From Catholic Head Coach George Hopkins:
"Tucker is was a senior at Catholic High School in Baton Rouge. He has played lacrosse for more than seven years and served as our starting LSM the last two seasons. Tucker's character is exemplary and his academic standing is among the best in his class. He consistently demonstrates good sportsmanship and safe play.
As a senior lacrosse player, Tucker inspired an unprecedented level of commitment at Catholic High. Even with the season cut short due to coronavirus, his contribution was significant and positively transformative. Tucker consistently led by example, always got after it on the field and in the weight room, and throughout his career was one of the most devoted lacrosse players ever to pass through Catholic High School."
