WR Lamont Baldwin still hopes for return

10/4/2012

Lamont Baldwin isn't ready to give up on his football career.

"It's a possibility," the receiver from Washington (D.C.) Archbishop Carroll stated via text message to ESPN when asked if he could return to the field this season.

Baldwin hasn't played at all this fall. He said one doctor cleared him to play but another didn't. Baldwin is now seeking a third opinion.

Baldwin suffered a serious injury in summer 2011 when he collided with two other players in a 7-on-7 tournament. Baldwin suffered a fractured cranium and jaw in the incident as well as a severe concussion. He was forced to re-learn how to perform day-to-day functions in a long rehabilitation.

Baldwin missed the entire following season, which was supposed to be his senior year. He was re-classified as a senior in 2012 in hopes of playing this fall, but that didn't happen.

For now, Baldwin will focus on running track. He said he plans to attend Hampton or Hawaii after high school. Both have offered him a scholarship to play football.
