Junior Luke Heun of Palmer is among the top scorers for the Army West Point rugby team.

The 5-foot-11 winger is tied for third with 25 points on the Black Knights [9-5].

Last month Heun scored three times in a 56-5 victory over Dartmouth, becoming just the fifth Cadet to score three tries.

The Alaskan scored his first try in the second minute, followed by scores in the 14th and 76th minute.

That performance earned him D1A Rugby Player of the Week honors.

Two weeks later, Heun would score in the 30th minute as Army upset the fifth-ranked Utes of Utah, 29-26.

Last season, Heun started six games and actually scored the first try of the season for the Black Knights.

Heun has been an starter at Army at certain points of each of his three years on campus.
