On February 2nd, Senior Lane Bourdon committed to Presentation College in South Dakota. Lane is a three time Varsity Letterman. Bourdon plays middle linebacker and fullback. Head Coach Palumbo addressed all the athletes in the room by saying “ You are always being noticed!” By Bourdons sophomore year he was certainly being noticed by his coaches and as a crucial piece to the Bulldog defense.
Lane has been involved in the football program all four years. His sophomore year Lane was on the scouting team and that was when his rise to the top began. Bourdon proved to be an extremely important player in the first 4 games of his Junior year. Unfortunately his Junior season was quickly over when he came face to face with a serious knee injury. Lane took the next year and a half to rehab and prepare for his senior year.By the end of Bourdons senior season the highlights were endless.This is only the 5th time in the last 10 years a bulldog has gone on to play football at the college level.
“We will be very proud of you and we are very proud to send you off Lane,” Coach Palumbo explained. Bourdon’s athletic career shined brightly at the ceremony but his character and commitment to his family, friends, and school even more so. Lanes teammates and friends filled the room with hugs and smiles of encouragement. It was very evident Lane is not just a number on the field but an important piece to the Bulldog culture. “Thank you for making me the person and player I am now,” Bourdon said in regard to his coaches and trainers. When asked how he felt about his transition to Presentation College, Bourdon said, “A mixture of nerves and excitement because I’m going from a team I know and have bonded with for four years to a completely new team but I’m excited for what the future holds for me and no matter what I do or where I go I will always be a bulldog.”
