Before Saturday's game, little was known about the rookie out of Texas A&M, who only decided to go to college after his plans with Major League Soccer didn't work out. While there, he converted 84% of field goal tries (21 of 25) to become the most accurate kicker in school history. And this was Lambo's first taste of the sport. He had never played football until he went to college.
Lambo played soccer for much of his youth, and was drafted in the first round (8th overall) of the 2008 MLS SuperDraft by FC Dallas. He played in the MLS Reserve Division, and was a named first team substitute on several occasions, but missed most of the second half of the 2008 season after he broke his jaw in a reserve team game. He has yet to make his MLS debut, but did appear for his team in an international friendly match versus Costa Rica's CS Herediano in June 2009.
He was loaned to USSF Division 2 Professional League expansion team FC Tampa Bay for the 2010 season. He made his professional debut on May 14, 2010 in a 2-1 victory over the Carolina RailHawks.
Lambo was waived by Dallas at the end of the 2011 season.
In the fall of 2012, Lambo enrolled at Texas A&M University and joined the football team as a placekicker. He became starting field goal kicker during the 2013 season, and was flawless on extra points for the 2014 season, hitting on all 59 attempts.
On May 2, 2015, after going undrafted in the 2015 NFL Draft, Lambo signed a contract as a free agent with the San Diego Chargers.
On Monday, he talked to the media following his game winning play. Of the 47-yard field goal, he says, 'I think it was solid. I went out there and did my job.' He also noted that he 'thought sports were out of the question' after being cut by Dallas at the end of the 2011 season.
