Bremen’s Campbell signs with Trine

Zach Campbell has signed a letter of intent to attend Trine University located in Angola, Indiana where he will study engineering and play football for the Thunder.  As a senior captain on the football team, Zach earned All Northern Indiana Conference honors while starring at middle linebacker for the Lions and played on 3 sectional championship teams.  The 2-year starter was also named Academic All-State by the Indiana Football Coaches Association.  Zach captained the wrestling team for Bremen where he earned  4 varsity letters.  The 2-time regional qualifier was twice selected Academic All-State by the Indiana Wrestling Coaches Association.  Academically, Zach is ranked 13th in his class with a GPA of 3.705.  Congratulations Zach!

Football Coach Bob Holmes Campbell stated, “Zach has been an outstanding representative of the Lions football team, as well as Bremen High School for his entire high school career. Zach has developed into a tenacious linebacker and served as captain his senior season.  Zach’s tremendous characteristics will make him a welcome addition to the Trine University Thunder football program where I am sure he will be successful at any endeavor he attempts on or off the field.”

Wrestling Coach Shawn Campbell stated, “Zach Campbell is an extremely hard worker and has always been very coachable, doing everything his coaches asked of him.  He has had a keen vision of what he wanted to accomplish and has had a plan during his high school career, to make that plan come to fruition.  He has been a dedicated leader and is the perfect example of a “program kid”.  He paid his dues early in his career and reaped the benefits later.  He has been a gracious leader and a humble individual that has had tremendous athletic and academic success.  I feel that Zach has accomplished many things in his athletic and academic career because of his ability to self-motivate, his self-discipline and his mental toughness.  He has been a great teammate, mentor and friend to many on his football and wrestling teams and those characteristics resulted in his selection as a captain in both sports.  He is going to be successful because of the many lessons he has learned during his time at Bremen High School and I have no doubt that he will be even more successful at Trine University.  As a coach you love to have athletes like Zach and it is difficult to see them go, but you are always thankful for the blessing of the time that you were able to spend with them.  It has been an exceptional time being able to coach my son and his mother and I are very proud of him!”
