Bryce Campbell played his early football with Turvey Park, in Wagga Wagga NSW. He represented the NSW-ACT Rams in the Under 18 TAC Cup, and in 2003 played for Eastlake in the ACT State League. The left-footed 19 year old then made his move to Norwood in 2004.
Physical and competitive, "Cambo/Rocket" played 17 league games in his debut season for the Redlegs. The on-baller had a solid year and was awarded the McCallum Trophy for the Best First Year Player.
Campbell played 16 games in 2005 and was named the club's Competitor of the Year. He made another 17 appearances the following year, reached his 50 game milestone and was again the recipient of the Competitor of the Year Award.

Campbell also represented South Australia against Western Australia during the 2006 season.
At the end of 2006, Campbell was chosen by the Adelaide Football Club with selection 78, in the National Draft. He made his AFL debut late in the 2007 season - shoulder, back and ankle injuries having severely hampered his chances of playing regular AFL football. Despite only playing 12 games for the Redlegs, Campbell finished fifth in the club's 2007 best and fairest award.
He was delisted by the Adelaide Crows at the end of 2008, having added another seven AFL games during the year.
Campbell had an impressive 2011 season and in the process played his 100th game for the Norwood Football Club. However, he seriously damaged his knee in the Preliminary Final, and as a result missed the entire 2012 season. It was late June, 2013 before he was finally able to play again.
After two games in the Reserves he decided to leave Norwood and return to country New South Wales where he was player-coach of Corowa-Rutherglen (Ovens and Murray Football League) in 2014 and 2015.
His father Russell, played for South Melbourne, before moving to Woodville in the SANFL (1981-82).
