Andrew Luck Teoscar Hernandez Jersey Blue Jays Honored With Literacy Hall Of Fame Award

As the NFL’s unofficial li Men’s Toronto Blue Jays Majestic Authentic 18 Curtis Granderson Canada Day Red Scarlet Flex Base Jersey brarian – two years ago, Colts quarterback Andrew Luck made it official by starting a book club. On Saturday night, Indy Reads honored him for promoting literacy through the Andrew Luck Book Club.

A few years into his NFL career, Colts quarterback Andrew Luck was still struggling to find his cause.

“We had been stewing over ideas of what to do,” he said. “What do I enjoy doing? Where would I really want to give back? I said, ‘Shoot, I really enjoy reading. I believe in the power of reading. Why not try and share that?’”

In 2016, he formed the Andrew Luck Book Club. And he’s been sharing his love of reading with fans of all ages ever since. From classics and biographies to science fiction and non-fiction, his monthly selections cover every genre and every age group.

As the NFL’s unofficial librarian, Luck’s work caught the attention of Indy Reads, a nonprofit organization that helps people with low literacy by pairing them with volunteers to help them reach their goals.

“We try to find someone within the community that’s been a champion of literacy. And what better person to recognize than Andrew and his book club?” said Ryan King, CEO of Indy Reads.

Over the years, Indy Reads has presented the Literacy Hall of Fame Award to philanthropists, activists, teachers, and authors.

On Saturday night, they presented it to an NFL quarterback.

“Tonight, we’re honoring Andrew Luck. The Indianapolis Colts quarterback quickly captured the city’s heart for being a genuinely happy and helpful guy on and off the field,” King said.

Honored  Teoscar Hernandez Jersey and humbled, Luck thanked his parents who sparked his love of reading at an early age – then continued to fuel the fire.

“I think I’m very fortunate to have grown up in a household where books were encouraged and we had books and we had books that spanned all different genres, all different levels, and we were just encouraged to read,” he said.

Stunned by the statistic that one in six Hoosiers read below a fifth grade level, Luck expressed gratitude for the work of Indy Reads and said he hoped to make a difference himself.

“I can’t imagine how narrow your opportunities in life become when you can’t read and how vital that skill is to doing so many things in life.”

Just being who he is and doing what he loves, King said Luck is already making a difference.

“Too many kids out there do not have an adult encouraging them to read. I think Andrew with his book club can really add to that and encourage people that reading is fun.”

And that, said Luck, is his favorite part.

“What’s most gratifying by far are the times I’ve gone into a second grade classroom over by Warren or a third grade classroom over by Ben Davis High School or walked into a nursery school here downtown and read to kids and hung out with them and saw how happy kids are when someon Toronto Blue Jays Canada Jersey e shows up in their classroom with a book and gives them attention and reads a story to them and to see them be transformed into another world.”

Even as an adult, books continue to transform Andrew Luck. They offer an awareness and growth he sees as potentially powerful for readers young and old.

“I only live one life and it’s my life. I’m a 28-year-old white male who has been decent at football,” he said. “I do Luke Maile Jersey n’t know what it’s like to be a woman. I don’t know what it’s like to be a person of color. I don’t know what it’s like to grow up in any other household than the household we grew up in. But through reading books, you get a little slice of someone else’s life and maybe that builds a little empathy and maybe that gives you a little perspective outside of what you experience.”

Indy Reads has a goal.

They hope to use literacy to create a stronger community.

And in Andrew Luck, they found the perfect teammate.

Colts Players Pull Plane For Indiana Children’s Wis Teoscar Hernandez Jersey Blue Jays h Fund

Robert Mathis is always pulling for the kids. How far will he go? On Saturday, he got together with a few Colts players and pulled a plane for them.

It’s the ultimate display of teamwork.

When people come together, they can accomplish more than any of them could on their own.

On Saturday morning, they came together to pull an airplane.

“One man can’t do it,” said Robert Mathis.

The former Colts pass rusher and current defensive coach knows a thing or two about teamwork – on the field and in the community.

“It takes unity to reach our goals,” he said. “It takes a village to raise a child.”

Together with his teammates, quarterback Jacoby Brissett and wide receiver K.J. Brent, they kicked off the ceremonious first pull for the 8th annual Pulling for Wishes Plane Pull for the Indiana Children’s Wish Fund.

