Last year we counted down every SU football player from Chandler Jones (#99) to Phil Thomas (#1), as you can see here. Well both of those guys (and a few more in between) are gone and it's time to profile the entire 2012 Syracuse Orange football roster starting with the highest number and working out way down. Let's get to it...

Player: Lucas Albrecht

Number: 53

Position: Defensive tackle

Year: Sophomore

Height: 6'2"

Weight: 255

Hometown: Hudson Falls, NY

High School: Hudson Falls

2011 Stats: He's a walk-on, so bubkus.

2012 Projections: See "2011 Stats".

How'd He Get Here: Luke might be a walk-on scrub on the gridiron, but he's no joke on the wrestling mat. After putting out feelers on both fronts, he was offered a chance to try out for the team by Syracuse defensive line coach Jimmy Brumbaugh. One might wonder, though, if he might have been better off trying to hook up with one Jon Jones instead.

What Did Scout/Rivals Say?: Zilch

Money Quote: On the challenges of being a walk-on player.

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

Links of Wonder: Apparently it was a pretty big deal when the kid from Hudson Falls make it to the big time.

What Does Marrone Think?: Not much, though I'm sure it's no slight to the All-Big East academic performer.
