Why do you play football?

Lucas: Playing football allows you to form a brotherhood and basically have a second family. I love the fact that I get to go practice and become a better version of myself, as well as make the guys around me a better version of themselves too.

Who is your favorite sports star and why?

Lucas: If I had to pick one, it would be Christian McCaffrey. His work ethic and how he performs should be enough for anybody to want to be just like him.

Do you have a favorite play you remember the most? Explain:

Lucas: Freshman year our first game and my first varsity snap, I threw a screen that turned into a 70-yard touchdown, which helped me gain the confidence and the other 10 on the field at the time.

what are your goals for this coming season?

Lucas: I want to better the guys around me as well as myself, but most importantly win districts.

What is your favorite Pro team, any sport?

Lucas: San Fransisco 49ers

What sports movie would you watch every day if you had to pick one and why?

Lucas: I would watch Invincible. It’s a fantastic movie and I enjoy seeing Vince Papales career being played out.

Name a sport you’d love to play but can’t?

Lucas: I would love to play lacrosse. Unfortunately, Palmerton does not have a team.

When you aren’t playing, practicing or training for sports, what is your go-to activity, and why?

Lucas: I would choose fishing over many things. It’s relaxing and lets you clear your mind, but fun at the same time.

What is your favorite play to run?

Lucas: A fade when I’m one-on-one.

What scares you the most?

Lucas: Snakes
