With fall training camp in the books and class set to start, the Lamar football team had its fifth-annual Lamar Football Kickoff Celebration on Sunday evening at the Montagne Center.


Former University of Oklahoma and Dallas Cowboys head coach Barry Switzer was the guest speaker for the banquet, which included a live auction. The highlight of the auction was at the very end when a Dallas Cowboys helmet and football personalized and autographed by Switzer was sold for $23,000.
