Burke served on leadership for one term at Elizabeth Pinkerton Middle School.  He came up with the vision to create a website for virtual clubs on campus and established a task force to ensure that students could join clubs virtually.  He was a member of the Piranhas swim team for 6 years.  He played CYBL basketball for 3 years.  He played baseball for Laguna Youth Baseball for 4 seasons when he was younger.  He made the track and field team at Elizabeth Pinkerton in spring of 2020, but did not get to play due to COVID.  Unfortunately Burke left us much too young on October 17, 2020.
