Running consistently in the 1:56-1:57 range to start 2006, well off his personal best, he dropped a 1:54.39 in the pouring rain at the Pomona Invitational to win his section. Then at the Cal Poly SLO - UCSB Dual Meet, he notched another seasonal best, just .04 off his personal best. After a less than stellar open 400m at the Occidental Invite, he opened up in the 800m prelims of the Big West Championships racing to a spot in the finals and a new best of 1:52.48. Campbell would go on to finish sixth as a true freshman in another good time of 1:53.60. High School
