“I am very excited,” Campbell said. “This is a great opportunity for me and this program. We’re going to work hard to get this program back to the great tradition it was. I look forward to working with and developing our student-athletes for the next level.”
Campbell was a four year starter at Franklin, where he was a member of the 2001 MPSSAA 3A North State Championship team and earned All Baltimore County First Team honors in 2003 and 2004. He played college ball at Northwest Shoals Community College (Muscle Shoals, Ala.) and was a member of back-to-back 40+ win teams, including the 2006 North Division ACCC Champions.
