The Clash of the Titans was the very first camp for Dinwiddie’s Cornell Lucess (2021 DE 6-0.5 237). He performed as well as other participants. He was selected for the position showcase at the end of the camp. With this being his first camp, he dominated the drills and one -on- ones like a polished veteran. Dinwiddie has produced countless defensive stand-outs and Lucess is another one on that list. He learned a lot from the camp, that he can easily add to his game for college recruitment.
When asked about his experience at the camp he stated, “This is my very first camp that I have ever been to and it was the best experience of my life. It was a different experience, I seen faces that I haven’t seen before and I learned different techniques and moves. I learned more stuff as I was going throughout the camp. It was different coaches out here that was actually pushing me.”
Lucess displays the maturity every leader needs and his biggest attribute is leading by example.
“As for me being a senior, it’s my job to teach the younger guys because they are rising and they are going to be the ones that are replacing us after we leave. I have to leave a legacy and I do that by showing them what I learned from this camp and take it out there on the field.”
He continued, “It is very important to me being a leader because I have to give back. When I was a freshman, there were seniors that were doing the same thing for me. Playing for Dinwiddie Football, the legacy never ends”
Lucess has a bright future and any college would love to have a stand-up guy like him on their team. This pandemic has put the fall football season on hold, but when it’s time to get back on the gridiron, Lucess is going to show how dominant he really is. Underclassmen can learn from a guy like Lucess. The type of player he is can have a program competing for a championship every year. Lucess shared this with the underclassmen, “Keep your head up, don’t give up, and always learn new things.
