BOWLING GREEN, Ky. – Coming off of Campbellsville University football's first win of the season last Friday, freshman defensive back Chance Lucas earned the Mid-South Conference Defensive Player of the Week for football, MSC officials announced Monday.
Lucas, the Tigers' starting safety, had a strong performance in just his second ever collegiate games as he recorded two interceptions, forced a fumble, recorded a tackle for a loss, and broke up a pass against Pikeville in CU's 14-13 victory.
His first interception led to Campbellsville's first touchdown of the game as he picked off UPike quarterback Trevon Wofford on the first play of their drive with 5:24 in the second quarter. The Tigers preceded to go on a 42-yard, seven play, drive that led to CU taking a 7-6 lead going into halftime.
In the fourth quarter, Lucas got his second interception with 6:08 left in the game and the Tigers leading the game 14-13 at the time. Lucas made the pick around the CU goal line and returned it to the Campbellsville five-yard line to stop a Pikeville drive to attempt to take the lead in the fourth.
Not only does Chance play football for the Tigers, but is also a member of the track team. Lucas is the son of Howard and Laura Lucas of Brownsville and is a 2020 graduate of Edmonson County High School.
