Team Info:


John Campanale: Head Coach; Offensive Coordinator; Quarterbacks; Linebackers

[email protected]

Coach Campanale is building St. Mark’s football into a more competitive program, focusing on the tenets of diligence, desire, and passion in pursuit of establishing a proud “New Tradition” upon the already storied history. The program aims to inspire and educate players for both love and knowledge of football. He seeks student-athletes who are exemplary citizens and who are multi-sport athletes. As an English teacher, he models the well-rounded approach of the ideal St. Marker: one who can enjoy studying Hamlet in the classroom during the school day and one who battles and fights on the gridiron in the afternoons and on Saturdays.

Coach Campanale served as Offensive Coordinator at Watertown High School in 2007 and at St. Sebastian's School in the I.S.L. for the eight prior years. He coached at New Hampton School, during the 1998 Class C NEPSAC champion season. He performed as Defensive Coordinator for Bridgton Academy from 1995-1997. He began his career coaching receivers and tight ends at Middlebury College (where he played receiver) and Bowdoin College. He lives on campus with his wife Tara and their two children, Grady and Joss.
