SE Badger 7v7: Justin Lucas
Posted May 4, 2011

Justin Lucas and his Bulldogs of Aberdeen made it to the top of the 3A mountain each of the past two seasons, but were unable to claim the golden ball at the top. The talented linebacker is poised for a break out campaign in 2011, a season he hopes includes winning a state title. This past weekend he did his part to win another championship.

"This year our goals are to win the division again and go for that gold ball," said Lucas.

"My goal is to be the leader of the defense. I need to know what everybody needs to do and where to go at all times."

Justin is eager to get back to the grind of football practice.

"We start spring practice Monday," said Lucas. "I am ready to get those pads on. I have been missing it since we left that field in December.

"I have been thinking about it the whole off season. It's never left my mind."

There may be some who expect Aberdeen to falter this season, but Justin plans to prove the doubters wrong.

"There are some people who don't think we can get back this year," said Lucas. "We want to get back and win that gold ball.

"Offensive lineman are going to be out there doubling and triple teaming Channing (Ward), but that is just going to leave openings for me to make plays for our defense."

Lucas plans to attend summer camps at LSU and Ole Miss.
