Lambo’s maturity a result of leaving house at 14; Dzubnar “on Cloud Nine” with Chargers

Kicker Josh Lambo has a maturity and sense of self that is a result of leaving the house at age 14; ILB Nick Dzubnar talks about the hours leading up to the cut deadline and why he’s waiting on a locker. WATCH:



Kicker Josh Lambo left his family at age 14 to move to Florida and train with the U.S. Soccer Under-17 National Team. He devoted his life to becoming a professional athlete from that point on and went through an accelerated high school program to accommodate school and training.

“I’ve been training at the highest level of what I’ve done for nearly a decade,” Lambo said.

Inside linebacker Nick Dzubnar said being on the 53-man roster doesn’t quite yet feel real.

“This was always the goal, but man, it was a lofty one back in the day,” Dzubnar said. “This was something you dream of. I went to Cal Poly [San Luis Obispo] to get a good education and I wanted to be a four-year starter. You hope to have the chance to play in the NFL coming out of a smaller school and I was able to get that chance and able to capitalize on my opportunity. Like I said, it still doesn’t feel real. I’m on Cloud Nine and I don’t want to come down.”
