Teddy Lampkin: OWH Athlete of the Year

By Chris Williams, Publisher

Teddy Lampkin just keeps on racking up the hardware. Iowa State’s future wide receiver was recently named the Omaha World Herald’s Athlete of the Year.

Lampkin chose Iowa State over an offer from Kansas State. He caught 32 passes for 601 yards and six touchdowns as a senior. Lampkin also scored five special teams touchdowns for Omaha Central.

Lampkin will also compete in track and field at Iowa State next year, a sport that he won four all-class gold medals at Nebraska’s state track meet as a senior. Those gold medals came in the long jump, the triple-jump, the 100-meter dash and the 4X100 meter relay (which he anchored).
