His favorite TV show is "Friday Night Lights" and his favorite movie is "Remember the Titans." His other favorites include the color hot pink, his cat Rosco, the subject health, and the food bacon cheeseburgers.
Luke's most memorable high school moment was stepping on the football field for the last time as a lion. If Luke could spend the day with anyone he would spend it with his Uncle Larrel because he passed away when Luke was in high school and he never got the chance to meet him since he is named after him.
Luke is going to be attending Morningside College next year in Sioux City to play football and attain a business major. In the future he sees himself married with at least one child. Luke's words of wisdom to the underclassmen are "Listen to your teachers, work hard, and be yourself!"
Good luck in the future, Luke! You will be missed!
