Steven Faucheux–Football-Purdue University


Steven Faucheux is a three year varsity starter at Lakota West.  The 6’5”, 275lb defenseive lineman missed a good part of his senior season due to an injury, but finishes his career at Lakota West with 42 tackles and five sacks. Faucheux has been All-Academic GMC team and was a 2016-17 Under Armour Future 50 selection.  Last spring, Faucheux was the conference champion in discuss and was a regional qualifier in the shot put and discus.  He was also a member of the 2017-18 Lakota West Varsity basketball team averaging 8 minutes per game.  “Steven’s success is a testament to his hard work and passion for the game of football. Despite breaking his leg in week three he was able to battle back and contribute to the team at the end of the season.  His leadership was invaluable this year considering the difficult circumstances faced by the program. I believe he will be a valuable part of the Purdue Boilermakers football program.” said Lakota West Football Coach Jeff Wadl.
