Luke Weiland you will be missed

Luke Weiland was a fixture of Kessel Heat basketball since 2008.  Starting as a player in 4th grade all the way to coaching and running skills camps.  If Luke was in the gym you and everyone else would  know it.  His outgoing personality, constant chatter, and infectious positive energy was what made him so popular. 
His recruiting ability was his most valuable asset, as a 7th grader he was able to get his buddies Drew Peterson, Ryan Wittenbrink, and Myles Braun to leave their other AAU program to join his Kessel Heat team. This was critical as the following year we took 6th in Nation out of 128 teams in Orlando, FL at AAU Nationals.  This is also where Luke shined; playing a higher ranked opponent and nobody expecting us to win we faced a great team from North Carolina with a 6 foot 7 inch center.  We put Luke in the game and I told him to do whatever he could  to shut him down. First possession, he catches the ball 15 feet away from the basket and he knows he is not supposed to shoot that shot, especially at Nationals. But in Luke fashion he shoots it and swishes it.  And to add icing on the cake the ref actually called it a 3 when he was about 5 feet inside the line. Well 2 minutes later the 6 foot 7 inch center and Luke are tussling in the block and all of a sudden the kid turns around and punches Luke in the face.  The ref T's the kid up and ejects him from the game. Luke just ran to the other end of the court with a big smile and we had the game won. 
After graduating from Libertyville High School he went on to Nebraska.  He continued to help with skills camps, tournaments, and just be in the gym with his Kessel Heat buddies whenever he could.  He will  be deeply missed and we love you Lukey!!!
