British talent Jodhe Campbell signs with the Sharks

B. Braun Sheffield Sharks last night announced the signing of Jodhe Campbell for the upcoming 2020-21 BBL season.

The announcement was made prior to the Sharks preseason match-up against Newcastle Eagles but then followed by an interview via a Sharks Facebook Livestream on Wednesday evening, where the Sharks gameday announcer, Mike Shaft, proceeded with a short interview.

The 22-year-old is a Leicester native and a product of Charnwood Academy. In 2017 he was voted onto the EABL Western Conference team and named runner-up for player of the year.

“I’m excited to be back in the BBL,” said Campbell. “I want to thank Coach Atiba Lyons and the Sharks organisation for this opportunity.”

After attending Missouri State University – West Plains, Campbell signed with the Cheshire Phoenix before making the move to the Derby Trailblazers last season. The 6’0″combo guard averaged 13.4 points 3.5 rebounds 2.4 assists per game.

Campbell is the Sharks 12th player announcement, joining Mike Tuck, Mackey McKnight, Nicholas Lewis, Rob Marsden, Callum Jones, Bennett Koch, Marko Backovic, Kipper Nichols, Antwon Lillard, Nate Montgomery, and Oscar Baldwin.
