Lucas Brown easily catches the attention of other kids and peers at his elementary school due to his friendly smile, gentle ways, sound academics, and athleticism! And because we are based in Texas, we happened to meet Lucas (at the age of 8) at this very elementary school while attending a Friday pep rally for our own family members.
Call it fate call it interesting, we ended up sitting next to a local high-level junior tennis coach (a parent of another student)-- from an esteemed facility in the north Dallas area --during one of the schools pep rallies. Once we acquainted ourselves as ‘tennis folk’ this local coach asked, ‘Have you seen Lucas Brown play?” At the time, we had not. What followed from this coach was, “Lucas is the real deal…lots of talent and one to watch.” And watch we did…
Lucas is now 10 years old but started playing tennis at the age of 6 1/2. Once he hit 7, the same coaches (mentioned above and along with others) began encouraging Lucas to compete in Texas tournaments due to the – then- newly implemented 10 and under ruling for the state. Lucas thrived and by the ripe age of 8 ½ was already rated a Super Champ level player!
To date, Lucas continues to excel and we get a chuckle out of the fact that after trying Wristpect Sport wristbands for a while Lucas’s mom tells us, “Now he REALLY understands the value of a good sweatband! Lucas loves your Wristpect Sport wristbands!”

What is super special about Lucas AND Lucas’ mother is the fact that SHE humbly describes him as a, “gentleman on and off court…he is well respected by his peers.” This is a refreshingly positive comment to hear a parent say about their own child!
Outside of tennis Lucas plays soccer, practices Brazilian jujitsu and Muay Tai. And what makes him an all round great guy is the fact that he is a passionate ‘foodie’ AND loves to play tricks on his sister, Karla. As big brother, Lucas helps Karla warm up for her tennis matches (it runs in the family) AND she is proud to be one of her brother’s biggest fans!
Welcome aboard Lucas!
