Pierre Campbell Granted Release
The Lubbock Lone Stars all-time leading rusher has been granted a release from the organization. Pierre Campbell, who was an IFL All-Star selection for his work in the first 6 games of the season, had been slowed by a nagging thigh injury for several weeks and did not play in the last two ball games for Lubbock.
Campbell rushed for 165 yards on 31 carries, a 5.3 yard average, and scored 5 touchdowns for the Lone Stars in 9 games. Wednesday he decided he could be better utilized with another team after Lone Star coaches informed him he would have to earn back his position from incumbent Laurence Nolen.
Nolen has played lights out in games against Odessa and San Angelo, and was a big reason the defense has allowed only 19 combined points in the second half of those two ball games.
Pierre leaves the team as the Lone Stars all-time rushing leader as well as one of the leaders in tackles for the season. Campbell has not stated where he would prefer to play, but Amarillo and San Angelo, the only teams with a better record then the Lone Stars, already have big time feature backs. Amarillo has DeWayne Miles, the IFLs leading rusher, and San Angelo has former NFL star Mike Green.
The Lubbock Lone Stars wish Pierre the best of luck wherever he ends up.
