Banner Graphic: What is different about being a senior as oppose to other years?

Lucas Lorian: In previous years, I've always had the seniors to look up to. They were looking out for the young guys and always took charge. I like being a leader of this team. When guys have needed help, those guys are coming to ask me and I think that's cool being the older guy and helping out.

BG: What are some of your individual goals and your team's goals?

LL: Our goal is to win the county, conference and a sectional title. That's what we're working for and striving to do everyday. I didn't set a goal for myself in terms of numbers or stats but I wanted to better the team each and every day.

BG: Who inspires you in your personal life to do well?

LL: My family always stays on me and inspires me to do better. My team and the South Putnam family keeps me going no matter what I'm doing.

BG: Who are your best friends on the team and why?

LL: Most of the seniors on the team and I have played together since elementary school. Joey Masters and I have been friends ever since we met each other through football.

BG: What do you like most about football?

LL: The football family we have is one of my favorite things. That family is like nothing else you know. You see them day in and day out with everyone striving to accomplish the same goals. Being around these guys and playing the game is big for me.

BG: What are your goals after highschool?

LL: I definitely want to go and play college football. Along with that, I want to major in sports medicine and athletic training. I have heard from several schools and made a couple of visits but nothing is set in stone.
