Mr. Lambert ...made a difference!

WHY FOOTBALL: Nowhere else can you see a guy running full speed have the concentration to catch a ball out of midair and still be able to drag his toes in bounds with less than a couple of inches to spare. LEGACY: I hope the boys remember me not as the nicest coach, but the one who challenged them to be better men. DEFINITION OF WIN: Playing beyond your ability. When the team plays better not because they are individually working harder, but because their teammates are challenging them to perform betterthat’s a winning season. PRAISEWORTHY: Marcus ‘The Boss’ King- that kid was always pushing himself

TEAM INTEGRITY: Several of the boys noticed that for every home game, there was a guy standing outside of the stadium, just leaning against the fence watching and cheering on the team. He appeared to be homeless-always in the same clothes, with the same bag. They called him our “biggest fan” and wanted to help him out. The boys had a “Biggest Fan” fundraiser where they collected money, food and got the community involved to help with housing. They coordinated everything and even arranged for someone to discretely reach out to him at one of the games and tell him about the anonymous gift. I don’t know what touched me more- their selfless act or the look on their faces when the man found out about the help. I was proud of them as men, not just players.
