Tight end Julian Hill (#85)

BUIES CREEK. – Three weeks before opening the 2022 season at Barker-Lane Stadium, Campbell will hold the first of three open scrimmages on Thursday, August 11, at 6:00 p.m.

The Camels will also welcome fans for open scrimmages on August 18 and August 25, also set for 6:00 p.m. starts at Barker-Lane Stadium. CU’s final scrimmage will be held in conjunction with Traditions 101, a new event to learn the traditions of a Fighting Camel football game day (more details to come).

There is no cost to attend all three dates.

Seating will be limited to the East Side of Barker-Lane Stadium in Sections 110, 111, 112, 113 and 114.

The Camels opened preseason camp on August 2.

Led by head coach Mike Minter in his 10th season in Buies Creek, Campbell returns a combined 14 starters on the offense and defense in 2022, and 61 letterwinners while welcoming a bevy of newcomers that make up the FCS’ top-ranked recruiting class.

Campbell defensive end Brevin Allen was named the 2022 Big South Preseason Defensive Player of the Year, headlining 10 CU selections on the league’s preseason team, while the Camels were picked second in the coaches’ poll, announced last week at the 2022 Big South Conference Football Media Day presented by BuyB1.com.

The Camels’ 10 selections leads the conference, while CU’s second place prediction is the highest in program history.

Season and single game tickets remain on sale at GoCamels.com/Tickets and via phone at 1-877-GO-HUMPS. The 2022 season opener against The Citadel is set for Thursday, September 1 at 6:00 p.m. at Barker-Lane Stadium.