“I wasn’t expecting it to move,” said Brissett. “It moved pretty far. That was crazy! I never thought you could pull a plane like that.”

“And it felt kind of easy with all the people pulling it,” said Brent. “You can do a lot with a lot of people together doing the same thing.”

Robert Mathis did it while holding a child.

“A Men’s Majestic Flexbase Authentic 1 Aledmys Diaz Toronto Blue Jays Scarlet Canada Day Jersey Red nd he’s the anchor, doing it with one hand. I’m not surprised,” Brent said. “He’s still got it. He’s still working out.”

“There’s a lot of perception versus reality with that one,” Mathis said. “Little man was more responsible for pulling the plane than I was. I was just holding him, having fun, smiling, enjoying myself.”

And that’s who he does it for.

“For the babies,” he said.

Funds raised by the Indiana Children’s Wish Fund are used to grant wishes for children who have been diagnosed with life-threatening illnesses.

“Just hearing about this event, it’s a great cause,” said Brissett. “It’s a good time to get out in the community, especially in the offseason right now. Trying to bring some light.”

“I got here towards the middle of the season last year and I got kind of thrown in the mix, but  Teoscar Hernandez Jersey I want to be able to present myself in this community, give back in any community that I’m in,” said Brent. “It was a good chance to get out here, meet some people, and let everyone know I want to do more for the community.”

J’Lynn Cooper, Director of Wish Operations, couldn’t be more grateful.

“It’s a Saturday morning. We were here at 6 AM. I don’t know how you can express how grateful you are for all the volunteers it takes to make this happen,” she said. “And we’re thrilled to have the new guys come out and support us as well.”

Between the plane pull and the celebrity softball game, Mathis has lent his name and more importantly, his time to the organization for years.

“It’s approaching a decade,” he said. “We have an annual softball game that we do with Indiana Children’s Wish Fund. I think it will be nine years. It gets bigger and better every year. And that’s a tribute to the people and the citizens of the city.”

But it’s also a tribute to him.

“I don’t know that I could express my love for Robert Mathis,” Cooper said. “I’m a big Colts fan, a season ticket holder. I cried when he retired, but what he does for the charity and for Indianapolis and how he comes out and represents and loves what we do – I don’t have enough nice things to say about that man.”

The plane pull was all in good fun, but it was also a healthy competition.

“It just brings out the best in everybody,” Mathis said. “We want to get the best of the best out here – all for the babies.”

The teams were timed as they pulled a 25-ton jet 15 feet.

Former Colts offensive lineman and current radio host Joe Staysniak emceed the event. He’s been involved with the plane pull from year one.

“There’s strength, but there’s strategy, there’s cunning – there’s all kinds of stuff involved in it,” he said. “You may be really, really good and i Men’s Majestic Flexbase Authentic 57 Jaime Garcia Toronto Blue Jays Scarlet Canada Day Jersey Red t’s just not your day. There are all kinds of things that go into it. That’s the competitive side of people.”

Along with his teammates, Mathis brought his oldest sons out this year.

“I had extra man power with Mason and Jason,” he said. “Team Mathis, the wolf pack.”

Next year, he hopes to get some of the big guys out.

“I’m going to get the O-line and D-line out here,” he said.

Offense versus defense?

We know what side Mathis will be on.

But no matter who wins, everyone is pulling for the kids.

“It makes you feel great because they’re enjoying it and it’s all for a good cause,” Mathis said. “Everybody is buying in  Luke Maile Jersey and ther Men’s Toronto Blue Jays Majestic Authentic 18 Curtis Granderson Canada Day Red Scarlet Flex Base Jersey e’s a lot  Danny Barnes Jersey of unity.”

The kids have everyone on one team – theirs.

And they know their captain, Robert Mathis, has their backs every day.

F Mitchell and Ness Throwback NFL Jersey rank Reich Q&A: 2018 Schedule

First-year Colts head coach Frank Reich today sat down with Colts.com’s Caroline Cann to discuss his reaction to the team’s 2018 regular season schedule.

INDIANAPOLIS — Frank Reich is ready to hit the ground running in his first year as the Indianapolis Colts’ head coach.

And on Thursday, he learned just how the season will shape up.

The Colts released their 2018 regular season schedule, which opens up Sept. 9 against the Cincinnati Bengals at Lucas Oil Stadium.

