St. Charles North
St. Charles, IL
Commitment status: Undecided
Wt: 190 lbs
LPI: What have you been doing this season to take your game to the next level? Also, do you play any other sports in the offseason?
LS: I play lacrosse in the spring for my high school and then in the summer for a club team where we travel all over the east coast for tournaments. That takes up a lot of my time during the summer along with summer camp. Also in the summer I attended a lot of college camps and satellite camps to try and get exposure. The winter is my main training season, I train with Chris Browning at Proforce Sports Performance Training to get faster and stronger for the football season.
LPI: You currently hold 1 offer from Butler. Besides Butler, what other schools have shown serious interest in you?
LS: Besides Butler, some other schools that have shown interest are Illinois State, NIU, Indiana State, Dayton, Grand Valley State, Northwest Missouri State, U Indy and some other smaller schools.
LPI: Do you have any planned visits set? If so, where at?
LS: I was just at Illinois State this weekend for the game against Indiana State and really liked it. I also plan to go out to Butler on the 21st. Other than those two, I don’t have any more scheduled right now but I am going to try and make it out to Indiana State, Grand Valley state and possibly a few others this fall.
LPI: What do you think you can you bring to the table for a college football program?
LS: I think the biggest thing I can bring to the table for a college program is how dynamic I can be. For my three years on varsity, I have played six different positions and currently this year I play three different positions. Those positions being WR and RB on offense and SS on defense and a lot of the time I come down in the box. I also return kicks and punts.
LPI: Who are some of your teammates or training partners that you believe can play at the next level, but have gone overlooked by college coaches?
Tobi Adedara – Only being Tobi’s third year of football he already has a bunch of offers and deserves all of them. He worked hard in the off-season and it paid off. He is a big, athletic defensive lineman that can rush the QB or stuff the run. He plays flat down the line and gets his hands up when the balls thrown. He’ll get big offers this fall and winter for sure.
Tyler Nubin – Tyler is an insane athlete. He’s a lockdown corner that has big time offers but this season so far he has been going off at WR. He’ll go up and get any jump ball and he runs great routes. Tyler also plays up against the competition. The tougher the game we play, the better Tyler plays.
Mike Hohensee – Mike is a great QB. He has a very strong arm, he is accurate and he can run too. The thing that impresses me the most about Mike is how well he knows defenses. Mike is a student of the game and he can read defenses like nobody else. He knows exactly what coverages they’re in and where to throw the ball.
Dan Daley – Dan is the last kid I want to run the ball at. Dan is a hard hitter and extremely tough. He is the perfect kid to have at MLB. He knows offenses and he gets the job done every play. He fills really well, he blitzes hard and he can get off of blocks.
Alex Westendorf – For only being a Junior, Westy has taken a huge leadership role being one of our most vocal leaders. Whenever things go the wrong way, Alex is the first to pick everyone up. Along with that he is a really good offensive lineman. He is great blocking downhill and he pulls really well.
St. Charles North Head Coach Rob Pomazak on Segobiano on and off the field
“In my 17 years of coaching I have never had a player as dynamic, physical and explosive as Lucas. On the field, he has a great balance of mental aptitude and physical ability. Off the field, Lucas has grown into a fantastic leader. He is an inclusive leader who connects with every player on our team. His effort in practice never waivers and as a student he has proven that great athletes can be exemplary students. Bottom line he is the best I have ever coached.”
