A standout player on the St. Maries football team signed a letter of intent March 13 to play football for the Defenders at Dordt College.

Luke Feasline plans to study pre-med at the private, Christian based college in Sioux Center, Ia. The college has offered him a $7,000 academic scholarship as well as a $12,000 football scholarship for each year he attends.

“It’s a really good Christian based school and they have a football program that is up and coming,” Luke said, “and I will have the opportunity to start as a freshman.”

Luke played football for St. Maries High School for four years as a free safety and starting quarterback, a position he’ll play for Dordt College.

“I just really love the game,” Luke said. “I love the brotherhood of football and the competition. And playing football in college just gives you the chance to do more. I’m very excited.”

St. Maries coach Craig Tefft has no doubts Luke will be successful in his pursuits, both on and off the field. Coach Tefft has coached Luke during his high school career the last four years.

“Luke’s best quality is his commitment to becoming better,” he said. “He practices year round; he just doesn’t play in the fall. He works at it in the off season.”

Coach Tefft said Luke has an “infectious attitude” that rubs off on others and makes them want to do better as well.

“He’s has that leadership quality,” he added. “And he’s very coachable. He listens and he applies what he hears. I think he will do very well at the collegiate level. He’s very dedicated and doesn’t do anything halfway.”

Luke is the son of Mark and Kelly Feasline.