While you can see the entire schedule by clicking here, Colts.com’s Caroline Cann was able to catch up with Reich to get his reaction to the 16-game slate. Here’s the Q&A from that conversation:

On if it was nice to finally know the schedule for the 2018 regular season:

“It is. And everyone gears up for that first opponent. I mean, you’re preparing for the whole year, but you start to gear your preparation, your mindset for Week 1. That’s really when we kick it all off.”

On the fact the Colts take on the NFC East Division this season with new coaches on staff who come from that division:

“Yeah, it’ll be fun. There is a familiarity — talking about it with our defensive coordinator, ‘Flus (Matt Eberflus), of course, you know, him being in Dallas last year. So there’s some good teams there; good challenges. I think it does help, the familiarity with those defenses — he’s familiar with the offenses — so it’ll be a challenge. Good teams, good coaching staffs. It’ll be fun to go back to Philly, right? I’m super close to those guys. You know, you work hard in this business. But I’m happy to be wearing this (Colts hat), and look forward to going back there.”

On if he cared when he took on his former team, the Philadelphia Eagles:

“It doesn’t really matter. I mean, it really doesn’t matter. Every time you go on the road, it’s always a challenge. You know, playing in that stadium is always going to be a challenge. But those are the things that give you a good test early — you know, going up against the defending Super Bowl champs early on the road I think will be a good test for our team.”

On the prospects of taking on the AFC East Division:

“I mean, that division is strong; obviously, with the Patriots, of course, leading the way, Buffalo being a playoff team last year. There’s some good teams right there — Miami being a playoff team the year before. So it’ll be a good challenge. You know, our offensive coordinator, Nick Sirianni, being in LA the last few years, played a lot of those teams. So some familiarity there, again. At th Mitchell and Ness Dan Fouts Los Angeles Chargers Vintage 1984 Throwback Football Jersey Cheap is point, you’re just ready  Vintage 1968 Mitchell and Ness Joe Namath New York Jets Throwback Jersey Cheap to go. You just want to get your guys in. I mean, we always talk: the schedule’s great, but it’s really more about our team, and how we’re going to play and who we are going to be.”

On if he’s excited to play the Buffalo Bills, where he spent  Mens 1994 Buffalo Bills 35th Anniversary Jim Kelly Mitchell and Ness Royal Blue Throwback Jersey several seasons as quarterback:

“I am. I mean, it’s exciting — as a former player and seeing what they did last year, making it into the playoffs after not b Men’s 1994 Buffalo Bills 35th Anniversary Jim Kelly Mitchell and Ness Royal Blue Throwback Jersey eing there for a while, I was real happy with them. I think Sean McDermott’s doing a great job. But my wife and I have maintained a lot of relationships in that community. I’m just glad we’re playing them here — that’s a tough place to play, and so to get them here is good, and look forward to playing the Buffalo Bills.”

On the fact f Vintage 1968 Mitchell and Ness Joe Namath New York Jets Throwback Jersey Cheap ive of the Colts’ six AFC South Division matchups are in the second half of the season:

“It was a little surprising. I mean, honestly the last couple years it’s felt to me like, you know, we play the division early, and then you know you’re going to play the division late. That’s a good thing that they’ve done with the scheduling; make those division games late. But, really, five of the six coming in the second half of the year is a little bit unique, but it’s kind of fun to have that stretch. Those games kind of count ‘double,’ as we say. So that will be a good stretch for us.”

On the importance of getting in a rhythm by the time the second half of the season comes around:

“Well naturally our plan is to come out hummin’ right from the very start. But, you know, as we get later into the season, we’ve really had a chance to solidify our identity, establish who we are in all phases of the game and really get an idea — good scouting — on our opposing teams as well. So it’s fun either way whenever you play ‘em, but those division games are huge. Everyone in this league knows that it all starts in your division, and you’ve got to succeed within your division.”

Chuck P Mitchell and Ness Throwback NFL Jersey agano To Reportedly Work As NFL Consultant

Former Indianapolis Colts head coach Chuck Pagano reportedly won’t return to coaching this year, and will instead take a job with the NFL as a consultant, Denver7’s Troy Renck reports.

INDIANAPOLIS — Chuck Pagano will apparently continue on with a National Football League job in 2018 — he just won’t be on the sideline.

Denver7’s Troy Renck reports Pagano, the former Indianapolis Colts head coach, is “expected to take (the) fall off” from coaching but will instead work with the NFL as a consultant.

