Junior – Forward
6’2 – 230
2017-18 Preview: Lamar is strong and powerful big man who can finish at the rim and step away from the basket for the mid-range shot. His ability to catch the ball, set screens, and rebound allow him to be a complementary and effective force around the solid guards he plays with. As a football player, he brings toughness and leadership to a scrappy team. Playing on a small team, there will be many opportunities for Lamar to step in and provide efficient minutes due to his work ethics and attention to detail.
Past Seasons: Lamar is entering his first season on the varsity level. Last season, he played on JV where he worked hard to earn minutes. Over the summer he worked out to get in better condition and this fall he was a key player on the football team in preparation for this upcoming basketball season.
Personal: Lamar was born on 11/23/00. He is the son of Jennifer Oliver and Jamar Cagle. He attended Cross Trainers Academy for middle school where he played for Coach Boo. His favorite subject at Hamilton is Algebra with Mr. Vang. The Milwaukee Bucks is Lamar’s favorite basketball team and if he could pick any food to eat, it would be pizza.
