"What he's gone through over the last couple of years, the spirit that he had every day, to battle through it, to always be thoughtful about the people in his life, 'How's my mom doing?"

Luke Laufenberg battled Burkitt's lymphoma since he was first diagnosed on December 26, 2017, just weeks after wrapping up his first season at Mesa Community College.

Cowboys coach Jason Garrett, a longtime friend of the Laufenberg family, struggled to hold back tears as he spoke briefly with reporters during Thursday's press conference. How's my dad doing? Whatever was going on, he just had this way, this strength unlike I've ever seen. As long as I am coaching, I will relay all the lessons that Luke taught me to the individual lives I will affect. It's such a tragedy. It's so hard to understand. "But I know that I will, and anybody that ever knew him, will be forever inspired by the life that he lived". He had walked on as a tight end at A&M in 2016 after playing at Argyle Liberty Christian and Jesuit in high school. He was diagnosed with Burkitt Lymphoma in 2017.

Aikman and Garrett frequently visited Luke.

Luke Laufenberg, the son of former Dallas Cowboys quarterback Babe Laufenberg and a tight end at UTEP, has died after a almost two-year battle with cancer. He was truly inspirational. You are my hero. He was declared cancer-free in May 2018 but had since battled complications. "See you on the other side".
