Football: Campbell Hall drops varsity football for one season

April 14, 2012 |  8:39 am

North Hollywood Campbell Hall made the decision on Friday to not have a varsity football team for the 2012 season because of dwindling numbers. The school will have junior varsity football.

First-year Coach Scott Napier, hired from L.A. Windward, said he understands the decision but intends to put together a competitive schedule for the remaining players to prepare for a return to varsity football in 2013.

Several players have already transferred to other schools as word leaked out about whether Campbell Hall would have a varsity team this season.

Napier said he is putting together a top staff of assistant coaches that includes former UCLA defensive player Reggie Carter.

"It's a new beginning," Napier said.
