Chuck Lambert begins his eighth season as Defensive Coordinator for the Sterling College Warrior football program in 2011.
Lambert’s defense ranked first in the KCAC for the second straight year and 17th in the NAIA in scoring de¬fense in 2010, building Lambert’s streak of having a defense in the top 25 in the nation in scoring defense to five straight seasons. Coach Lambert’s 2010 defense was ranked nationally in the top 25 in five different defensive statistical categories.
While at Sterling, Lambert’s defenses have been consistently in the upper echelon in the KCAC.
