Syracuse Football: Get To Know Your Orange Man - #53 Luke Albrecht

via www.timesunion.com

My grandfather started the Get To Know Your Orange Man series with a dollar and a dream. And now? It's finally done. Lucas here is the final player on the 2011 Syracuse Orange roster to be profiled in this series. You can relive the magic here anytime you want. 

In the meantime, wanted to give a big shout-out to Dan, Matt and Nick for cranking out tons of profiles of SU football players, superstars and walk-ons alike. Grape job!

The final player on your Orange-Man Orientation, #53 - Lucas "Luke" Albrecht.

Position: Defensive tackle

Year: Freshman

Height: 6'2"

Weight: 255

Hometown: Hudson Falls, NY

High School: Hudson Falls

2010 Stats:  Not sure about his stats but Albrecht was named to the NYSSWA All-State Team Class B and other all-star teams as an OL.

2011 Projections: Albrecht won't see the field during a game this season but he'll be a valuable member of the team in practice.

How'd He Get Here?: Albrecht was also a big-time wrestler so he put out feelers in both sports. His father, Dwight, had sent Syracuse some game tape of Luke during his senior year. That caught the attention of D-Line coach Jimmy Brumbaugh.

Albrecht received an academic scholarship to Syracuse and enrolled to study bioengineering. He also received an invite from Jimmy B to try out for the team. He did...and he made it.

Scouts/Rivals Said:. Nothing.

Money Quote: "I'm still getting the technique down," he said. "I want to get faster, get everything down so I don't have to think about what I'm doing."

Links of Wonder:  Hudson Falls' Albrecht walks on to the big stage at Syracuse

Doug Marrone Thinks: No idea but Jimmy Brumbaugh is a fan...

"It takes a while to become a good defensive lineman," Brumbaugh said. "It doesn't happen overnight. He's still learning the game. It's a process. He has good ‘twitch' (quickness) for a big guy. He just has to work on the little things -- working on his stance, his explosion, his hands."

He's a big, strong guy; he gives us some depth there in a spot where we were hurting."

Interesting Nugget O'Interest: Albrecht was the first Hudson Falls student to win the NYS Wrestling Championship

Let Us Get A Good Look Atchya: No football videos but watch Luke get his wrestle-on here.
