Austin Peay State University GovernorsClarksville, TN – As he ran back down the floor after hitting the jumper against Central Missouri, Anthony Campbell looked into the stands and announced simply, “I’m back.”

The forward from Illinois has endured much in his time as an Austin Peay athlete. A heart-wrenching OVC Championship loss as a freshman. A wrecked knee his junior year. And then, another knee injury just 10 games into what would be his redshirt junior season.

Long road back, Campbell cleared to resume basketball activities

 

APSU Sports: Men’s Basketball

Austin Peay State University GovernorsClarksville, TN – Anthony Campbell smiled. No, he beamed.

When it was mentioned how important Thursday night was, he couldn’t help but smile, partially out of relief. It had been eight months since Campbell tore both the anterior cruciate and medial collateral ligaments in his left knee during a December 8th practice, with surgery last December 28th. Thursday night was the so-called day of reckoning-it was the culmination of eight months of arduous-and sometimes painful-rehabilitation.

Thursday night was when Campbell was given “medical clearance to resume basketball activities” by team physician, Dr. Cooper Beazley, who performed the surgery back on December 28th. Back in May, Campbell was informed he had received a medical redshirt for the 2010-11 season and will be a junior athletically this season.
