Liuchan is a 6'2", 205 lb. outside linebacker from Mission Hills High in San Marcos, CA, north of San Diego.

Liuchan is a versatile player, capable of pass coverage, blitzing the quarterback, and has also been strong against the run for the Grizzlies, who went 9-3 last year, winning the East Division of the CIF Division I Avocado Conference.
