Luetjen Is Auditioning For Scholarship

Derrick Luetjen of Hennessey, Okla., has scholarship offers from Army, Tulsa, and Louisiana-Monroe, but lately the 6-3, 265-pound defensive lineman and offensive tackle has been courted on a regular basis by Oklahoma State.

The Cowboys are looking for defensive tackle help in their 2011 class, out of both the high school and the junior college ranks. Luetjen, who has a brother that is playing football at Army, knows Oklahoma State has their eyes on him.

"It is nerve wracking," said Luetjen of the attention. "I'm loving it and a I love the opportunity to go up there and play. I thought I played well in our first scrimmage with Cashion and Blackwell."

The talk was that Luetjen had several sacks in that scrimmage and he has another opportunity Thursday night in a scrimmage at home with Perkins. Last season Luetjen finished with nine sacks.

The regular season begins for Hennessey on Friday, Sept. 3, when Hennessey travels to Oklahoma City to play Northeast Academy at Douglass High School's Miller Stadium.

Currently, Luetjen reports he is playing defensive end and offensive left tackle, but he is projected as a defensive tackle.
