At 34 years old, New Albany, IN, High School counselor Justin Campbell has already accomplished enough to make any person proud. The happily married father of three has earned a bachelor’s degree in business marketing and master’s degree in counseling. He played football for four years at Butler University at the running back position, well enough to receive an invite to the NFL combine with a chance to impress team scouts for a spot on a professional roster.
Earlier this year, Campbell added published author to the list of his accomplishments.
Campbell’s Christian motivational book titled, “The New, Complete You: Life Between The Lines” was released at the end of March.
“[The book] basically starts from my senior year of high school to my freshman year of college. The titles of each chapter outline what it took to do that,” Campbell said.
From the first chapter, “Start Somewhere” to the last “The Victory,” Campbell correlates his training as a football player with his path as Christian.
“There’s a lot of painful practices, but there’s joy when you strap up on Saturday. Your goal is to go to victory. In order for me to be a great Christian, I should be doing those same practices I was doing for football,” he said.
Campbell started playing football when he was in the fifth grade, considered a late kickoff by some standards.
