Jamill Lott began his life in Easley, North Carolina. He was the 1st of 5 children that James & Jena Lott would soon have. He quickly grew up chasing his father's footsteps in the athletic arena as he started little-league football at 5 years of age. As he progressed in age & skill he began to focus his path on the QB & DB positions, similar to his father. Through his high school career at A.L Brown, Jamill suffered a horrific collarbone fracture that left him sidelined for the majority of his breakout season but through the adversity was able to come back the following Senior season he to lead his team back to the 3AA NCHSAA State Championship Title Game in 2008.
A.L Brown hadn't been to the championship game since 1997 & even though they fell short to Greensboro Dudley, Lott was recognized as MVP and threw for 3 touchdowns that game. He ended his career for A.L Brown as 2-time All-Conference, Player of the Decade & was recognized in 2008 as the first QB in A.L brown history to throw for over 2,000 yards & rush for over 1000 yards in a single season.
