RB/DB Campbell (’11) Signs

Juliet Brooks ('13), News Features Editor

Not everyone can cite “90% football scholarship to Lehigh” as a life accomplishment, but Isaiah Campbell (’11) is one of the favored few.

A running back and a defensive lineman for the East Cougars, Campbell has been playing football for ten years. He started in the Cherry Hill Midget Leagues and then went on to play at Voorhees before starting at East.

Campbell was recruited by Coach Dave Cecchini. Campbell said, “One day the coach came to the school and we exchanged information. He saw the Washington township game and that sparked an interest in him and we kept in touch.”

Campbell plans to study premed at the college of arts and sciences at Lehigh. “First I wanted to go to Temple, but I injured my knee [in the game against Eastern].”

However, Campbell is excited to be on his own next year. “Lehigh is a school of academic and athletic excellence.”
