Landstown ATH Brent Stukes talks about following in his brother’s footsteps

The Stukes legacy at Landstown High School continues as Brent Stukes strives to follow in his brother’s (Bryson Stukes) footsteps.
Besides the overall record for Landstown, Brent Stukes had a remarkable season in football and in basketball the Eagles went on quite a run before their season came to an end at Woodside in the 6A Regional Championship game.
“Coach Rob was just like we are going to get back to work and keep coming back and keep coming back, we aren’t going to stop the grind. Whatever he tells me to do, I’m going to do. Whatever he expects me to do whether its to play big man, guard or get some water, I’m going to do it for him,” said Landstown rising junior, Brent Stukes.
As Brent draws near to the start of his junior football and basketball season, he tries to focus most of his time toward strengthening and fulfilling the proper steps for his destiny.
“I thank God for my athleticism, it’s all God given. My mom and dad were also athletes so it’s probably in my genes too. My dad was a big star at Indian River High School and my mom was a track star at Deep Creek but I get it from them and Jesus Christ,” said Eagles’ Brent Stukes.
He attended the Hampton Roads Youth Foundation football camp to continue striving toward those goals, one of which is to be just as good as his brother, or better.
“I wanted to work on my speed and juke moves a bit at the camp and I wanted to make sure I go to the cornerback and quarterback group as well. I can get on his [my brother’s] level, I know his skill set isn’t the same as mine, but at the quarterback position, I want to get better than him and I’m getting there,” said Stukes.
Bryson Stukes graduated from Landstown in June and will continue his football tenure at Hampton University.
While the eldest is off to HU, the youngest is going into the second half of his high school career with offers from Delaware, UMass, Hampton University and NC State. That leaves lots of time for other colleges to catch on to the progress he’s making on the gridiron and on the hardwood at Landstown.
