Senior Bryce Lamb did something no Sheldon athlete has ever done recently when he signed a national letter of intent to play college football. Lamb, a 5-foot-10, 220 pound running back and defensive lineman, was a key cog in the Stockton-Sheldon football program this year, the first year of Sheldon's co-op with Stockton, which allowed athletes from Sheldon to play high school football for the first time. Lamb rushed for over 600 yards and scored five touchdowns. Defensively, he recorded 10 sacks and forced three fumbles. He will be taking his game to Peru State College in Peru, Neb. The Bobcats are a NAIA Division 1 school and a member of the Heart of America Athletic Conference. He becomes only the second athlete from Sheldon to play collegiate sports. His sister, Logan, signed to run track at Cottey College in Nevada in 2016. Lamb signed in front of the student body. He is pictured with friends and family including Stockton-Sheldon coaches Josh Short and head coach Travis Hurley during a signing ceremony held recently at Sheldon High School. His parents are Tami Wittock and Jerod Lamb.
