Cam bearing seal

I have a 2005 2.5 Wrangler. I had a bad oil leak from the front seal on the cam shaft from which I understand is comon. The problem occurs when there is play in the cam shaft. I bought a new cam and all new seals and a mechanic put it all back together. It still is leaking oil but no where near as bad. It got taken apart again and the front seal was damaged. Orderd a new seal and put it in and that one got damaged as well.

I'm not sure what could be causeing this to happen. Can anyone help shed some light on what I can try next?

Thank you in advance!
