Redshirt senior Jake Lampman prepares for the 2015 season after missing most of the Dawgs’ undefeated 2014 campaign due to injury.
Redshirt senior Jake Lampman may have missed the final nine games of last season with an injury, but he has now made a full recovery, and is poised to be a featured weapon in the Bulldogs’ high-flying offense this year.

Lampman was forced to watch much of the Bulldogs’ undefeated season from the sidelines, but he still managed to rake in 14 catches for 214 yards and score 5 touchdowns before suffering an injury.

The 6-foot 205 lb. wide receiver from East Lansing, MI also accounted for a significant part of the offense in years prior. In 2013, he caught 5 touchdown passes, while rushing for 4 more. The dual-threat standout also collected 674 all-purpose yards on offense.

With Lampman back at full strength and the Dawgs returning several other notable starters this year, there’s no reason to suspect anything but a high-scoring offense, and perhaps even another run into the postseason.

Lampman will make his return to the starting rotation under the lights as the Dawgs open their season at home against Northwood University. Kickoff at Top Taggart Field is scheduled for 7 p.m. on Sept. 12.
