Lucas reporting for duty at Army
Damascus senior running back-linebacker Brian Lucas, who tried a little bit of everything to garner some recruiting attention, finally found a place for next year. He will play at Army.
After recovering from off-season shoulder surgery, Lucas rushed for 1,097 yards and 17 touchdowns to lead Damascus to the playoffs for the 12th consecutive season. As a junior his totals were 1,089 yards and 14 scores. He played his first two varsity seasons at Sherwood.
At 6-feet, 210-pounds, Lucas was a tad smaller than the prototype for most Division I programs, but he made up for it with a terrific work ethic and knack for hustling that showcased itself in several facets of the game. He always seemed to be around the ball, whenever a tackle was made, and he had several highlight clips where he carried defenders on his back for extra yardage, or on this one from the Crab Bowl, where he bulled over anyone in his way for a 65-yard touchdown.
