How long have you been playing lacrosse?: I have been playing lacrosse for 10 years.
What is your favorite aspect of lacrosse?: My favorite aspect is the people that lacrosse has brought me close with and the friendships I have made while playing throughout the years.
Do you have a favorite moment or memory from a lacrosse game?: This year was the first official high school season that I could actually play in, and we won the conference championship in overtime, which was a really exciting game to be a part of!
Is there a coach or athlete that you look up to as a role model and why?: My siblings, Tyler Luke and Tristin are all athletes and I look up to them a lot because they are all hard workers and have a great attitude no matter what they are doing. But I also like Gronk just because he's a beast and we had the same arm injury.
Have you ever suffered a major sports related injury? If so, how do you feel that improved your game?: I broke my forearm (both ulna and radius). I think my injury helped improve my game because it taught me the sport from a new perspective. I really got to see the game from the outside looking in and it showed me the importance of hard work.
Do you have any hobbies or interests outside of sports?: I really enjoy long distance running!
How does being an athlete inspire you to do good?: Being an athlete inspires me to always work hard and be a good person both on and off the field.
