to rekindle my relationship at BSU and started with an introduction to the team around a career services night.  This jump started my involvement which allowed me to become president of the BSU Football Players association as well as sit on the alumni council.  I am also involved in the Miller College of Business where I serve on the executive leadership council and serve on the marketing committee for the alumni council.  I believe in giving back and BSU has given me the ability to make an incredible life for myself.
