Rosewood’s David Lamm enjoyed a breakout performance during last week’s Little River Rivalry against C.B. Aycock.
After a tough first half, Lamm bounced back in a big way by finishing the game with three rushing touchdowns and helping to lead the Eagles to a 27-26 victory.
Down 20-12 at halftime, the Eagles stormed back to take a 27-20 lead, but with seconds left in the game, the Golden Falcons scored to make it a one-point game.
C.B. Aycock elected to go for the win with a two-point conversion attempt, but the Eagles held off the Golden Falcons to seal the victory.
“In the first half, I started off rough, but my team was just encouraging me and lifting me up, and I think that’s what helped change the momentum during the game,” Lamm said. “Throughout the game, the coaches were telling us to keep our heads up.”
It marked the first time since 1999 that the Eagles defeated the Golden Falcon on the gridiron, and Lamm credited his coaches and offensive line for helping have him three touchdowns.
“It means a lot because we haven’t beat them in like 22 years, and they’re an amazing team, and it was battle, and it’s so awesome to play against a good team and get the win,” Lamm said. “Our offensive line is outstanding, we had some young guys come in and fill some spots, and they just worked, and it’s just awesome.”
Lamm already eclipsed his touchdown total from last season when he rushed for two touchdowns on only eight carries.
And after waiting for his opportunity during his freshman season, Lamm is stepping into a more significant role this season for the Eagles. He is doing whatever it takes to help the Eagles have another successful season.
“I worked really hard for this, and it just feels good,” Lamm said.
