The Senior just signed his letter of intent with Shippensburg this pas week, he stopped by to speak with 717Sports Stephin McCloskey, conversation is below:
SM: What was the deciding factor in committing to Shippensburg University?
LH: I think the deciding factor were the coaches and players in the program. They made me feel very welcome and it seemed like a perfect fit for me academically as well.
SM: With graduation right around the corner, what’s been your best memory for both football and basketball?
LH: My favorite memory from basketball was winning section, league, and districts. We went on that crazy run last year.
SM: Do you have any tips for someone who may want to pursue football collegiately?
LH: I would say that if you work hard any chance you get and make the most of your opportunities your chances will come to you.
SM: What does your off-season look like? I’m asking because you’ve come prepared and are having a great season with basketball and you played great on the football field in the fall.
LH: During basketball season I do some light working out and once basketball is over I spend the spring working out a lot harder and lifting more with the team and playing basketball any time I get. I’m always trying to be faster and stronger.
Hines and company are looking to hold off Octorara Friday night for the section 3 title. Watching him up close you know this young man is certainly going to be a huge factor. Congrats to Luke Hines on his commitment to Shippensburg, the Red Raiders have themselves a number of playmakers from the LL Berks league.
