He didn't participate in track in the spring as he worked to get back from the injury.

“He's had a really good summer,” Warehime said. “He's back to full speed and getting better and better.”

Lawrence's understanding of the game gives him the potential to break out with even more attention as the season goes on, Warehime said.

“He has the God-given athletic talents but he also just really understands the game,” Warehime said. “He's one of those athletes that doesn't come around very often.

“He has the potential to really blow up this year if things go right.”

Lawrence isn't bothered by the leg injury that cut short his season anymore and is confident that will lead to big things on the field. Del City is dropping from 6A to 5A and returns almost all of its lineup from last year.

“Last season was tough but we're going to be a lot better this year,” Lawrence said. “We're a team this time. Everybody's showing up to workouts and everybody is committed to doing what we have to do to be a good team.”

Individually, Lawrence is even more confident.

“Not to be cocky or anything but I don't think anyone can stop me,” Lawrence said. “If anyone stops me, it's going to be myself.

“I think that's the attitude I've got to have for me to be successful.”
