De’Shawn Jones Candid Camel

All-Pioneer Football League tailback De’Shawn Jones wants to break his own single-season rushing record, powering the Fighting Camels offense for his senior season.

Jones, Campbell’s all-time leading rusher, enters the 2016 campaign confident after ranking 18th in the FCS last season for rushing yards per game. The Fighting Camels workhorse back has picked up 1,991 yards on the ground over his career, hoping to help guide the Campbell Camels to their first winning season since 2011.

Featuring an offensive line with two returning All-PFL performers, Jones trusts his protection and feels the Fighting Camels could be even more explosive this season. Here’s De’Shawn Jones in his own words for our exclusive Candid Camel interview.

The Fighting Camels open the regular season at Barker-Lane Stadium on Thursday night, September 1 against Bluefield College. Follow @GoCamelsFB on Twitter and Instagram for the latest updates before this week’s opener.

Win Four Years In The Making

Campbell Women’s Lacrosse secured its first win over long-time rival Coastal Carolina Wednesday night, as Erica Hitch scored the game-winning goal for the Fighting Camels in what amounted to a competitive 8-7 game in Conway, South Carolina.

The celebration ensued (above) on the teal colored turf as the Fighting Camels are now 3-1 in Big South Conference play – moving ever closer to hosting their first-ever tournament game.

Loren Day, who entered as the nation’s leading scorer, added two goals for Campbell and the game-tying assist, feeding Erica Hitch in the final nine minutes – who later scored the game winner.

For the first time in program history, Campbell defeated their rivals at Coastal Carolina, bouncing back from last year’s overtime loss in the opening round of the Big South Tournament.

The Fighting Camels return to action this Saturday here at Barker-Lane Stadium as they host the Liberty Lady Flames starting at 12 p.m. Fans can watch the game live on the Big South Network and follow @GoCamelsWLAX on Twitter for updates.
