Cam Lard Enters Wellness Center

AMES, Iowa – Iowa State men’s basketball player  Cameron Lard is currently enrolled at a wellness center dedicated to  helping individuals build a balanced and structured lifestyle.

Coach Steve Prohm and the Iowa State Athletics  Department talked to Lard and his mother this spring about a wellness  program and they were receptive to participating in a program that helps  individuals make improvements in all aspects of their life.

“Cam needs to change some personal habits and he  knows that,” Prohm said. “Our priority is, and should be, to help our  kids reach their potentials for the long term.”

Lard will not be on campus this summer, but  rather is focused on addressing a personal improvement matter. He is  looking forward to returning to the university and the Cyclone  basketball team upon successfully completing the wellness program. Lard  is focused on remaining positive and optimistic about his future.

“With the help of everyone here, I can assure you  that I’m making some positive changes and (developing) better habits,”  Lard texted Prohm this week.

The 6-9 sophomore, who averaged 12.6 points and  finished second in the Big 12 with a 60.1% field goal rate, has already  begun his wellness program.

Prohm has admiration for Lard.

“Cam has been open to improving as a person and  desiring to make better decisions,” Prohm said. “I’m so proud of him for  taking ownership on becoming the best Cam he can be. There is a very  bright future for him if he matures as a young man.” 

Lard’s support system is anchored by his mother, Belinda. 

“Words can’t express my appreciation for what  Iowa State and Coach Prohm are doing for my son,” his mother, Belinda,  said. “They care about Cam as a young man and that means the world to  me.”

Prohm said his team is anxious to welcome him back upon his return.

“And, in knowing Cyclone fans, I can only imagine  the reception he’ll receive when he hits the Hilton court for the first  time,” Prohm said.

Lard and his family sincerely appreciate the  support they are receiving. But neither they, nor the athletics  department staff or university will be making any additional public  statements on the issue at this time.
