Junior defensive back Joey Lamore led the Bullets defense this past weekend against Franklin & Marshall with a career-high 10 tackles. However the Bullets lost the game 24-10 and finished the season 1-9 overall and 1-8 in the Centennial Conference.

Lamore, who tallied 35 tackles this season, 28 of which were solo, saved his best performance for last. He earned nearly 30% of his tackles for the whole season just in this one game against Franklin & Marshall.

Prior to Saturday’s game, Lamore’s best game was against McDaniel on September 22, when he had 7 tackles. Lamore ranks eighth on the team in tackles for this year, and third for defensive backs.

In addition, Lamore forced two fumbles this year, one against Dickinson on September 15 and another against Susquehanna on October 27. He is tied with Senior DE Logan Aikey for the most forced fumbles on the team.

In what has been largely a disappointing season for the football team, whose only win came on October 6 against Juanita, it is performances like Lamore’s on Saturday that serve as high points and hopefulness for next year.

The Bullets have not had a winning season since 2015 and only won seven games from 2016-18, posting a win percentage of .233 in that time period.

Heading into the off-season, Head Coach Kevin Burke will look towards Lamore as a senior leader next year alongside ILB Cole Keyes, who posted 67 total tackles this year, second on the team.
