Senior Spotlight: Charlevoix’s Luke Stuck Readies for Hope College
MISportsNow is putting the spotlight on northern Michigan high school senior student-athletes who had their seasons cut short due to the coronavirus pandemic.
After dealing with a series of minor knee injuries during his sophomore and junior football campaigns, Charlevoix senior multi-sport athlete Luke Stuck is getting the chance to continue his career at the collegiate level.
A defensive end, Stuck, who also suits up for Charlevoix’s basketball team, is heading to Hope College in the fall.
Although Stuck was forced to the sidelines during key recruiting years during parts of his sophomore and juniors seasons because of injuries, he helped lead the Rayders to a seven-win campaign as a senior and the program’s first-ever playoff win.
“My high school season got cut a little short with a few injuries, but to be able to get four more years in is not something a lot of people get. Just because it’s been something I want to do my whole life,” Stuck said. “Now that it’s like actually reality, it kind of blows me away. It still like hasn’t hit me yet.”
Stuck joins a Flying Dutchmen program that went 9-2 in 2019, won the Michigan Intercollegiate Athletic Association championship and made a NCAA Division III tournament appearance. Hope has gone 32-9 over the last four seasons.
