Luke Robinson '23 competes at elite lacrosse showcases
It can be difficult for athletes to stand out at a showcase event.
Wilbraham & Monson Academy’s Luke Robinson ‘23, however, makes it look easy.
After playing the event’s standard three games, Luke was selected to compete in the all-star game at the One Percent Showcase in Tinton Falls, New Jersey, July 6.
Luke was just one of 40 players in the Class of 2023 to participate in the all-star game. His accomplishment comes eight months after being named the top defenseman at the Nike Boys Philly Showcase in Pennsylvania.
In July, Luke earned a spot on Team New England and played in Maryland at the Under Armour All-America Underclass Tournament, one of the top lacrosse events in the country.
Luke on attending the One Percent Showcase: “I felt fortunate to have the opportunity to play with the top talent in the 2023 class. The team I was placed on (2023 White) connected well from the start and ended the day undefeated, which was rewarding for us all.”
Luke on making the all-star team: “I was really excited to hear I was selected to be on the all-star team at the end of the day. I was able to be coached by two current Premier Lacrosse League players. I learned a lot from them throughout the game.”
Coach Mike MacDonald on Luke’s ability as a lacrosse player: “Luke has been a staple of the WMA Boys’ Lacrosse program since eighth grade. He was the top defenseman on the team this year, and he is a true student of the game. Luke's dedication and consistency has helped open up solid academic and athletic opportunities at the next level. Luke is already known amongst the coaches in the league as one of the top players, and I will be looking to him for a lot of leadership moving forward. It’s been an absolute pleasure working with the Robinson family over the past decade, and I am excited for Luke's opportunities as a student-athlete moving forward.”
