During his junior season, Lokerson played both ways for the Panthers. On offense, Lokerson totaled 38 carries for 250 yards, plus 3 receptions for 65 yards. On defense, he made his presence known. He recorded 126 tackles, caused 3 fumbles, recovered 2 fumbles, had 1 interception, and scored 2 touchdowns.

Coach Shaun Boylan told IC, "Chris is a great kid and a very cerebal player. He is a team leader, both on and off the field. He has a good nose for the ball on defense. The best way for me to describe Chris is, an unselfish player who would rather lay down a good block for his teammate, then to score himself. I have very high expectations for him next season."

Last season, Lokerson was selected All Division Lineback by the All-Shore Awards Asbury Park Press, All County 2nd Team Defense by the Ocean County Observer, and Gannett Newspaper 2nd Team by the Sunday Star Ledger.

Lokerson is taking his senior season seriously with speed agility training twice a week.

This summer, Lokerson plans to attend the Maryland and Penn State football camps.

Lokerson has heard from a number of schools to include Hofstra, Maryland, North Carolina State, Northwestern, Penn State, Rhode Island, Rutgers, and Syracuse.

Lokerson says his top ten are Penn State, Maryland, Virginia, Hofstra, North Carolina, North Carolina State, Delaware, Pittsburgh, Syracuse, and Wake Forest.
