Luke has only been playing football for about 6 years, but possesses a wealth of experience and talent.

“I have played four seasons of senior football at my high school, and two seasons of junior football at Delhi high school as well,” says Luke.  “And I’m about to start my first season in the OFC with the Hamilton Hurricanes.”

“My high school is Delhi District secondary. For the upcoming season, I have committed to the University of Windsor though.”

At 5’11 and 240 pounds, Luke is an extremely versatile football player as he has been able to play many different positions, which in turn, has helped his team to many successful seasons. Due to the success of not only his individual achievements, but also his team achievements, Luke has experienced many memorable moments.

“My most memorable moment was my championship football game my senior year; we missed a late 1 point conversion and the game came down to a two point conversion to tie it up and the opposing team missed the catch in the end zone by a finger tip,” says Luke.  “We won the game 28 – 26!”

Luke believes that his coaches and parents have been role models for him, as they’ve showed him the ropes and have helped him establish the basis for a solid football career.

“The biggest influences in my life are my parents and in football my coaches (Dave Lane and Rob Underhill) and my teammates (Kyle Vanwynsberghe and Seton Battin) and J.J. Watt from the Texans because he’s a great player and an amazing person,” says Luke.  “Because of these people, I have been able to be successful and be who I am.”

Much like many other football players, Luke believes that his non-stop motor and his dedication set him apart from others.

“I think my best attribute as a football player is my love for the sport, I love to grind it out every day for football and school so I can make it to university and get better at my positions,” says Luke.  “I’m always involved in something to do with football, either in the gym training or playing catch with friends, I just want to do every little thing that will put me a step ahead of the competition, or put me one step closer to my dream of playing at the next level.”
