Lincoln senior basketball player Malik Rucker passed away in a car accident on Sunday, April 8. Malik was scheduled to graduate this spring.
Malik was involved with many different things at Lincoln High School. He was a leader of the student section and a baseball player as well. Rucker’s big personality leaves the entire southside and Lincoln community with heavy hearts. The support he showed his fellow classmates was unmatched in his time at Lincoln.
Malik’s impact on the Lincoln Basketball program was substantial as he always put the program ahead of himself. He had many different roles within the program and attacked each one of them with enthusiasm and engaging positivity.
An announcement on Malik’s funeral arrangements is forthcoming. In the meantime, a Go Fund Me account was created through the Rails Basketball Booster Club to raise money for his family during this difficult time. Please visit this link.
