Lemont veteran coach Bret Kooi said the linebackers are the strength of the defense, led by the sideline-to-sideline play of Campos.
“Our linebackers are solid,” Kooi said. “If they stay healthy, I think they can be the best four that I’ve had since I’ve been here. We have some really good kids. Cade’s an unbelievable player. He’s a phenomenal downhill player. He received a lot of interest from [colleges] this summer. He’s so quick to the ball, just the way he squeezes on the ball.”
Campos credits his work with speed training for lowering his 40 time. Before speed training, Campos said his fastest 40 time registered 4.72.
“I’ve always been fast, but speed training really helped me a lot over the last year,” he said.
