We headed up north to catch up with NFN prospect Luke Imdieke who plays for the Osakis Silverstreaks in Class 2A. We chatted with Luke about his recruitment interest, his team goals, and what he loves about the game of football and the positions he plays.
Position: Running Back, Safety and Linebacker
High School Program: Osakis
Get to Know Luke Imdieke
Imdieke is a two-way player for the Silverstreaks and plays the running back position the way it should be played. “I’m a running back that understands blocking schemes and where the holes are going to be,” said Imdieke about how he plays RB so well. Luke’s biggest strengths on the field are making defenders miss with quickness and his ability to cut up the field. He also displays a knack for getting the tough yards after contact.
Best Part About Luke’s Position
Luke loves the fact that the “ball is in my hands” and I can help my team “win games” Osakis has had no issues winning this year as they went into sections with a 6-2 record.
Imdieke has two offers currently on the table. One from the University of Jamestown in North Dakota and Minnesota-Moorhead. He also had developing interest from and visits from Bemidji State, Concordia-Moorhead, St. Johns, St. Olaf and Valley City State in North Dakota.
Improvements from the Off-Season by Imdieke
Luke’s blocking ability is what needed improvement this past off-season according to his Silverstreaks coaching staff. “I put a lot of time in the weight room to improve my size and strength,” Imdieke said about his off-season workouts.
Luke credits his mentor in football in Osakis Head Coach Bill Infanger who has been Luke’s mentor for “a long time” Luke said.
Team Goals for the Playoffs/Individual Goals
The team goal for the Silverstreaks is to win their section and “punch our ticket to the state tournament” Luke told NFN in one of his final statements. He also had an individual goal, which is to “lead my team and achiever our team goal any way I can.
Luke is the current leading rusher for the Osakis Silverstreaks. Osakis (6-2) has the 1 seed in section 6 of Class 2A. They will play 4 seed West Central Area/Ashby at 7:00 PM in Osakis. Thanks to Luke Imdieke for the report!
