Dan Campbell, Jr. began officiating basketball games in 1970. From 1970-1993, he was a top-rated official in New Haven County for high school girls’ and boys’ games, and officiated collegiate games throughout New England. His reputation speaks for itself; he was selected to referee many CIAC Tournament and Championship games (1975-1982), as well as several AIAW playoff games.
Perhaps his greatest basketball memory occurred in 1976, when Campbell officiated peren-nial powerhouses Queens College and Delta State in the Finals of the AIAW Tournament in Vir-ginia. Delta State eventually won in triple overtime.
Campbell served on the New Haven Board of Officials from 1968-1993 and the Women’s Board of Officials in the late 1970’s.
