Luke was 9 years old (July 2015) when he suffered a traumatic brain injury in a golf cart accident. In the time since then, his family created Team Luke Hope for Minds – an organization to support the families of those who suffered brain injury.

Luke and Team Luke for Minds captured national attention. The organization brought national figures to Lubbock for fundraising and awareness events. It also got a boost from Chiefs Quarterback Patrick Mahomes when he wore Team Luke socks and bracelets during games.
