Luck has landed in Indy

Paul Kuharsky happened to be on a flight to Indianapolis with Andrew Luck who slipped in virtually anonymously for what may be the last time ever:

I arrived to cover the NFL combine Wednesday and I was on the same flight from the West with several NFL prospects, who were heading to Indy to show scouts what they’ve got. None of the prospects was more recognizable than Andrew Luck, the highly-decorated Stanford quarterback. Luck is widely expected to be the No. 1 overall pick in the April draft by the Indianapolis Colts and he is expected to take over for Manning this season. 

Yet, when Luck got off the plane, he walked through the terminal and patiently waited for his belongings at the baggage claim just like everyone else. Not one person went up to him or even turned their head when the tall kid in jeans and tennis shoes walked by.

About Todd Smith

Todd Smith is a part-time sportswriter who spends too much time arguing on Twitter. What he really loves is eating poorly and watching football. He got his first Colts t-shirt in 1984 shortly after the Mayflower trucks arrived and has never given up on his hometown team. He also still holds to the belief that Kordell Stewart stepped out of the end zone and thus cheated the Colts.
