It drove him as a teen in high school sports and in the classroom to be a better student. It drove him to the military after graduating from Perham High School. When Luke lost his right leg in an IED accident while serving in Iraq 18 months ago, he lost more than his leg. He lost his ability to compete. For a while. He spent 11 months in San Antonio, Texas recovering from his injuries. "I became active again," Luke said.
