    Pretty good achievement that Luke made the team. he was not a preferred walk-on which means they hold a spot for you. he had to tryout and make the team. that’s tough to do. Those tryouts cannot start until the 1st day of classes so you lose being able to practice most of August. Tough to make a public school team as a true walk-on. Lots of competition.

    Luke should also help the team GPA. he’ll be tutoring the whole freshmen class before it’s over.

    Spot on comment….Right on the money….Luke is a good one and he will help on the field and in the classroom and he’ll give you all-out effort, no matter where he is called to contribute….
