Sad news, my thoughts and prayers are with your family Luke.

A great kid, too young for this.

RIP Luke

R.I.P. Much Love....

Luke....May The Good Lord Bless you and your family and keep you always in his loving arms forever. You were a Cane and you will always be a Cane but now you are really pitching in the Big Leagues. Rest In Peace.

R.I.P. Luke, you will never be forgotten.

Godspeed my friend. You were a Soulful young man and spiritually connected as could be seen in your eyes. I met you once and knew you through my son Joe. Thank you for the brief moment you gave me.

God bless him...

Way sad. My thoughts are with Luke's family. Cancer is a terrible part of our existence, robbing us of our loved ones in some cases like with Luke way too soon. The U family mourns with you.

Sad news....RIP.

I hope there is baseball in heaven. Sad to see someone so young go so soon.

RIP - Luke, Hurricane family will always be with you....

god bless LUKES family from all of us.
RIP

Always so sad, especially when so young, and when it's part of the UM family. I graduated way before Luke, but saw his heroics on TV here in Nashville.

God bless his family, and RIP Luke.

A fine young man ...

U were fun to watch pitch

This is the crappiest app ever, the dolphins one is so much better. Randy Shannon gets a contract extension for sucking and it's still not up?!?!
