Campbell Football Hosts Shaw

Last Time Out

Posted

Campbell hosts Shaw for its second of four consecutive home games Saturday. Kickoff is set for 6 p.m. at Barker-Lane Stadium.

Campbell raced out to a 21-10 lead, but surrendered seven unanswered Coastal Carolina touchdowns, falling to the FBS Chanticleers 58-21 at Barker-Lane Stadium. The game marked the first time a FBS program has visited a FCS foe in a true road game since Army traveled to Yale in 2014, and just the third time since 2008. The matchup was originally slated for Saturday, Sept. 15, in Conway, S.C., but was shifted up three days and to Buies Creek due to the impending threat of Hurricane Florence.

Leading The Camels

Daniel Smith owns 695 yards and five touchdowns passing, adding another 109 yards rushing and three more scores for the Camels. Smith’s 695 yards through the air are the most ever by a Camel through the first three games of a season, surpassing Elijah Burress’ 2016 mark (558).

Rocky Reid has posted a team-high 199 rushing yards with two touchdowns, while Caleb Snead has collected 227 yards receiving with three TDs. Aaron Blockmon has hailed in a team-high 11 catches for 154 yards.

Jack Ryan leads the defense with 24 total stops, while Dorian Jones and Ray Miller own 18 apiece. Deontae Henderson adds two interceptions, while Terence Harper chips in three tackles for loss.

Snead Again Named Big South Freshman Of The Week

For the second time in as many weeks, Campbell’s Caleb Snead has been named the Big South’s Freshman of the Week. Snead posted 72 yards and a touchdown on four catches against FBS member Coastal Carolina, leading the Camels in receiving yards for the second consecutive game.

The redshirt freshman from Lynchburg, Va., hauled in a TD catch for the third consecutive game, coming on the Camels’ opening drive, an 18-yard pass from Daniel Smith. Through three games, Snead owns 227 yards and three TDs on nine grabs.

Campbell football players have taken Big South weekly honors five times through three games.

Scouting Shaw

The Division II Bears are 1-1 on the season, seeing their week three matchup and home opener Chowan postponed due to Hurricane Florence. Shaw opened the 2018 season with a 38-10 loss at future Big South member Hampton, and bounced back with a 27-9 win at Mars Hill.

Packing Barker-Lane

A greater-than capacity crowd of 5,624 turned out for the season opener and accounted for Campbell’s 14th sellout since Barker-Lane Stadium was expanded to 5,500 seats in 2013. Campbell has averaged a sellout in each of the past two seasons, joining only Montana State and Mercer as one of three programs in FCS to accomplish the feat. Barker-Lane Stadium has set an overall attendance record in two straight, and five of the last six seasons.
