Luis Olivo first joined the NPFL (National Pillow Fight League) in 2007 as a Sophomore in High School. By the time he graduated he was a 3x All-American and 2x Winner of The Golden Pillowcase Award. He chose not to continue professionally after High School, but still currently holds CT State Records for K.O.s, Assists, and Dodges. For his position (Rear-Attacker), he has been Nationally ranked in the All-Time Top-10 for over 15 years (2007-Current). His highlight may have been his pivotal role in the 2009 World Championship (USA vs. Australia), where he earned MVP by leading the Masked Night Owls to a last-second victory over the Kangaroo Power Nappers. His K.O. was the first ever NPFL play to be featured on SportsCenter's Top 10. He was the first athlete to have ever been sponsored by Tempur-Pedic (2008-2009), with previous sponsorships including Sleepy's (2008), MattressFirm (2007), and Sleep Number (2007).

 

After a gruesome scooter incident 30ft from his door left his shoulder scraped and bruised, he has been placed on IR for the 2024 season. He currently resides in CT with his Fiancé.
