Lucero said he’d like to someday become a track or football coach, possibly even at MHS.
When he’s not at practice, Lucero said car repair is his biggest hobby.
“It’s a genetic thing,” Lucero said. “My grandpa on my dad’s side, he knew his way around a (Chevrolet) engine or around any engine. He mainly worked on Chevy because it was always easier to work on. And then my dad, he’s good working around engines as well. I guess I kind of picked up on it from them.”
When someone moves as often as Lucero has, it can be hard to feel like any one place is home.
In joining McAlester’s track team, Lucero found the anchor he needed to finally feel settled.
