As I referenced in my earlier article on Team Luke (click here), former college coach Tony Minnis produced a documentary telling more fully the story of Luke Siegel and his father, former Texas Tech coach Tim Siegel’s, work to turn tragedy into service.
After airing several times on Fox Sports, the documentary is now available for viewing on YouTube. I hope you will take the time to watch the video then listen to my podcast with Tim. Then go hug your kids. Extra tight.

On July 28, 2015, Tim Siegel received a phone call that tragically changed his life. In this week’s ParentingAces podcast, Tim talks about his son, Luke’s, golf cart accident and how his family has turned such a horrific event into a foundation dedicated to helping others.
Tim grew up in tennis, achieving the highest level as a junior player, college player, and on the pro tour before moving into college coaching at Texas Tech University. He lives with his wife, Jenny, and their children in Lubbock, Texas, now working full-time to care for Luke and to share Luke’s story in hopes of raising funds to assist other families that have a child suffering with a traumatic brain injury.
FoxTV will air a recently-produced documentary on Luke this summer. The ITA also produced a short video on Luke which you can view here.
