Lucas Panzica

Lucas Panzica is a graduate of the University of Tennessee, and has highly enjoyed the short time he has spent so far in Dickson. Born in Nashville, Lucas moved to Birmingham at a young age and grew up there before heading to Knoxville to go to school. As a first-generation American, soccer has always been his greatest passion, but that eventually led to a deep love for all sports, so if you see him around town and want to talk some sports or just say hi, please do so! You can catch Lucas calling Dickson County football, basketball, baseball, and softball games on 101.5 The One and WDKN.
