Career highlights and awards

Christopher Ryan "Chris" Lutz (born February 11, 1985) is a Filipino-American professional basketball player for the Meralco Bolts of the Philippine Basketball Association (PBA). Lutz grew up in Bedford, New Hampshire.

As a senior in Trinity High School in Manchester, New Hampshire, he averaged 20 points, 5 rebounds and 5 assists per game and was a 3-time member of the first team All-State Selection. To date, he is Trinity's all-time leading scorer with over 1,600 points.[1]

After graduation from Trinity, Chris attended Brewster Academy in Wolfeboro, New Hampshire as a postgraduate. At Brewster, Chris averaged 15.5 points per game and emerged as a top-level NCAA D1 recruit. He was an All-New England Prep School selection honoree. He signed a letter-of-intent with Purdue University in November 2004 after receiving interest from Columbia and Vanderbilt.

Playing the guard spot, Chris made it to the Big 10-All Freshmen Team in Purdue University. He then transferred and played for the Marshall University's Thundering Herd where he eventually became team captain.[2]

He would later join the Philippine National Team, Smart Gilas and then the 2011 PBA Draft where he became the 3rd Overall Pick.[3]

PBA career[edit]

Chris filed his application for the 2011 PBA draft in July 2011.[4] And, on August 18, 2011, he was picked 3rd Overall by the Petron Blaze Boosters with whom he signed a 1-year contract in September of the same year.

His PBA debut on October 5, 2011 was quite impressive for a rookie. In the game versus B-Meg Llamados, which they won, Lutz chalked in 19 points, 6 rebounds, 3 assists, and 1 block.[5]
