AthleticTraining Intern Lucas Graham
Lucas Graham is serving as an athletic training intern with Weber Coaching.
Lucas is a graduate of Cal Baptist University (CBU) and is currently finishing up his Master’s degree with in emphasis in athletic training at CBU. Lucas expects to finish his athletic training program in the spring of 2018.
Lucas ran track and cross country for CBU. In addition, Lucas won a total of seven state championship individual titles in track and cross country while running in high school.
Lucas is still the third fastest 1600-meter runner in Thurston County (Lacey, Washington) history with a time of 4:12.99. He is one of the toughest runners mentally that I have ever coached in the sport of cross country.
Lucas is gaining all the experience he can. He has already served as an intern with one of the top high school football teams in the nation in California and was hired as an intern with the Seattle Sounders Professional Soccer team in the summer of 2017.
With a quest for knowledge, a strong work ethic, and his commitment to excellence, we have no doubt that Lucas Graham will become one of the best athletic trainers in the United States as he gains more experience.
