Affectionally known as “The Gov,” Campo coached wrestling and football at Brentwood High School from 1966 to 1986.

His impressive wrestling record of 452-38 was more than enough to get Campo inducted into the New York State Wrestling Coaches Hall of Fame in 1987.

Campo won countless league and county titles in both sports at the height of Brentwood’s athletic success. He was voted Suffolk County Football Coach of the Year in 1970, 1971 and 1972 and the Long Island Football Coach of the Year in 1970.

The Ithaca College alum coached 89 league champions, 37 county title-holders and nine New York State titles winners. His wrestling teams won 20 league championships, and 15 county championships. His football teams won two Rutgers Trophies as the best in Suffolk.
