The Colts gave some of their rookies time away from the practice field for a Play 60 football camp at The Concord Neighborhood Center Tuesday afternoon.
The players conducted drills with kids, did some arts and crafts and read with the kids. Quarterback Andrew Luck says the players had fun. "It was my first, to be part of the team, first foray into the community and what a blast. It's great to get out here and try to hopefully positively influence some kids lives, or just help them have fun."
Luck recalled a similar event when he was a kid. " I remember when the Super Bowl was in Houston going out and doing a Play 60 thing and meeting Warren Moon, so that was a big deal. My dad backed him up so I felt like I knew him. Obviously I didnt know him at the time. I was a 7th grader at the time or something, so it was fun for me."
Tight End Dwayne Allen says he had a couple of favorite parts of the football camp. "The arts and crafts was a lot of fun but the Quarterback drill with Andrew Luck had to be the best drill out here. I am a little biased because I did participate in the quarterback drill, but it was pretty fun."
The Colts say their "Rookie Community Blitz" plans to activate their players in the community, introduce them to some local charities and give kids a chance to interact with them.
