Indianapolis Colts: Andrew Luck Helping Community With More Than Just Playoff Appearances
Indianapolis Colts quarterback Andrew Luck went out of his way this week to help the community, just like Peyton Manning, the man he replaced. When Manning arrived in Indianapolis, he immediately gave back to the community by starting the Peyton Manning Children’s Hospital. Luck has taken his own route by teaming up with Riley Hospital and tutoring kids.
Riley Hospital announced Friday that Luck has been helping children with their homework and other school-related projects while the kids are hospitalized. This does not come as a surprise to many who know Luck, who was his high school’s valedictorian and who did not leave Stanford a year early for the NFL so that he could complete his degree.
While the Colts are in the midst of preparing for the Chiefs and the upcoming playoffs, Luck is showing another reason why he will be the face of this franchise for many years to come. He has donated to the program, but no financial information has been released at this time, and the program has helped thousands of families in years past.
Luck has shown that a career in football is not everything in life and that sometimes it comes second. While he may turn out to be the greatest of all-time, he has shown a kindhearted side by giving back. Many players have given back, and I am not taking that away from anyone, but Luck has used both his financial power as well as his smarts to help.
