Campbell says that so far he is enjoying his position as Athletic Director at Adair County High School.

"As a math teacher, let me say that classroom performance is number one. When I go in to check grades every Monday morning and see that many of our students are making A's in their classes, then see them perform well on the court, that's a great reward for me," said Campbell.

Campbell says that he's excited to see the Adair County girls ranked third in the region and credits the senior leadership of Haley Wheat and Chanley Ottersen. "They have exceeded the standards," he said. Campbell understands Marion County is a formidable opponent.

"We're ranked second behind Marion County in the 20th district and we've been ranked third in the region. Our scoring has been very balanced and our defense has been consistent. "We just have to go into every game knowing we can win," said Campbell.

Campbell says he thinks the boy's basketball season is going well and credits seniors Jordan Alfero, Clay Turner, Kyle Young, and Justin Reeder for their outstanding team leadership. Campbell anticipates Adair County boys to make a strong run at the district crown.

Campbell says his personal goal is to build on a program that everyone in the school and community can be proud of.

"This year is a building and learning process for me," said Campbell. "When people hear the words Adair County, as it relates to our kids and program, I want positive thoughts to come to mind."

Campbell also credits his coaching staff and says he appreciates the support from fans and administration. He says he is looking forward to district tournament action beginning in February. - Alan W. Reed

Brent Campbell is in his second semester as athletic director at Adair County High School. Helping the program succeed is important, winning on the courts, fields, tracks and arenas, but he says the priority will always be on success in the classroom, first. Filling the bleachers behind him is important, too, not only for the financial viability of the program, but also to let the young student athletes know that what they're doing is worthwhile.
