Campbell comes to CU after spending the last two years as a graduate assistant at Middle Tennessee
Cumberland University Director of Athletics Ron Pavan announced the hiring of Solomon Campbell as the department’s newest full-time athletic trainer, effective immediately.
Campbell joins a staff that includes Head Athletic Trainer James Meadows and Assistant Trainer LaKeisha Fair as well as four graduate assistants for 17 sports at CU. Katie Arnold and Megan Bynum work exclusively on the academic side of the Athletic Training Education Program at Cumberland.
Campbell comes to CU after spending the last two years as a graduate assistant at Middle Tennessee, working primarily with the Blue Raider football team. He collaborated with the head athletic trainer and assistant athletic trainer to oversee the treatment and rehabilitation of all injuries and surgeries, conducted evaluations on-and-off the field during games and practices, and created rehabilitation protocols for long and short-term injuries and surgeries.
He spent one year at the University of Buffalo, assisting with football in the fall and men’s and women’s track and field in the winter and spring, making decisions regarding treatment, evaluation and preventative measures for student-athletes.
Campbell also worked one summer as an intern with the Buffalo Bills, assisting with treatment, taping, bracing and field set-up as well as working and coordinating with the strength and conditioning department during training camp.
He graduated from Canisius College in Buffalo, N.Y., working with men’s basketball and softball one year and men’s soccer and women’s lacrosse in his second year with the Golden Griffins. He assisted with stretching, taping, bracing and rehabilitation and made decisions regarding treatment for student-athletes.
Campbell received his bachelor’s in Athletic Training with a minor in Health and Human Performance from Canisius in May 2013 and earned his master’s in Exercise Science from Middle Tennessee in May 2015.
