Former Indianapolis Colts quarterback Andrew Luck is getting himself back out there on the football field. Not in the NFL, though, but as a scout team quarterback for Summit High School in Colorado.
Luck called up an assistant coach at Summit he had met while at a ski resort in the area. The former Colts quarterback said he wanted to come out for a practice. They made that happen in July, with Luck going to Summit for a special practice.
Not only did Andrew Luck help out the coaches with plays and schemes, but he also had a lengthy chat with the players in the locker room. Then the 31-year-old took the field with the team, giving out plenty of tips and participating as a scout team quarterback.

Wagner even looked up at one point from coaching the first-team defense to see Luck quarterbacking the scout team offense for the junior varsity team, slinging passes all over the field.
“The kids are all trying to get picks on Andrew so they could say that,” Wagner said. “We almost had one.”
Summit head coach James Wagner said Luck was “just one of the boys” out there at practice, which had to be an incredible experience for the team. They also had an experience with Clayton Kershaw, so this is one lucky group of kids.
Does this mean Andrew Luck is preparing for a return to the NFL after his shocking retirement a few years ago? Almost certainly not, but it's great to see him still out there enjoying football and making dreams come true.
