Welcome to Coach Campbell's Page


I am Coach Campbell and I am excited to begin my 6th year at New West teaching High School Physical Education, coaching the High School Boys Basketball team and serving as both Physical Education Department Chair and Athletic Director. I was born and raised in Chicago, IL. I received a Bachelor’s degree from Eastern Illinois University in Kinesiology with a minor in Health Studies while also playing four years of college baseball for the Panthers. I also received a Master’s degree in Coaching and Athletic Administration from Concordia University Irvine. I enjoy being active and have a passion for coaching and sports. I am excited about the continued growth and accomplishments of our Athletic Program and am looking forward to a successful 2017/2018 school year! Go Eagles!


Course Description

    Physical Education

    Physical Education will focus on improving all 5 components of physical fitness; muscular strength, muscular endurance, cardiovascular endurance, flexibility and body composition through a variety of activities. Athletic/Motor skill development will be incorporated into class as well as character and social development. Fitness and athletic skills will compliment each other and students will be pushed to work hard and improve everyday in class. Character will be stressed and students will be encouraged to treat others with respect and develop their social skills by working in teams and groups on a daily basis. Lastly, Physical Education will help enhance the mind/body connection. Exercise has been proven to grow brain cells and prime the adolescent brain for learning and function. "A fit body equals a fit mind!"
