Welcome to Coach Campbell's Page


I am Coach Campbell and I am excited to begin my 7th year at New West teaching High School Physical Education 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 2018/2019 school year! Go Eagles!

This class will help students build and maintain physical fitness and athletic performance and also focus on social and life skills that help students become successful.
