Doing what he did so many times as a kid, Andrew Luck returned the favor on Monday as an instructor at the William & Mary Colonial All-Pro Football Camp.
Luck spent much of the event interacting with the children attending and he was joined by fellow NFL quarterbacks Matt Ryan and Russell Wilson.
Following Monday’s camp session, Luck talked with various media outlets and USA Today writer Steve Gallo took a video of the media session. Gallo’s video of Luck is embedded below.
Below are some of the Colts related highlights of what No. 12 had to say on Monday:
On the biggest difference between Bruce Arians offense and Pep Hamilton’s scheme:
“I think the biggest difference now is that we’ve got a true fullback on the roster and in (Arians’) offense we didn’t have a fullback. It was more the tight end stuff lining up as a fullback, so that will be the biggest difference.”
On how the offseason additions our adjusting to the Colts:
“Everybody that has come in has fit right into the locker room. I remember coming in my first day and guys being very welcoming. I think that’s the culture they’ve built in Indianapolis and I’m just happy to be apart of it.”
On where Luck wants to improve in Year Two:
“I know it’s cliché but improve in every facet, especially accuracy. I left a lot of plays out there by throwing bad balls. Sometimes the wide receivers bailed me out and sometimes the balls were too bad to get hands on them (laughs).”
On Chuck Pagano receiving the George Halas Award:
“Very deserving of that award. It was obviously a bit unprecedented to have your coach leave after three games and start fighting for his life. It definitely put some perspective on things, football. I’m very, very grateful that he’s healthy, in remission.
One of the coolest experiences of my life was having him back on the sidelines, the Houston Texans game, the last regular season game and us getting a win. To see him run out of the tunnel and get that support was special.”
On accepting more of a leadership role this season:
“As a quarterback you assume some leadership role, just naturally, having to talk in the huddle and people having to listen to you. But we have great leadership on offense. Reggie Wayne is our offensive leader. He still is our offensive leader. That’s who I defer to. That’s who I look to. Great leadership in the locker room.
I’ve never felt like that you play quarterback so you have to be the guy. I think that’s a natural progression from what I’ve learned in college and last year. As you get older you talk more, maybe you share your opinion more but Reggie is still, in my mind, our offensive leader.”
