LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - All Saints senior Luke Stuart signed to play college basketball at Trinity University of San Antonio Friday morning.
He is only the second All Saints athlete that signed to play a collegiate sport. Brett Berger signed with Wayland Baptist University last spring to play basketball
The four-year starter led his team to the TAPPS 2A State Championship last month, where he scored 21 points to win the championship game. All Saints finished the season 30-6 and the championship victory was the 115th win for the senior class. Stuart was named to the All State All-Tournament Team for the third consecutive year.
As a point guard, Stuart averages 22 points per game, five assists per game, four rebounds per game, and three steals per game.
He has been named to the First Team All-District four years, First Team All-Region four years, First Team All-State four years, and Academic All State two years. In addition, Stuart was selected First Team TAPPS All State Basketball four years and the TABC All State Team two years.
