In the three-plus years since his son Luke was seriously injured in a golf cart accident, the good days haven’t been particularly plentiful for Tim Siegel.
Saturday was one of those good days for Tim and Luke.
Tim Siegel, the former Archbishop Rummel tennis standout who served as head men’s tennis coach at Texas Tech for 23 years until retiring in 2015, has stayed close with current and former Red Raider coaches and players since stepping away.
They’ve played a helping hand as Siegel has built a foundation for families who have children with anoxic brain injuries called Team Luke Hope for Minds. The Siegel family remains big Red Raider fans.
Saturday started with a football scrimmage on campus. Luke Siegel was the star of the scrimmage, scoring the first touchdown of the day.
Luke, our Executive Director’s son, scored a touchdown this afternoon at the Texas Tech scrimmage! Way to go Luke!!

Perhaps not coincidentally, March is Brain Injury Awareness Month.
You can learn more about Team Luke Hope for Minds at the organization’s website.
