Cameron Campbell

Cameron Campbell (Coach Cam) is a servant, sports enthusiast, and social entrepreneur who has spoken more than a thousand times for various sports and philanthropic organizations including the National Football League (NFL), National Basketball League (NBA) and Major League Baseball (MLB). He is a former NCAA Division One (D-1) football athlete and graduate of the University of Houston, who transformed his passion for sports into a career serving students as an Athletic Director and Head Coach in KIPP Public Schools.

For more than 12 years, Coach Cam has been leading nonprofit work and leaving his mark in the youth and family sports space. He works together with Houston ISD (HISD) Athletics facilitating their "Return to Play" protocol. When athletes from across the district are ejected from athletic competitions it is required that they spend time with Coach Cam in a debrief before they are able to return to play. Additionally, he is a USA Football Master Trainer, training and leading conversations around sportsmanship, leadership, athletics and his vision for what great coaches look like all around the Houston area and all across the country. He's been an integral part of Texans youth football events such as Play Safe, Coaches Academy, and Youth Football Camp.

But not only is he passionate about sports. One of Coach Cam's biggest accomplishment in his personal life has been the work he has done in the philanthropic community believing that giving is a matter of the heart. And it starts with the will to do more and to serve others. Not only has he been committed to working in the nonprofit sector, but in 2017 he also launched Texas Athletics Construction, a small business with the direct intent of it being a vehicle for his philanthropic endeavors. The mission and purpose of Texas Athletics Construction is to build athletic surfaces to fund his community work. He built the softball field at Sharpstown High School and the track at Westbury High School. He also makes it a priority to take a large amount of the revenue that he earns in his business and reallocate that back into these underserved pockets of Houston that he cares so much about.
