Tyler Lucas #17

Tyler Lucas, 1992-2011
Issaquah High School Lacrosse
Seattle, West Coast Starz
Team Washington
Junior Stealth

Tyler died tragically in a car accident on February 1, 2011 on the cusp of his senior season. An all-star long stick defenseman, Tyler was known even more for his pure love of the game and the joyful spirit he brought to life and lacrosse.

In his honor, lacrosse players who knew him or were somehow touched by his story will be wearing "TL17" helmet decals in 2011. Sales of the decals are benefiting the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation, at the request of the Lucas family.
