It’s been two years since Andrew Luck announced his retirement from the NFL. There’s no indication that he’ll ever come out of retirement, but it’s evident the former No. 1 pick isn’t ready to completely walk way from the game.
In July, the Summit High School varsity football team had a special visitor at practice. That special guest was none other than Luck.
Luck contacted Summit head coach James Wagner and asked if he’d be allowed to show up to practice. Not only did Luck help the coaching staff with their pass protection and quick passing attack, he actually went on the field and led the scout team.
Although it was just a brief appearance on the field from Luck, the first-team defense for Summit was very excited about the possibility of intercepting one of his passes.
“The kids are all trying to get picks on Andrew so they could say that,” Wagner said, via Summit Daily. “We almost had one.”

No, this doesn’t mean that Luck is going to come out of retirement. That being said, it sounds like the four-time Pro Bowl quarterback had a great time with Summit’s football team.
“That’s the great thing about football is it brings us all together and you have an even playing field, that common ground to be in that locker room and to just have him simply be one of the boys,” Wagner said. “Football is still football, no matter where you are at. I think he was so happy to be out here on the field again being around the game. And that was really cool for me to see that in him.”
It’s possible that Luck will make another appearance at Summit High School later this year.
