Luke Schulz decided to try out for the skeleton team after watching the 2006 Olympics and has quickly risen in the sport. He grew up on a farm in rural North Dakota and attended the United States Naval Academy for a year before transferring to Minnesota State-Moorhead. He ran track at the naval academy and played football and ran track at MSUM before switching to triathlons. His favorite career moment so far was taking second overall in the America's Cup circuit.
Luke is the oldest of three siblings. His brother is a 2nd Lieutenant in the Marine Corps and his sister attends Princeton. In his free time, Luke likes to watch Twins games, golf, water ski, and snow ski.
