Four Questions with Calhoun coach Hal Lamb
Hal Lamb, Calhoun
1. What is the real difference-maker in winning and losing in Georgia high school football? “I think it’s a combination of talent, coaching and chemistry. However, I think chemistry is most important to get you to the top.”
2. Which player that you’ve coached is memorable mostly for his character or inspiration? “I have coached and am coaching A LOT of incredible young men. Jireh Wilson stands out the most. He is a sophomore linebacker at Wofford. His intangibles are incredible. He was a tremendous leader with great character. Our team fed off of his leadership and intensity every single day. It didn’t matter if it was the weight room, locker room, classroom or practice field. He demanded the best from everyone.”
3. What is the best atmosphere for a high school game that you’ve experienced away from home? “I would say the Georgia Dome and Benedictine.”
4. As a player or coach at any level, which game do you wish you could play again? “I would say the Blessed Trinity semifinal game in 2015. I thought it was two very good teams playing at a high level. Blessed Trinity was a very well-coached team with great talent, and the game came down to the wire. I felt like we were good enough to win the state championship that year, but it didn’t happen.”
