On Monday night, September 23rd, the Macon Touchdown Club will welcome Coach Bobby Lamb of Mercer University as our featured speaker.
Since guiding the Bears through a return to the gridiron in 2013, following a 72-year hiatus, Bobby Lamb has continued to build the Mercer football program into a focal point of Macon and the surrounding Middle Georgia communities.
Lamb enters his seventh season as Mercer’s head football coach in 2019.
Named the 19th head football coach in program history in 2011, Lamb led the Bears to immediate success in their first season of action in 2013, claiming the third 10-win season of his coaching career and setting the NCAA Division I record for wins by a first-year program with a 10-2 campaign. The 2013 win total also set a school record for victories, surpassing the previous mark (7), which was set by Lake Russell’s 1931 & 1932 squads. For his efforts, Lamb finished third in the PFL Coach of the Year voting & ranked among the top 11 finalists for FCS National Coach of the Year.
Since taking the helm at Mercer, Lamb’s players have excelled as model student-athletes in the classroom and in the community, participating in numerous volunteering initiatives with local schools, educational programs and more. Three Bears – John Russ, Thomas Marchman and Isaiah Buehler – have been AFCA Good Works Team nominees, recognizing them as outstanding community service leaders.
Lamb’s football program has helped the Mercer athletics department rank atop the Southern Conference in academic standing for three consecutive years by winning three straight Barrett-Bonner Awards and leading the league in academic all-conference selections for three straight years as well.
As always, we will meet at The Methodist 金博棋牌 For Children, in The Rumford Center. The address is 304 Pierce Avenue, and the meeting begins at 6:30 pm.
On Monday night, September 23rd, we will have a special offer for guests. The Guest Fee will be $20.00, and includes dinner, club activities, recognition of local high school athletes, recognition of a local high school and the speaker.
