Luke Wallace is in 9th grade and has been at CDS since 5th grade. Luke has 2 dogs, both black golden doodles, named Rocket and Groot (don’t ask). Luke loves football. He doesn't play it but he knows the game really well. He knows multiple players, he knows their stats, he knows how quick they run a 40-yard dash. Luke also loves playing music, specifically the guitar which he’s been playing since around 5th or 6th grade. Luke started with piano and drums in 2nd grade, though. His favorite song is Runaway, by Kanye West. Luke’s also into gaming. He has a PS5 and an Xbox One and plays games like Madden, Star Wars Battlefront, No Man’s Sky, Battlefield, and more. His favorite game is Madden by far, but that’s only because of his love for football itself.


Luke's Epic Playlist:

  1. Runaway (Kanye West)
  2. Saturday (Twenty-one Pilots)
  3. Hey-ya (OutKast)
  4. Hollywood Sucks (Kenny Hoopla & Travis Barker)
  5. Feel Good Inc. (Gorillaz)
  6. Ball is Life (Swae Lee ft. Jack Harlow)
  7. I Don’t Want to Talk (Wallows)
  8. Posterity (Ludwig Göransson)
