DURHAM, N.C. -- Sophomore Luke Kennard has made a name for himself as a McDonald's All-American, USA Basketball gold medalist and, most recently, a crafty scorer for the Duke men's basketball team.

Kennard ranked third on the team last season with an average of 11.4 points per game, shooting a team-best .889 from the free throw line. Sometimes pegged as only a shooter, Kennard excels at getting into the paint and can score from all three levels.

In addition to his prowess on the basketball court, the Franklin, Ohio, native was once one of the top high school quarterbacks in the state of Ohio.

A three-year letterwinner in football for Franklin High School, Kennard was named Ohio Division II Offensive Player of the Year in 2013 after throwing for 2,331 yards and 26 touchdowns while also rushing for four scores.

In this episode of The Crossover, Kennard shows off his QB skills with the help of former Duke football players Blair Holliday and Johndre Bennett. After knocking off the rust for a little while, Kennard and company have some fun reenacting one of the more memorable plays in recent Duke football history.

While college basketball fans primarily know Kennard as one of the most dynamic young players in the ACC, he shows in this Duke Basketball feature that he has more in his repertoire that just the round orange ball.
