Dan Luketich has been named the Clinton High School boys basketball coach as announced Monday by athletic director Matt Koeppel.
Luketich currently resides in New Jersey but is a native of Roxana, Illinois. Coach Luketich was impressed with how dedicated to finding a coach Clinton administrators were and liked the energy everyone has for the programs of the district.
For Coach Luketich, he wants his kids to play fast on both sides of the ball. He described the defensive style of play as 'playing with their hair on fire' and says the pressure will never stop.
Coach Luketich has worked at camps across the country from Point Guard College, worked summer camps at Creighton University, and has been able to attend summer workouts for KK Split in Croatia, traditionally one of the top club teams in Europe.
Additionally, he has coached at Ridgewood High School under Coach Chris Mroz in Chicago, Horizon High School under Jerry Conner in Arizona, Bourgade Catholic High School under Tim Benedict in Arizona, and most recently at Bergen Catholic High School under Billy Armstrong in New Jersey.
