Bishop Luers Looking To Rebound In 2014

FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) – The 2013 season was unlike any other at Bishop Luers – and that wasn’t a good thing. The Knights didn’t win a game in the regular season for the first time in program in history and finished an un-Luers-like 2-10 overall.
There are a number of reasons the Knights could return to glory in 2014, namely the number of returning starters second-year head coach Kyle Lindsay is welcoming back.
“Last year we had to replace 19 starters,” Linsday said. “This year we have 19 starters returning. In all actuality I think I counted 33 or 34 kids with some kind of starting experience coming back this year.”
That list includes senior running back/linebacker C.J. McCarter, junior quarterback Noah Wezensky, junior defensive lineman Daemen Williams, and junior receiver Austin Mack. At 6-foot-2, 205 pounds Mack had a strong summer on the recruiting circuit and now holds scholarship offers from 11 schools including Notre Dame, Ohio State, and Michigan. Recruiting website 247sports.com ranks Mack as the no. 1 player in the state of Indiana for the class of 2016.
Another major contributor could be senior receiver/defensive lineman Soloman Smith, who is currently recovering from a knee injury.
The Knights will scrimmage Bishop Dwenger next Friday at Bishop D’Arcy Stadium. Luers opens the regular season August 22 at Spuller Stadium against Snider. It will be the week one Highlight Zone “Game of the Week.”
