At 6’0, 225 pounds with 4.69/40 speed, Lock has proved to be one of the best players in Canada and has become a very productive player no matter where he has been. Lock has played high school football at three different high schools. His freshman year, he started at the varsity level where he was awarded most valuable defensive lineman. As a sophomore, he played at a different school where he was a team captain and finally, he continued to play at one of the best football programs in Canada in Huron Heights where he made a big impact on both sides of the football with 67 carries for 839 yards and 13 rushing touchdowns on offense to go along with 70 tackles, 16 solo tackles, three forced fumbles, five sacks, and a pick six on defense.

Lock possesses great speed as a running back and that translates to the defensive side of the football where he has a consistent motor and continues to play sideline to sideline. The Canadian linebacker models his game after Luke Kuechly.

“I model my game after Luke Kuechly as we are both very smart. I study film to best prepare myself for the game to better anticipate the play just as Kuechly did.”
