Lukas Buckley wanted to play college lacrosse in a new environment. Now, he’s fighting to return to his back yard.
Growing up in the shadows of Gillette Stadium, the Walpole, Mass., native knows a lot about success. A New England Patriots fan, he’s witnessed plenty of winning.
With a strong Xaverian Brothers High School program, he learned about making that a reality on the lacrosse field.
“I think for me, I focused in high school on being the best player I could,” Buckley said. “If I got the chance to play, great, but it was never a point where I was focused on where I was going to be too much.”
