Hello, I’m Luke Proctor, c/o 2022. Last year, I had a very strong year playing on my varsity high school team. I am the only one on the varsity team that played the 1-4 spots this season, but I was primarily a shooting guard and point guard.
Most kids take the summer off and play video games, but not me. I play for a summer team, and I worked out over 20 hours a week in the gym. I have a trainer who works with my strength, conditioning, speed, and accuracy. Since I was little, I have jumped in my mom’s car and headed out of town for an AAU practice. I remember practicing my 5th grade spelling words in the car every week as we headed to practice. I have been a student athlete for as long as I can remember, and I love every minute of it. It takes a lot of hard work to be a student athlete with a 4.0 in AP classes, but I am doing it.
I did make one really big decision last year though, I decided to quit being quarterback for our football team and focus on basketball. That was a tough decision, but my passion is basketball. My goal is to play college basketball, become a graduate assistant, and eventually a head coach. I know I will reach my goal, because all it takes is hard work, and I’m not afraid of hard work.
In addition to my high school classes, I'm taking. college classes through our local community college. By the time I graduate high school, I should have 24 college credits. I'm trying to get most of my college basics out of the way, before I start college. I think that will help make my transition to college easier.
Thank you for reading my story.
