Tech quarterback recruit Gonsioroski dies from cancer

For Luke Gonsioroski of Billings, Montana (Baker H.S.), who was planning on walking on at Texas Tech in the Spring, the dream of putting on a Red Raider uniform on Game Day will never come true, but his toughness will certainly inspire. He returned to the football field in the fall and led his team to the Class B playoffs while starring at quarterback.

"We are deeply saddened to learn of Luke's passing", Texas Tech coach Kliff Kingsbury said in a release provided by the school. He is survived by his father, Charles, his mother, Katina, and younger sisters, Hannah and Hope. Luke was not only an exceptional athlete, he was also an incredible person, great student and leader in his community.

The X-ray showed an eight-pound tumor attached to Gonsioroski's lung, which was later surgically removed.

"He was such an inspiration through his fight and unwavering faith", Kingsbury said. It was truly and honor to know him. He underwent more treatment this summer. The Texas Tech Red Raiders issued him the opportunity to join the program as a preferred walk-on.

Gonsioroski was first diagnosed with cancer last spring.

Gonsioroski was only taking the beginning steps towards becoming a man before being taken by one of the most confounding diseases in medicine today.

"God got a great one", Baker football Coach Dave Breitbach told 406 MT Sports on Monday.

Gonsioroski was under hospice care and returned to his family's ranch where he passed away on Monday surrounded by his family.
