There’s a good chance West Jefferson senior quarterback Lance Lambert will be playing college football somewhere after he graduates next year.
He continues to improve those chances with each strong showing at a national combine. The 6-1, 185 pound Roughriders signal caller recently competed in the Blue-Grey Super Regional Combine at the Pro Football Hall of Fame in Canton. His performance there has coaches taking notice.
According to words written by Sean Ceglinsky, the Media Director for Blue-Grey Football, Lambert is garnering attention from college coaches. In a post-combine write-up he mentioned the West Jeff quarterback, “Lance Lambert, QB, West Jefferson (OH): With visits already to schools in the MAC underneath his belt, the 6-foot-1 and 185-pound senior opened up eyes.”
Lambert, who earned the invitation to the Super Regional based on his performance at the regional in Cincinnati back in the end of April. He’s competing with hopes of earning All-American honors.
The two-day Super Regional event featured All-American candidates competing against each other under the watchful eye of college coaches. Those selected as All-Americans will serve as a pool to select the squads to compete in one of three Blue-Grey All-American Bowls. These games will be televised on the Impact Football Network and ESPN3 and will be played at AT&T Stadium home of the Dallas Cowboys, EverBank Field home of the Jacksonville Jaguars and Raymond James Stadium home of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Lambert ran a 4.91 in the 40-yard dash, had a broad jump of 8’-1” and his shuttle time of 4.47 was fastest among the combines quarterbacks.
“Blue-Grey has a great reputation with a lot of colleges and universities,” Lambert said prior to the Super Combine. “These combines will hopefully get me noticed and if I can be named an All-American that would be great. I would like to play football at the next level.”
