Player Bio

Damian Lamonte Ollie Lillard, son of Houston and Gina, was born in 1990 in Oakland. He has a sister, LaNae, and a brother, Houston, who once starred as a quarterback for the Indoor Football League's Tri Cities Fever. Lillard started his high school career at St. Joseph Notre Dame in Alameda CA before transferring to Oakland High School after his sophomore season. He spent four years at Weber State and earned a professional sales degree in 2015 from the College of Applied Science and Technology. Lillard appeared in two exhibition games for the US National Team in the lead up to the 2014 FIBA World Cup and was named to the 2019 USA Basketball Men's National Team training camp roster. He has partnered with several area high schools for his RESPECT Program, which encourages all students and staff to "Show Up, Work Hard, and Be Kind". For these efforts and more, Lillard received the NBA's Kia Community Assist Award in 2013, as well as the Trailblazers' own Maurice Lucas Award. In 2019, he was selected as the winner of the J. Walter Kennedy Award by the Professional Basketball Writers Association for "showing outstanding service and dedication to his community". Lillard has also embarked upon a career in music, releasing several projects under the name Dame D.O.L.L.A. More information about his's music can be found at damedolla.com. You can follow Lillard on Twitter @Dame_Lillard and on Instagram @damianlillard. Lillard spent four collegiate seasons at Weber State in Ogden, Utah. As a freshman, he was named the Big Sky Freshman of the Year, and became the first true freshman to make the All-Big Sky First Team. The next year, Lillard led the Big Sky in scoring with 19.9 points per game. He was named the conference MVP and again made the All-Big Sky First Team. He only appeared in nine contests during his junior season, as a foot injury sidelined him for most of the season. After taking a medical redshirt, he returned in 2011-12 and once again claimed the Big Sky Conference MVP Award after averaging a school-record 24.5 points per game and becoming the first Big Sky player to earn AP All-American honors. Lillard left Weber State as the school's all-time leader in three-pointers, free throws and free throw percentage. His 1,934 career points were good for second in school history and fifth in the history of the Big Sky Conference.
