Dawson-Tackling-McG.JPGName - Lamar Dawson

Position - LB

Class - Freshman

Size - 6'2", 235 lbs.

Age - 17

High School - Boyle County (Junction City, KY)

Comparison - By donning the #55, the inevitable comparisons to past Trojan greats come with the jersey's legacy.

Prep Career - The U.S. Army All-American was "Mr. Football" in the state of Kentucky after 158 tackles and 8 sacks in his senior year.  He also played running back and tight end, while scoring 16 TDs on offense.

Fall Camp - Dawson's learning curve was accelerated when starting middle linebacker Chris Galippo went down with a shoulder injury.  To paraphrase Joe Barry, he has made some mistakes, but he has also made a lot of plays.

In his own words - Dawson (photo by John McGillen) on being just the second Kentucky native (Kurt Barber) to play at USC: "I'm just out here because I want to be great."

Here is Dawson's introduction to the Los Angeles media...
