Lucas' baseball coach is Nick Dorsey.

He said his best attribute is his work ethic and just trying to be the best player, student, and person he can be.

He has played baseball for about 12 years. He said his favorite part of the sport is the friendships he has made along the way.

"My high school athletic career has completely shaped who I am today in the way of my work ethic and giving my all in sports and the classroom," he said.

Lucas most likely will attend Illinois State University and major in kinesiology to pursue a career in athletic training. He has been a high honor roll student all four years of high school.
