High school football star moved from California to North Carolina after state shut down football during COVID

Lucas Lenhoff, a quarterback at Myers Park High School in Charlotte, North Carolina, moved to the state to play after California shut down high school football amid COVID-19, according to a local report.

Lenhoff wasn’t the only one — he and four other football players from Los Angeles moved to North Carolina to pursue their dreams after the state blocked them from playing on their high school teams, FOX 46 Charlotte reported.

“When corona hit, you know, our head coach told us back home that we weren’t going to play football this year,” the football player told the outlet. “…Fortunately, my parents believed in me and the dream, and I moved out to Charlotte, North Carolina, to play high school football.”

“My goals and aspirations have always been to play Division 1 football in front of 100,000 people,” Lenhoff, who threw 39 touchdowns and over 3,000 yards in the fall, told FOX 46. “…I haven’t given up on the dream, and that’s one thing I’m going to keep doing is chasing the dream.”
