Luke began playing in grade eight for the Valley Bulldogs of the Nova Scotia Minor Football Association (NSMFA).

He just finished his second year with the Horton High Griffins of the Nova Scotia Student Athletic Federation Football League (NSSAFFL).

During his career, Luke has earned many awards including Bulldogs Rookie of the Year (2011), Bulldogs MVP (2012), Spalding Cup All-Star (2014), Griffins Offensive MVP (2014) and NSSAFFL Division 1 All-Star selection (2014).

Although Luke has had much personal success on the gridiron, his most memorable moment in 2014 was a selfless one.

“The highlight of last season was doing everything in my power to win our last home game for our seniors and succeeding,” Luke says.  “I wanted them to end their high school careers at home on a good note and they did.”

However, his success without overcoming some personal hardships.  His life was changed when he moved in with his coach in grade 10 during a difficult time.

That coach has become his main source of encouragement and motivation on and off the field.

“The most influential person in my life and football has been Steve Melanson,” explains Luke.  “He’s not only my football coach but my life mentor.”

“He took me into his home and made me part of the family the summer before my grade 10 year because my parents were going through some issues. I moved out later in December a different person. He put a lot of discipline in my life and continues to push me in the right direction with football and in life.”

As for the recruitment process, the Griffins standout is happy with how it has gone thus far.

“I have talked to many schools and it continues to get more exciting,” expresses Luke, who is considering Queen’s, York, Carleton, Mount Allison among his options.  “I love hearing about new programs and talking to the coaches.”

This fall, the Griffins standout will be making the trip out to Sackville, New Brunswick.

“I plan to visit Mount A in the fall of next year, besides that I have no other plans,” Oulton says.

Overall, Luke is hungry to improve and continue to work hard in the hopes of achieving further gridiron success.

“I am constantly watching film to improve my mental game and exercising to improve my physical game,” says Luke.  “I hope to have a break out season this fall.”
