The Head Coach of the Gardner-Webb Runnin’ Bulldogs Football team Tre Lamb joined the Kyle Bailey Show earlier this week as he discussed what has been behind a historic run to the FCS playoffs for the Bulldogs.

The conversation with Tre Lamb started with how the program has changed under Lamb since arriving in late 2019 as they are playing in their first FCS Playoff game after winning the Big South Conference for the first time since 2003. He noted how excited the guys are for this opportunity as he gives a lot of credit to the players and his coaches for a quick turnaround within the program.

When it came to building the foundation of this program they really focus on the High School players compared to the transfer portal and that has helped with their plan as many high school players that usually would be with FBS programs are now at Gardner-Webb due to the bigger schools vying for players in the transfer portal.

Tre also broke down his team’s style as one that runs an up-tempo spread offense that loves to run and pass the ball and on the defensive side of the ball, they love to be aggressive. Things end with the matchup with Eastern Kentucky he thinks a play on special teams could be massive on the road and they relish being the underdogs.
