In a game filled with bashing and brawling, being the biggest, strongest and fastest is critical on the gridiron. Those attributes, however, don’t concern the 215-pound, 6-foot-4-inch Stanley Lambert. For the freshman linebacker, it’s what is above the shoulders he knows he needs to strengthen.
“I’m going to grow a lot mentally and physically,” Lambert said. “Right now, I’m strong enough physically. But mentally sometimes whenever I start to mess up, I break down a little bit. I’m just learning how to brush that off.”
