It was only a matter of time.
When you run a 10.44 100 meters as a sophomore, you attract attention.
That is exactly what happened to Paul Lucas, a running back at Phoenix (Az.) Mountain Pointe.
What Lucas lacked was varsity football film. He got plenty of film on a national stage last Friday against powerhouse Bishop Gorman out of Las Vegas.
In the Sollenberger Classic, Lucas had a coming out party, rushing for 126 yards and 2 touchdowns. What better way to get your game footage out then on a nationally televised game on FoxSports1?
Oregon State noticed and FoxSprtsNext has confirmed that the Beavers have become the first program to offer the speedy Lucas a division-one football scholarship.
