Campbell had a standout senior season for Hiram at wide receiver and earned first-team All-North Coast Athletic Conference and second-team All-Ohio accolades. This fall, he led the team in receptions (91) and yards (1,095) which were both school single-season records. He is the first wideout in Hiram history to record over 1,000 yards receiving. His 91 receptions led the NCAC and his 1,095 reception yards ranked second most. Campbell averaged just over nine receptions per game this fall which ranked in a tie for third best in all of NCAA Division III and averaged 109.5 yards per game which was 12th highest nationally.
He also led the team in touchdowns (seven) and tied the Hiram longest reception in a game record of 83 yards against Carnegie Mellon (Pa.) University on Oct. 2. In addition, Campbell set two single-game records as a senior recording 15 receptions against Denison University on Sept. 18 and most reception yards in a game (220) against Carnegie Mellon. Campbell set the single-season reception yards record on two occassions, first breaking the mark against Denison with 217 yards and then again two weeks later with his current record in the game against CMU. Campbell also became a two-time All-North Coast Athletic Conference wideout earlier season with his first first-team selection and is just the second player in program history to garner first-team accolades since joining the conference.
For his career, Campbell is the program’s all-time leader in receptions (207). In 36 career games, he recorded 2,345 yards with 15 touchdowns and averaged 11.3 yards per catch. In addition to playing wide receiver, Campbell also saw playing time at quarterback. As a QB, Campbell completed 25-of-51 passes for 382 yards and two TD. He also saw limited playing time on special teams and accounted for 2,875 all-purpose yards.
