Lamar Dawson, senior at Boyle County High School has signed to play football at the University of Southern California. Most notably known for his exploits on the football field, where he earned Mr. Football this fall and was one of the top recruits in the nation. But not forgotten by the track community, he was also the Class AA State Champion in the Shot Put last spring. He threw a personal best mark of 52-09 to win last June.
With his football future secured, the question is will he be back to defend his title this spring in the Shot Put. This week, KYtrackXC.com posed that question to Dawson and he said, he was not sure yet and that he might be back out.
