LHP Campbell Ellis Earns Scholarship to VCU
Submitted By Dan Thompson on Saturday, October 6, 2018
Terriers LHP Campbell Ellis will be taking his pitching talents to Virginia Commonwealth University in the fall of 2020. Campbell visited the beautiful Richmond Virginia campus this past weekend, knew it was the right fit and committed to the Rams baseball program immediately.
The Rams began play in 1971, compete in the NCAA D1 Atlantic 10 Conference and hold a 867- 792-5 since that time.
Campbell is admired by the Terriers coaching staff, is a great team mate and had a banner 2018. Not only was he a major cog in the Terriers pitching staff, he also pitched in Oklahoma at the Junior Sun Belt, firing six innings versus powerhouse Team Georgia.
At the Canada Cup in August Campbell won a gold medal, pitching ten scoreless innings in victories over Quebec and New Brunswick. The New Brunswick game was a semi-final win that propelled Ontario to the championship game.
The accolades continued into September when Campbell suited up for Ontario Black team at T12.
Approximately 31,000 students attend VCU. They offer Baccalaureate, Master's and Doctoral degrees, as well as Professional and Certificate courses. Campbell will be studying Criminal Justice.
Congratulations to the Ellis family on all of their son Campbell's accomplishments.
