More news about: Guilford

GREENSBORO, N.C. – Guilford College freshman Tyler Campbell is among 26 students from across the county selected as a finalist for the National Football Foundation's (NFF) 2012 National Scholar-Athlete Awards. A student representing each of the country's five regions will receive the honor at the annual NFF Chapter Awards Luncheon December 4 in New York, N.Y. Winners will be announced the week of Oct. 8.

Campbell and the other 25 finalists were selected from a pool of 3,300 individuals recognized by the organization's 120 local chapters.  He is one of three South Region finalists nominated for academic achievement, athletic accolades and community involvement. Campbell was nominated by the NFF's Corrigan/Faircloth (N.C.) Chapter and is one of seven finalists now competing for an NCAA Division III institution.

Campbell lettered three years under coach Joe Woodruff at Northwest Guilford High School. The 6-0, 260-pound center was a First Team All-Piedmont Triad 4A Conference selection and served as team captain. In 2010, he was an honorable mention all-conference pick and won the Vikings' Coaches Award. A 2011 honorable mention All-Area selection, Campbell helped his team to conference championships in 2010 and 2011.

Campbell and his Guilford teammates open the 2012 season Saturday (9/1) night in the 16th annual Gate City Soup Bowl against crosstown-rival Greensboro College. Kickoff at Guilford's Appenzeller Field at Armfield Athletic Center is 7:00 p.m.
