Recruit Profile
I am competitive both in school and on the field, with a 5.15 weighted GPA. I'm told I am coachable, selfless, quick, fluid, and opportunistic, with an advanced lacrosse IQ.

I started playing lacrosse in third grade, and also played baseball on a travel team from first grade to HS freshman year. In the fall of my freshman year I played varsity baseball in addition to varsity lacrosse. In spring of freshman year I chose lacrosse over baseball due to my love for the game and its fast pace, and was starting on varsity by my sophomore year on a team with 20 upperclassmen. I show great coachability, have excellent stick skills with both my right and left hand, and contribute just as many assists as goals made. I play with a fast pace and make quick moves that attack the goal, in addition to exhibiting a strong ride that creates turnovers. My strong work ethic has enabled me to successfully manage numerous AP classes while dual enrolling at Valencia College, earning A's in all my classes. My GPA is 5.15 weighted and 4.0 unweighted. I scored a 1420 on the SAT (98th percentile). I am an active member of the Coastal Conservation Association Club, which entails volunteering in the coastal environments of Florida, and am also active in the Engineering Club and National Honor Society. I pride myself in being a leader in between the lines, in the classroom, and in my community. Outside of school and lacrosse, I enjoy time in and on the water--surfing, wakeboarding, wakesurfing, and fishing.

Luka was our Offensive MVP this season at Boone. He is a strong lefty that can beat defenders with a dodge to score or draw a slide and find a teammate for the assist. His ever improving lacrosse IQ and ability for him to create for both himself and others makes him a constant threat from x or the left side of our attack. His hard work in lacrosse is secondary to his success and accolades in the classroom. He is a true definition of student athlete. Any program would be lucky to have him.

Luka is an outstanding player and teammate that I have the pleasure of coaching through our True Sunny Lacrosse program. He is extremely coachable player who uses his lacrosse IQ to his advantage in creating opportunities on the field for both himself and his teammates. He puts in hard work at every practice to continue to elevate his game and use his size to his advantage as an aggressor off the left wing. He is also one of the nicest kids that you will meet, and gets the job done at a high level in the classroom as well. Luka will have an instant impact and be an asset to any program that he plays for.
