Early Life and Education
Lucas Stieber hails from Green Bay, Wisconsin where he attended Southwest High School.

He recently signed on with Gardner-Webb Runnin’ Bulldogs in 2022-2023 as a point guard and stands six foot three.
High school life for Lucas can be tough due to his nerdy looks and meek demeanor; however, Cappie Roew, an older student who plays football for Phoenix is his protector.

Even without experience under his belt, Stieber proved himself as an impressive point guard who could score from any perimeter position and quick passes and free kicks that gained him so much praise from spectators and opponents alike.
