Farmington’s Lamb to Illinois Wesleyan

(Farminton, Mo.) When you’ve got a defensive back who has caught more passes from opposing quarterbacks than the receivers he guarded, you know you’ve got a good one. That’s the type of senior season Eli Lamb turned in for the Farmington Knights. Lamb played cornerback and wide receiver in addition to being a special teams stalwart. Lamb’s particular set of skills have attracted the college scouts and Eli’s has signed with NCAA Division Three Illinois Wesleyan

Eli scored in a variety of ways for the Knights this year by catching passes, running the ball and also returning an interception for a TD. Like many young skill players, Eli enjoyed the offensive side of the ball more early in his career, but he’s found a home at cornerback..

His high school coach Erik Kruppe says Eli was made to play corner…

Coach Kruppe says that Eli’s numbers would have been even better if teams weren’t so frightened to challenge him…

Lamb played his senior year at 6 feet, 175 pounds. He says he’ll be working hard to pack on some college muscle…

Lamb will study exercise science and eventually wants to become a chiropractor. Farmington went 10-3 this year and went to the state quarterfinals. The Titans of Illinois Wesleyan went 6-4.
