Centennial’s Campbell earns first-team honors
Before the season started there was a possibility a knee injury might cost Centennial defensive back Da’Quan Campbell playing time.
“We didn’t even know if he was going to play,” Centennial coach Kyle Geller said.
Campbell didn’t miss a game for the Spartans and had a stellar senior season.
Last week, Campbell earned first-team honors on the Texas Associated Press Sports Editors Class 5A All-State football team.
“I am really happy for him,” Geller said. “He’s a top-notch competitor and brought energy and enthusiasm to our team. I’ll always be thankful to him for being just a great team player.”
Campbell’s best game came in a 42-0 win at Waco University. Campbell collected a school-record three interceptions and returned the final one 47 yards for a touchdown.
The senior nabbed a single-season school-record eight interceptions. He finished with 67 tackles, two tackles for loss, recovered three fumbles, forced three fumbles and broke up two passes.
The Spartans had two honorable mention players in senior guard Trevor Suggs and senior defensive end Mazin Richards.
Burleson had one honorable mention player in senior linebacker Carson Hallack.
