Led by Head Coach John Buck, the Raiders of Long Island Lutheran enter the 2019-20 season after a 25-2 effort a season ago that included a New York State Class AA Federation Championship and a #9 National USA Today ranking. The Crusaders will be led by 6’1 senior guard Andre Curbelo, 6’8 senior forward Zed Key (Ohio State) and 6’6 senior guard Jalen Celestine. Juniors Andres Pinzon and Kacper Klaczek will also be major contributors.

Coach Buck talked about this year’s goals. “We are excited to challenge many of the nation’s best teams in tournaments around the country. A goal is to repeat as Class AA New York State Federation Champions.
