For the Dickson County Cougars, region realigment could not come fast enough.
After adding a proven winner last year in Greg Burns as their Head Coach, the Cougars still had to contend in region play with the likes of Ravenwood, Brentwood, Independence, and Franklin.
Well no more.
After realignment Dickson County now plays in a very winnable region.
Don’t misunderstand me, teams like Overton, Antioch, Cane Ridge, and Smyrna are no cakewalk. However, they are not what the Cougars were facing week in and week out in Williamson County.
Realignment alone would be enough, but that is not the only reason Cougar fans are excited about the 2021 season.
Mid way through last season Colbey Lamberth transferred to Dickson County High School.
Lamberth was deemed ineligible for the year, but still, the excitement from Burns and his staff was noticeable.
Lamberth is a 6-4, 201 pound QB who breathes life into an offense and team that did not have a definitive QB last season.
On multiple occasions, Burns told me he felt like his team would and could have competed much better if they simply had a more capable option at the position.
Not to mention, if you go back and look at Burns offenses at Independence, he relies on his QB to make quick accurate passes and checks at the line.
Dickson will get all that, and maybe more, with Lamberth next season.
Lamberth is currently ranked the #8 QB in the 2023 class headlined, of course, by Arch Manning.
Getting Lamberth in that offense and combining him with a very capable RB like Clinton Shrader, bodes well for a Cougar team that also will no longer feel like a significant underdog each week.
