7 QUESTIONS WITH ASBURY PARK FOOTBALL COACH LAMAR DAVENPORT
LAMAR DAVENPORT was a standout wide receiver and defensive back at Asbury Park from 2007-2009 and in those three seasons the Blue Bishops went 33-3 and won their Central Jersey Group 1 championships. They also claimed sectional titles in 2011 and 2016 but in the last five years have gone just 24-21 and last season was marred by an ugly off-the-field incident that cost first-year coach Nick Famularo his job.
Enter Davenport, who had a solid career at Monmouth University and after graduation returned to become an assistant coach at Asbury in 2015 and for the last few years has been the offensive coordinator. A paraprofessional in the district he makes his head coaching debut on Friday, September 2 at Weequahic.
