What Lamar Head Coach Jason Strickland says: “Offensively, their goal is to just pound you into submission. Their fullback is just a huge load to try to tackle. They are not going to try to trick you they are just going to come off the ball and see how tough you are. Defensively they use their size to clog up holes. They have been great tacklers. It will take a tremendous effort to move the ball on them this Friday”.
