Lucas Samsula, University of Wyoming


On Monday, Feb. 6, 2023, Lucas Samsula, senior defensive lineman, signed to the University of Wyoming’s Division 1 football program.

Samula began his football career at age seven, joining a recreational team named the “Ravens” with his fellow first grade classmates. This early start led him to pursue football at Plano West, where he joined the varsity roster his sophomore year.

“I would definitely like to thank my parents for always pushing me to strive for more,” Samsula said.

The University of Wyoming offers both an academic and athletic edge for its students, so while in attendance, Lucas hopes to branch out and explore his major.

“I plan to major in business economics and hope to one day run my own business,” Samsula said.

After committing in October of 2022, Lucas is excited to head to Wyoming and join the Cowboys.

“The University of Wyoming was just a love at first sight kind of school, and when I went up there for an official visit, it kept getting better. You couldn’t ask for a better environment for the next chapter of your life,” Samsula said.
