Get to Know Your Orange Man: #18, QB Luke MacPhail

A Syracuse QB you may not be as familiar with (yet)

North Carolina v Syracuse

Name: Luke MacPhail

Position: Quarterback

Year: Freshman

Height: 6’4”

Weight: 229 lbs.

Hometown: Boston, Mass.

High School: Dexter Southfield

2020 stats: Did not play

2021 projections: Syracuse added two more quarterbacks so Luke is likely to remain on the scout team. It will be interesting to see where he is in a couple of years.

How’d he get here?: He accepted the Syracuse Orange’s PWO offer over an offer from Elon University.

What’d recruiting sites say?: Two stars from 24/7 where he was ranked the #19 prospect in Massachusetts.

Money quote: Luke’s HS coach Casey Day wouldn’t be surprised to see Luke suceed during his Syracuse career.

“I think it was pretty evident from Day 1 that Luke could play college football. He has the physical presence, the talent and high football IQ – but he also had an elite work ethic. He loves football and he loves to work hard.”

Tweets of wonder: The Force is strong with this one

What movie would Dino recommend for him?: With that tweet we’re definitely going with The Empire Strikes Back for Luke. Not only is it the best Star Wars movie it fits with this year’s football team looking to get back to a bowl game.

Interesting nugget o’interest: One of Luke’s high school receivers was Jacob Kraft, now a walk-on at Boston College and the grandson of former Columbia Lions player and current New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft.
