A high academic student, Luke Winkler Luke Winkler 5'10" | CG Grant | 2021 State OR could easily be attending school next fall at a four-year school. But the gritty 5-foot-11, 170-pound point guard wants a chance to play college ball and is hoping to decide on a destination for that soon. He and his Grant teammates recently captured the first-ever Oregon Madness title and it was an experience that he’ll not soon forget.

"It was fun playing here, especially in this new facility here in Salem," Winkler said. "Especially after losing to Beaverton, we had the opportunity to finish on a win which is always nice."

Winkler played a big part in the win as the steady hand at the point. He averaged over five assists in the four games played and ended up named on the All-Tournament Second Team. The tournament was indicative of how he played all year, one in which Grant finished up an impressive 14-3 on the year.

"I felt it went good especially with how it was structured," Winkler said. "I think we performed really, really well. A lot of people didn’t think we would be that good this year, but we really came together as a team and did something special."