Pagano, the Colts’ head coach for six seasons from  Mens 1994 Buffalo Bills 35th Anniversary Jim Kelly Mitchell and Ness Royal Blue Throwback Jersey 2012 through 2017, spoke to Renck Wednesday at the Colorado Sports Hall of Fame banquet, wh Men’s 1994 Miami Dolphins 13 Dan Marino 75th Anniversary Aqua Authentic Throwback Jersey ere Pagano’s father, legendary high school coach Sam Pagano, was being inducted among a Class of 2018 that also included former Colts and Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning.

Chuck Pagano is one of at least 14 members of the Colts’ 2017 coaching staff to find jobs elsewhere for 2018; the other 13 have all been hired by other NFL or collegiate programs:

• Former defensive line coach Gary Emanuel has been hired to the same position by the New York Giants.

• Former outside linebackers coach Brad White has been hired to the same position at the University of Kentucky.

Richard Howell (assistant strength), Robert Mathis (pass rush consultant/player development) and Ryan Podell (sports science/conditioning), have been retained for new Colts head coach Frank Reich’s staff, meanwhile.

Chris Ball Mitchell and Ness Throwback NFL Jersey ard: Draft Trade Indicative Of Confidence In Andrew Luck’s Progress

The Indianapolis Colts in March pulled off a trade with the New York Jets that moved them from the No. 3 to the No. 6-overall pick. General manager Chris Ballard said Friday the team wouldn’t make such a move if it wasn’t confident in the progress of quarterback Andrew Luck.

INDIANAPOLIS — To Chris Ballard, the Indianapolis Colts’ St. Patrick’s Day trade with the New York Jets set in motion much more than simply moving down three spots and acquiring three second-round picks.

The move was also a clear vote of confidence in his quarterback.

With as many as four quarterback prospects expected to be hot commodities in the upcoming NFL Draft, Ballard said Friday that it wouldn’t have been wise to move from No. 3 to No. 6 overall if there were any sorts of qualms about Andrew Luck’s continued rehab work on his surgically-repaired throwing shoulder.

But, by pulling the trigger on the move on March 17 — the Colts traded the No. 3 overall pick to the Jets for the No. 6, 37 and 49 picks in this year’s draft, as well as New York’s second-round pick next year — Ballard and the Colts are assertive in their belief that Luck’s short-term and long-term prognosis is solid.

Earlier this offseason, Ballard said he felt Luck would come back even better than he was prior to his surgery. He didn’t back off those com Vintage 1968 Mitchell and Ness Joe Namath New York Jets Throwback Jersey Cheap ments Friday, when asked if that feeling has wavered at all over the past couple months.

“Not at all,” Ballard told reporters at his pre-draft press conference. “We traded the third pick of the draft to move back to six. I thought that said we’re pretty confident about where he’s at.”

Ballard said Luck is still wrapping up the strength portion of his rehab work, and while he is still yet to throw a regulation NFL football as part of his workouts, that doesn’t mean Luck hasn’t had the ability to.

“A lot of the exercises he’s doing is conducive to the same thing,” Ballard said.

“(I) feel good about  Mitchell and Ness Dan Fouts Los Angeles Chargers Vintage 1984 Throwback Football Jersey Cheap where Andrew’s at; feel good about where he’s going,” Ballard continued. “No negative, just keep doing the process of what he’s doing, keep working and get him back to playing good football.”

The Colts on Thursday wrapped up Phase 1 of their offseason workout program, which is exclusive to strength and conditioning work, as well as the installation of the team’s new offensive and defensive playbooks.

By virtue of having a first-year head coach in Frank Reich, the Colts will take advantage of a league rule that allows them to hold an extra voluntary veteran minicamp, which the team is hosting next week.

And while that will be the first opportunity for the Colts players to get out onto the field and actually take part in football drills this offseason, there’s no indication that Luck will be an active Mens 1994 Buffalo Bills 35th Anniversary Jim Kelly Mitchell and Ness Royal Blue Throwback Jersey  participant in those workouts.

Luck, who recently admitted to trying to cut some corners last year in his recovery in an effort to get back onto the field quicker, has taken a deliberate, step-by-step approach in his rehab work since being placed on IR on Nov. 2. Simply putting Luck on the field next week for an early-offseason session just to see where he’s at would go against that plan, Ballard said.

