OK White All-Conference interview: Luke Majick
OK White All-Conference
Being a first year starter at QB, what kind of honor is it to earn AC in your first set of games this season?
It’s a great honor to be named one of the top quarterbacks in the OK white, but I wouldn’t have attained this accolade without my teammates and coaches. Coach Ebbert and the whole offensive staff does a great job of putting our team into a great position to execute plays and be successful. The whole offense did a great job executing their assignments all year long and I’m very humbled to receive this accolade.
What do you take away from this experience at quarterback into the offseason and next season for you to keep succeeding beyond just this year?
One thing I can take away from this season is staying level headed throughout the games and to stay calm in tough situations. As a team, bad things are going to happen. My goal is to forget about the past while focusing on the next drive and continue to fight until the end of the game.
How do you need to adjust yourself and your leadership heading into the semifinal game against a team with a couple big wins recently?
I don’t really think that I need to adjust anything I have been doing in the past except for being a great role model to my teammates and community. As we continue to play, the games are getting bigger and bigger. My teammates and I need to be aware of that and block out all distractions in order to achieve our main goal: winning the state championship.
Has there ever been any doubt in your mind that you couldn’t lead this team to the point where you are today?
I had no doubt that our team would make it this far. There is something special about this team. As a brotherhood, we fight to the death for each other because we all love each other. We just pour everything we have into that field in order to get us wins.
What is your favorite memory of the season so far?
My favorite memory has to be the West Ottawa game, because it showed how resilient we were as a team. We faced a lot of adversity that game and we were able to overcome those challenges and get the win as a team.
