Campbell is the son of Des Campbell, who played exactly 50 games for Melbourne in the 1970s.[1] This meant that Melbourne were able to use the Father-Son Rule, to secure him in the 1992 AFL Draft. He participated in their reserves premiership winning team in 1993 but didn't play a senior game that year. The following season he made his first and only league appearance, when he played in Melbourne's 77 point win over reigning premiers Essendon at the MCG.[2]

After leaving Melbourne, Campbell returned to the Goulburn Valley Football League, where he played for three clubs. He started at Kyabram, where he was a member of a premiership team in 1996, then went back to Tongala. Since 2004, he had played at Mooroopna.[3] Initially an assistant coach, he was appointed senior coach for the 2008 season and also continued as a player.[4]

He played some reserves football at Carlton in 2001, while his younger brother Blake Campbell was with the club.
