Lamar Football eager to get 2013 season started
Ray Woodard begins his fourth season at the helm of the Lamar football program in 2013 with a promising future on the horizon. The 2012 season saw Lamar compete against a pair of Football Bowl Subdivision (FBS) teams for the first time since reinstating the program. The Cardinals, who finished 4-8 on the year, took on former conference rival Louisiana-Lafayette and also took a trip to face the University of Hawaii. While Lamar was voted to finish near the bottom of the Southland Conference, some players, like senior defensive lineman Jesse Dickson, are out to prove the doubters wrong.
"Every player on this team has been up here in the summer working hard and that effort is going to show when we get on the field. That passion is going to reflect how much work we’ve put in, and you don’t have to believe. Seeing is believing and you’re going to see it."
