FLINT, Mich. (WJRT) - Saginaw High has produced some of the great basketball players to ever call Michigan home.

With such a rich pipeline of talent year in and your out, most players have to wait to showcase their skills. This was the case for Derrick Campbell.

Last year, Campbell only averaged six points playing behind star guards Sir’Real Smith and Freddie McIntosh. But this season, Cambell numbers are through the roof. He’s averaging 19 points, 6 rebounds, 5 assists and 3 steals.
