Millikan football coach DeJuan Campbell proves that disability is no barrier to success. Watch and share!
Diagnosed with cerebral palsy, DeJuan Campbell couldn’t play on the field, but he’s had an unwavering love for football since age 4. Today, he mentors athletes at Millikan high school to “impact the game in some way.”
“The kids that know me, already know I can coach,” Campbell says. “I’m not the stereotypical coach of what a person thinks of when they think of a coach.”
Coach Jerry Naulls brought Campbell into the fold during his senior year in high school, when he noticed Campbell’s skill for coaching and mentoring young athletes.
“He brings the energy and the drive and the determination in the athletes to teach them what he can’t do himself,” Naulls says.
