About This Issue

Game On! Congratulations to Barrington High School alumnus Lukas Van Ness whose NFL career kicks off this fall. Van Ness is an American football outside linebacker for the Green Bay Packers. He played college football at Iowa and was selected by the Packers in the first round of the 2023 NFL Draft. Nicknamed “Hercules” by his Iowa teammates for his chiseled frame and work ethic, Van Ness found his footing as a defensive end at his hometown high school.
