PERSONAL — Born Enoka Coen Lucas on April 29, 1984 in Honolulu. Parents: Gabby and Corinthia Lucas. Family: One brother, one sister. High School (Coach): Kamehameha (Bill Sousa) 2002. Major: Political Science. Redshirt: 2002.
HIGH SCHOOL — Received honorable mention all-region honors from PrepStar magazine and named to the Tacoma News Tribune’s Western One-Hundred list. The Warriors’ first-team all-state offensive guard (Honolulu Advertiser) provided much of the running room for the Interscholastic League Offensive Player of the Year, who paced the conference in rushing and scoring. Fits in the mold of previous Oregon offensive line recruits, possessing quick feet and sound technique that enhances skills as both a pass and run blocker.
OREGON — The two-year starter and second-team all-Pac-10 Conference choice returned in 2005 as lone starter from 2004, and was thrust into a position of leadership along the offensive line with the departure of four seniors. Added responsibility worked to elevate his own expectations, as he now finds himself a nominee for the Outland Trophy as the nation’s top interior lineman. Lived up to the challenges, holding down the starting position almost flawlessly as a sophomore despite hampered with a broken thumb. Injury was the only thing preventing him from starting every game over the past two years and his performance now is expected to exceed all-league levels during every practice and every game. Possesses a command of the offense as well as assignments for every offensive line position, and became a more physical player over the last year. Utilizes his strength and toughness while equalling the school’s top bench press mark by an offensive lineman ever (455 lbs.) during winter testing. Also shares program’s top current power clean pinnacle at his position (341 lbs.). Biggest improvement has occurred in his footwork in the running game as he has learned to remain more balanced. Also his pass protection skills have improved immensely. His versatility has been enhanced by being able to play either center or guard, although his development probably aided by him staying at one outpost. Due to his hard work, already has emerged as one of the league’s best at his craft.
2005 — Started all 12 games at such a high level that he was voted to the Pac-10’s second-team all-conference unit as well as named the Ducks’ most outstanding offensive lineman (Ed Moshofsky Award). It was not uncommon for him to never leave the field when the offense possessed the football and in certain special teams situations, taking part in more than 80 snaps on nine occasions, including 99 repetitions at Arizona State and 97 at Houston. Was a major factor in program improving from 41 QB sacks allowed (10th in Pac-10) in 2004 to 20 (3rd) a year ago. Honored as program’s sole offensive player-of-the-week recipient for his play against Montana and part of the entire offensive front quintet that was applauded for its work with the weekly citation against Arizona State.
2004 — Only a broken right thumb against Stanford could slow the eight-game starter as he opened the first seven games at center before making his final three appearances at right guard. Returned to start the season finale at Oregon State at the latter post. Boasted the unit’s top rating in the Ducks’ win over Arizona in addition to grading very well at Oklahoma and vs. Idaho. Played 109 snaps in the victory at Washington State.
2003 — Although he played behind a veteran senior starter, was able to step onto the field in seven contests as a freshman, including a season-high 25 snaps vs. Arizona. Was able to continue to hone his skills while preparing to take over the starting center position as a sophomore.
2002 — Earned scout team offensive player of the week honors for helping with preparations leading up to victories over Portland State and Stanford during his redshirt season.
