03 Feb 2024 William Lamb – Guy-Perkins (501 Basketball Team 2024)
Although this season hasn’t gone the way William Lamb and his teammates had hoped, the senior point guard is hopeful the Thunderbirds can catch some playoff magic one last time.
“[Two years ago] we made it to the final four in the state tournament,” he said. “This was just a moment everyone wants to experience, and when you’re with all your brothers, it just feels like home. You feel like you’re with your family. My goal is to be a better leader for my team and contribute to my school on and off the court. Our team goal is to work better, communicate better and give more effort. The only way we can achieve this is if we believe in ourselves and continue to lift each other up with positive thoughts.
“I want to be remembered as someone who loved the game, someone who always plays like it’s your last game because you never know when it could be over.”
Last season, Lamb contributed as Guy-Perkins’ sixth man. This year, his responsibilities have expanded considerably. “I expect him to be our best overall player,” said Guy-Perkins Head Coach Keane Guiden. “His best quality on the court is leadership. Off the court, he has an outgoing personality and is willing to help others. He helps his teammates with assignments and projects.”
Lamb is also a member of the Guy-Perkins baseball team, and he participates in Future Farmers of America. After graduation, he wants to pursue a career at Dassault Falcon Jet and become CNC machine certified.
