Dr Colin Campbell was one of the early Tasmanian stars to make their mark in Victoria. Playing for Essendon through the 1890s he was a multiple premiership player and a great rover of his era. Considered to be fast and a long kick, he came out of retirement to play in the first season of the VFL and was rewarded with a further premiership.
