Eagle HS ATH Dillon Lukehart (Eagle, ID) committed to Boise State just a little over a week ago and…
Lukehart Calls An Audible
"Yesterday I was given the opportunity to fulfill my dream and play for Boise State," he said. "I have the utmost respect for Idaho, but I always wanted to play for Boise State," he added.
Both of Lukehart's parents are Boise State grads, so being able to continue that "tradition" is pretty important to the future Bronco.
"It has always been a dream of mine," he stated. "I just think of the tradition, the Blue and Orange. I've been around it since before I could even play football. There's the huge tradition of tailgating and how everyone loves it. It's just a team atmosphere, a team community, and I can't wait to be a part of it."
Dillon was a First Team All-State RB as a senior at Eagle, but he'll play OLB at Boise State. Needless to say, he's quite familiar with the defensive side of the ball since he also played DB for the Mustangs.
"A good comparison is Aaron Tevis. That's where I'll be playing," Lukehart said. "It's really motivating to watch their defense since all eleven guys just fly to the ball. I'm excited and fortunate to be given an opportunity to be a part of it."
Eagle captured the 5A State Championship in 2009, but injuries held them back in 2010. Having said that, they still finished 7-3 and continued to fight hard for each win.
"We had a lot of tough breaks," he said in reference to the 2010 season. "Our starting QB got injured, backup QB got injured, and then our leading WR too. I think we can hold our heads high since we did the best we could and continued striving. I was happy with the way we finished our season."
As a senior, Lukehart (6'1, 200, 4.6) racked up 1,830 yards rushing and 26 TDs. At DB, he had 106 tackles for the Mustang defense.
