Luke Davidson is in his second year as a member of the Rapids SOCO Unified Soccer team. The 25-year-old graduate of Thornton High School has participated in Special Olympics for five years, playing soccer, softball and volleyball. The goalkeeper is most proud of winning gold medals in soccer at Summer Games three years in a row.
Davidson is employed at Steamer’s Coffeehouse and Jack’s Eatery in Arvada. “Special Olympics has helped me to be a better person,” Davidson says. “I’m looking forward to traveling with the Rapids team this season.” Davidson enjoys cooking and sewing, go carts, RC cars, and working on cars.
His favorite Rapids stars include Chris Klute, John Berner, Clint Irwin, Joe Nasco and Pablo Mastroeni.
