Luke Easterling – Writer
Luke is a former collegiate quarterback who brings more than a decade of NFL journalism experience to BucsCentral. He founded Gridiron Central in 2000, providing NFL Draft and fantasy football analysis for seven years. He then served as NFL Draft & Fantasy Football columnist for The Tampa Tribune for three years, and still covers the NFL Draft for TBO.com and TheGrimBrothers.com. He has also written for Football.com and The Ashland (Ky.) Daily Independent.
Luke has bled Pewter & Red from literally the very beginning, being born at a hospital directly across the street from Tampa Stadium/RJS. His father attended every single game during the 0-26 run, and his mother wowed the Tampa Stadium crowd once with a trumpet solo at halftime while in her high school band. From growing up with Gene Deckerhoff being the only window to Buccaneer action every Sunday, to watching the Lombardi Trophy bathe in the Tampa sunlight, Luke has lived and died with the Pewter Pirates from Day 1.
When not prognosticating about the pigskin, Luke enjoys spending time with his wife and daughter, playing drums and video games, and eating Brocato’s Cuban sandwiches. To contact Luke: Luke@BucsCentral.com