“Let me tell you this … Andrew pressed l Vintage 1968 Mitchell and Ness Joe Namath New York Jets Throwback Jersey Cheap ast year. I mean, he pressed to get back,” Ballard said. “Everybody heals at a different rate; you know, we talked about this. But Andrew wanted to play, and he pressed to get back. Things just didn’t work out to where he could play last year.

“He’s not going to skip a step this time — not that he did last time — but he wanted to play, and he pressed to play. I think he’s going to take every step it takes necessary to be ready to go and be ready for camp.”

Colts Players Team Up W Mitchell and Ness Throwback NFL Jersey ith Employees To Feed Seniors

On Friday, Colts players teamed up with ticketing employees to put meals on the tables of seniors in Central Indiana. It’s something they hope to do more of – and they hope to bring in extended members of the Colts family to help them do it.

They have different jobs on different sides of the building. At the Colts facility, it’s not common to see players working alongside employees.

But on Friday afternoon, they got out of the complex and worked side-by-side packing meals for senior citizens at Gleaners Food Bank.

“I think any time you have the ability to have the Colts organization as a whole do things together, it makes it a lot of fun,” said Joe Ondrejko, Senior Vice President of Ticket Sales and Service for the Colts.

Just like the team, the Colts ticketing department is going through some offseason changes.

“I think it’s part of a larger overall commitment that the Colts have, both from a team and a business standpoint,” Ondrejko said. “The fun part of it is, we’re going to build. We’re going to be a lot bigger than we have been in the past. And if we’re going to do that, we might as well be able to give back a little bit too.”

It’s the foundation the Colts organization was built on. And it’s important to pass it on as the Colts family grows.

“When you have a younger staff, for them to understand the importance of volunteering and giving back to the community and making that part of their lifestyle moving forward is a big part of it.”

Wide receiver James Wright felt that commitment as soon as he walked in the building.

“I’ve only been here for a week or so, but from my initial viewpoint, I can tell that this is a very involved team with the community.”

Which made it a great fit for him.

“It’s always a blessing to be able to better the community,” he said. “Any time you can do something to give back and help out, that’s what you’re supposed to do. I feel like we’re obligated as people to help each other out.”

Defensive lineman Hassan Ridgeway got that message loud and clear when he joined the organization. Now, he hopes to be one of the guys helping to instill it in others.

“I had a lot of people show me what it takes and what they do in the community. Hopefully, I’ll set a good example for them to come in and do the same thin Mitchell and Ness Dan Fouts Los Angeles Chargers Vintage 1984 Throwback Football Jersey Cheap g,” he said.

One guy who’s inspired Ridgeway is his teammate, Matthias Farley.

“He’s always doing a lot in the community and he was in my class. So, seeing somebody who was with me being able to do that pushed me to want to be able to do more too.”

And working alongside his teammates made it fun.

“It’s enjoyable,” said nose tackle Joey Mbu. “I’ve got some funny people around me like Grove and Ridge. The jokes are flying – just know that.”

But the real goal was making other people smile.

“It feels good t Mitchell and Ness Dan Fouts Los Angeles Chargers Vintage 1984 Throwback Football Jersey Cheap o know somebody is getting multiple meals and I physically had a part of it,” he said. “It’s a good feeling to know that we can impact people without seeing them.”

And they enjoyed working with their teammates on the other side of the building to do it.

“It feels really good to meet new people,” said defensive tackle Grover Stewart. “We’re all working together. And now, we’re coming together and working together to give back.”

A nice way to get out of the office and spend a Friday afternoon is how customer relationship representative Jacob Romine described it.

“We have some players out here. They’re very active in the community,” he said. “Now, it’s our turn to be just as active with them.”

That’s just what Ondrejko has in mind.

“I’ve been in sports now for 15 years and being able to have an impact on the community, that’s what people love. It’s how the team ties the community together and just being a part of that in a bigger way is important to us,” he said.

And he hopes to have some extended members of the Colts family join them along the way.

“Not only are we going to be more consistent in doing it, we’re going to start inviting season ticket holders to come do this with us,” he said. “Because the season ticket holders are the most special people that we have. They’re the ones that support the Colts through their dedication and their commitment. So, those are the ones that we want to make sure we have the best relationships with.”

The Colts supporting the community alongside the people who support them is teamwork at its best.

It’s what makes a successful team, an inspired workplace, and a strong community.
