Coaches Comments: Lucas is our version of the swiss army knife. Lucas plays a multitude of positions and out performs his peers at each one. Lucas has a high level of quickness and will be difficult for tacklers to bring down in open space.
Lucas has been selected as a team captain this year and is expected to lead by example. As a coaching staff we have no doubt that Lucas will fill that role well.
Lucas performs well in school and will have a bright future regardless of whether he chooses to play football or run track at the next level.
