Athletic Program Mission Statement
The focus of the Campbell Athletic program is to help our athletes grow into productive members of society. Our goal is to use our platforms to prepare them for life after they leave us. So they can be great fathers, mothers, wives, husbands, and leaders in our communities.
Below is the Coaching Philosophy that Coach Compton brings to Campbell Athletics:
As athletic director, I strongly believe that many of life’s important lessons and habits can be learned through participation in extracurricular activities. I personally believe that students who participate in multiple sports are the most successful students. Playing football my entire life and being in sports and watching other coaches has helped me grow as a coach and learn to be a positive role model figure for all athletes within the athletic program and entire school community. Throughout playing and watching coaches, I have learned what to do and what not to do to be a part of a successful program. I want to bring my knowledge and skills of coaching to a place like Campbell ISD where I can help students develop and continue to succeed through high school and college. Sports have also taught me how important academics are. I believe that academics come before athletics. I want to ensure that every single student in my athletic program is taking care of themselves in the classroom. I expect all student athletes within this program to develop positive leadership skills and work ethic throughout their high school career. I expect this program to continue to stay on the right track of being successful. I want to bring this program back to what it was before and in order to do that I need to make sure that all my coaches on staff take initiative in their programs and I will be there to help guide them. My job as an athletic director will be to make sure that all coaches and athletes within this athletic program will have everything they need to be successful.
Athletics are such a vital part of the educational process today. Without athletics, young people would be deprived of learning so many things that can help them become successful adults. Equipping young people with the tools to be successful is the job of those of us who have chosen to help them through the educational process.
Our athletic program will be first class in everything we do. We will represent ourselves with class and dignity that our entire community will be proud of. In most cases, an athletic program is the most visible aspect of any school system. The most important part of the educational institution is obviously academics. However, whether people like it or not, the opinion of many is based on how the athletic program conducts and carries itself. Therefore, the student-athletes in our program will have no choice but to carry themselves like classy young men and women. Our student-athletes will be constantly reminded that the way they carry themselves is not just a reflection upon them. They are representing their family, teammates, coaches, classmates, and the community. Our student-athletes will understand this fact. Each one of our student-athletes will work as hard as they can to be the best person, student, and athlete they can be. Anything other than their best effort can and will not be tolerated. In order to be the best athletic program we can be, which will ultimately help each individual student-athlete be the best person they can be, we must work together. Teamwork and team success will be stressed over any individual success. Each young person in our athletic program will understand the importance of sacrificing any individual success for the success of the team. Teamwork and unselfishness will be stressed throughout our entire program. Individuals involved in our athletic program will have high expectations for themselves. We will expect to do well, carry ourselves with class, and win both on and off the playing field. Ultimately, every person involved in our athletic program will become a better person because they have the opportunity to compete and be a part of a team.
