Legendary legacy

TYLER, TX (KLTV) -   Earl Campbell is the greatest football name to ever come out of Tyler.  The 'Tyler Rose' suited up in John Tyler blue.  There will be another Campbell on the field when John Tyler faces Tyler Lee this Friday night.  This Campbell will be sporting Raider red.

Tyler Lee senior linebacker Austin Campbell is the first member of his family not to play for John Tyler.   Earl's nephew says it makes for a fun week when Lee meets up with their cross town rival.

"It's a little bit of pressure but I like it," said Campbell.  "I get to show that there's one over here at this school that can do a little something too. It's definitely fun, especially when you get out there and you see some family members in red, some in blue. I have a cousin that's a cheerleader on that side. You might get the guys in the red and the women in the blue and then they switch it at halftime."
