Congratulations are in order to Luke Del Rio, the high school quarterback son of Jack Del Rio, who has earned a scholarship to Oklahoma State.
Luke transferred from a Florida high school to a Colorado high school a few months ago, after his father was fired as coach of the Jaguars and hired as defensive coordinator of the Broncos. He was on the radar of a few smaller football programs previously, but after a strong performance at a football camp in California, he got the offer from Oklahoma State.
“I want to play in the NFL someday, that’s my dream,” Luke Del Rio told Scout.com. “They run a pro-style offense that features the passing game. The last few quarterbacks they have had have been very successful and it’s the perfect offense for me, it fits me really well.”
At a time when so many parents are coming forward to say football isn’t a suitable sport for their sons, it’s good to see some of the men who have benefitted so much from football have sons who are embracing the game. Fathers like Jack Del Rio and Ray Lewis should be proud to see their sons succeeding on the football field, just as they have.
