Luke is a natural-born competitor. While growing up, he participated in eight years of baseball, six years of basketball, and four years of track. During his time on the high school track team, he was a state qualifier in long jump, triple jump, and the 2014 state champion in high jump. He was recruited to jump at University of the Incarnate Word, where he spent an additional two years competing. He broke the university's outdoor triple jump record and indoor high jump record in those two years. During his freshman year of college, he fell in love with dancing, and by his sophomore year he was led to Arthur Murray, where he has since trained as an instructor with the goal of competing professionally.
