OCOEE Central Florida Christian Academy announced April 19 that it had hired Jeremy Campbell as its new head football coach.

Campbell comes to the Eagles from Northside Christian School in St. Petersburg, where he served as associated head coach and defensive coordinator under former NFL star Mike Alstott. In his time at Northside, Campbell played a role in helping build the program up to the point of winning a district and regional championship in 2016 — the program's first since 1986.

Campbell is an Alabama native who played his high school football in Florida at Spruce Creek High. Campbell played collegiately and graduated from Clemson University.

Campbell is CFCA's fifth head coach in as many years, but athletic director Kyle Wills says he is confident he has his man this time around. After Monty Vann left the program after the 2013 season, three different coaches — Michael Bonneville, John Davis and Chris Cook, respectively — each coached the program for one year.

Despite a lack of continuity over the past three seasons, the Eagles went 8-3 in 2014, 7-3 in 2015 and 4-7 in 2016 for an overall record of 19-13.

Campbell will debut as the program's new coach at CFCA's spring game May 19. The Eagles are set to host Cornerstone Charter at 6 p.m.
