Serra junior quarterback Dominique Lampkin knew early on that special things were in store for his football career.

When he transferred in to his new team growing up, all of the pieces were there. He fit in seamlessly with his teammates, and the continual improvements really began to show then with the San Francisco Warriors.

“I just felt great,” Lampkin said. “I knew I could blossom as a player, do better as a player.”

Lampkin wasted no time in producing as a varsity student-athlete.

As a sophomore, he stepped in there and delivered after then-senior quarterback Daylin McLemore – now at Arizona State – broke his collarbone. Lampkin completed more than 70% of his passes and helped guide Serra to a Central Coast Section Division I title and a Northern California Division I-A title before falling by eight points in the state championship game.

The dual-threat quarterback’s final numbers for the year read 750 passing yards, eight touchdown strikes, 448 rushing yards and four touchdown runs – all in his first varsity campaign as a contributor.

And Lampkin is even bigger and better now, as the 6’1” signall-caller has bolstered his strength, along with all of his mental and physical attributes, in preparation for what is the 2021 winter/spring football season.

“I’ve been working a lot on my craft as a quarterback, just doing a lot of stuff,” Lampkin said. “The offseason has been pretty good.”

No offers have poured in yet for Lampkin, but the interest is there from a plethora of Division I universities. Arizona State, Cal, Colorado, Fresno State, Utah State and Washington State have each reached out and spoken with Lampkin, he said.

Lampkin, tabbed as a three-star recruit, is working his way towards his first of many offers and hopes to bring the Padres back to the promised land of the No. 1 team in the state – something they most recently accomplished in 2017.


“My individual goal is to get as many offers as I can and to get more stars,” Lampkin said. “And my team goal is to make it to the state championship, undefeated.”
