Indianapolis Colts quarterback Andrew Luck was recently invited to participate in a lecture series at DePaul University.
When asked if he had any advice to give the assembled crowd of students, Luck, with his dry sense of humor, came up with a fantastic response.
“As far as advice? I’m only 25,” he said, via the Indianapolis Star. “I don’t have any advice.”
Luck was also asked other questions during his appearance at DePaul. He shared some thoughts on getting over being nervous when he was a rookie:
“Dwight Freeney, the most fearsome pass rusher, came up to me and said ‘Look, we’re all behind you. You do it your way,’” Luck explained. “It was awesome to hear on my first day in the locker room. It put all my fears and doubts aside. He squashed all those. That made it a lot easier.”
Luck’s opinion of the NFL’s best defensive player?
“Not on the Colts, right? J.J. Watt,” he said.
We can certainly agree with that one.
Luck’s thoughts on the team not retaining Reggie Wayne?
“It’s not fun. There are guys you love. Professional sports is a business and people come and go,” he explained. “That’s just it. Like Reggie Wayne this year, it stinks. It’s the truth, but it happens. It’s a business. Someday somebody is going to replace me.”
Luck would know all about replacing someone. He took over for a future Hall of Famer in Indianapolis.
