"He comments on my game and lets me know what I can do better, things I'm doing well," the younger Campbell, a redshirt sophomore, said. "So it's going to be fun. It's great to go home and have that strong family and friends base that I'm going to have at this game."
Campbell followed his brother around as a youth and played sports with people who were older.
"It made me tougher, and it made me better faster," he said. "I think the way he worked caused me to work the way that I do. He was a hard worker, and I was just trying to outwork him, trying to replicate what he did. I think it worked out well for me."
The 5-foot-11, 210-pound Campbell is in his second season as a starter and ranks fourth on the Wildcats in tackles. He was knocked out of last week's game against Indiana with a shoulder injury but said he'll be fine for Saturday.
Campbell was one of the area's best running backs while at Chestnut Hill Academy. As a senior, he rushed for 1,885 yards and 28 touchdowns and was named to The Inquirer's All-Southeastern Pennsylvania team.
But he felt defense would serve him better in college.
"I thought I could get on the field faster," he said. "Also trying to get to the NFL, I think I have a better shot on the defensive side of the ball. I have a defensive mentality. It's sort of a pride kind of thing."
