The senior guard was the beating heart of Chester’s run to the District One Class AAAA final and the PIAA quarterfinals. He finished as the team’s leading scorer in terms of total points with 322, an average of 10.7 per game that trailed only Marquis Collins (12.1). He averaged 4.2 assists, 3.1 steals and 2.1 rebounds per game while leading the Clippers with 50 made 3-pointers.

Between his made baskets and assists, Campbell contributed directly to 32.5 percent of the Clippers’ offense. It made for an impressive comeback by Campbell, who saw his junior season curtailed in December when he tore his ACL in a game against Plymouth Whitemarsh.

Since the beginning of the 2014-15 season, the Clippers are 27-9 in games Campbell is healthy enough to finish, and 9-10 without him. He scored 28 points in a January win over Whitehall, 26 in a three-point survival against Chichester and 22 in the states ouster at the hands of Reading. He tallied a season-best eight assists in the other meeting with Chichester to go with 16 points.

After missing significant recruiting periods during his injury, Campbell is still weighing his options for college basketball.
