Long-time hockey Trainer Doug Campbell was recognized on Saturday evening by the Sarnia Lambton Sports Hall of Fame as one of their 2014 Inductees. Mr. Campbell was presented with the Bud Morrison Award. The Bud Morrison Award recognizes a person who over a number of years has made significant contributions to the youth in their sport endeavors. (ie. coach, manager, official, trainer, facility maintenance, including school officials).
Doug Campbell is a Level 3 Trainer originally from Glasgow Scotland, who came to Canada in 1963 and has been involved in sport ever since.
Since 1996, Campbell has been a Trainer with numerous hockey clubs including AAA, Jr. C and Jr. B throughout Lambton County. He was the provincial Trainer at the OHF/OHL U15 Camps(2013,14), U16 Camps (2007,08,09,10,11,12) and the U17 (2003,05,06,13) OHL Camps. Mr. Campbell also completed 14 consecutive years as Trainer at the ALLIANCE Hockey Under 17 Camp in Woodstock.
Mr. Campbell is known in the minor hockey community for his many attributes including his positive attitude, willingness to help in any situation and most importantly, for always treating minor hockey players with respect and kindness.
ALLIANCE Hockey is very grateful to have Mr. Campbell be part of our programming and he is one of those people who can never be replaced or duplicated. His “hands out of your pockets” moniker is known Province-wide and you would be hard pressed to find a player involved in minor hockey over the last many years who doesn't know “Dougie” and who isn't thankful for the opportunity to have worked with him or been on a team with him.
Congratulations Doug on this well-deserved honour!
