Along with his brother Alex, Lucas gave the Etna Lions a potent running attack that helped them to their best record in several years at 8-4.
Case led the Lions in rushing with 837 yards (5th in SCL), averaging almost seven yards per carry. Case was also second on the team in sacks (3rd in SCL, 9th in section), and third in tackles. Along with the stats, when Case hits someone they stay hit, and that makes him an Impact Player Award winner.
