Football was the dream. It had been the dream since he was old enough to catch it. David Lambert, a current TCC student was on his way to that dream.
After high school Lambert accepted a scholarship to Texas Tech University to play safety. All his hard work and perseverance had paid off.
Lambert had played football all through high school receiving all kinds of accolades, but he still wanted more.
“Playing in college would’ve been great, because it would have fulfilled my dream of playing on that stage as well as my parent’s dream of me in college,” Lambert said.
Even as a kid Lambert would play other sports, but he would live for football.
“I’ve lived on a golf course my entire life. I had the opportunity to play golf whenever I wanted, but when I looked outside I didn’t see the golf course, I saw an even 100 yards conveniently marked off for me and my friends to play football,” Lambert said.
Unfortunately, despite his hard work Lambert would suffer a serious injury to his right knee in his first season with the Red Raiders. College football was over.
He has now returned home and is working on his degree. Despite his misfortune he remains in good spirits. Every now and then he’ll even call up his friends for a good ole pick up game on the golf course.
