Ward’s Lawn Care Player of the Week - Luke Honkala

Name: Luke Honkala
School: Fairport Harding
Grade: 10
Stats: Allowed just three earned runs and struck out 13 in 10 innings in starts against Hawken and Madison. Honkala struck out nine in six innings against the Blue Streaks, who swung and missed 25 of the 75 strikes Honkala threw.
Coach’s Quote: “Luke's commitment to becoming a better athlete over the winter and building upon his long 6-2 frame has been paying off in the early part of the season,” said Fairport coach Mike Ondo. “His velocity is up considerably from where he sat at last year and it's all due in part to the work he has put in himself. You get out what you put in and ‘Luker’ has put in a whole lot.”
Notable: Honkala is part of the PSEO program and will attend either Lakeland Community College or Lake Erie College during his junior and senior years.
