Professional football player. After graduating from high school in Rochelle, Illinois, Stanley Hugh Campbell played football for Iowa State. He was drafted by the Detroit Lions in 1952 in the 18th round of the NFL draft. He signed his first contract for $5,000. The contract stipulated that he provide his own shoes and shoulder pads. He played offensive guard in the NFL for nine years, playing in three world championship games. He played on the Detroit Lions (1952, 1955-58), Philadelphia Eagles (1959-61), and finished up with the Oakland Raiders (1961). He won three championships (Detroit 1952, 1957 and Philadelphia 1960) and missed out on another while in the service. He missed his prime years in 1953 and 1954 to serve in the Army. He retired from the NFL in 1961 at the age of 31. He returned to the Rockford, Illinois, area and started a business. He coached some in semi-pro football and did some scouting for the pros. He was afflicted with Alzheimer's about 2000 and spent his last few years in nursing homes prior to his death. (bio by: Mel Bashore)
