Intro: On Tuesday afternoon, Andrew Luck was a guest on ESPN’s 1070 The Fan. Here are some highlights from Luck talking Colts football, his love of music and a little soccer.


INDIANAPOLIS – As Andrew Luck was wrapping up his "off day" on Tuesday, he joined JMV on ESPN 1070 The Fan.

Here are a few of the highlights from Luck:

Luck on having Dwayne Allen back in the fold this season:

"He's such a dynamic and explosive player that can do so many things well. His production obviously is off the charts. He's a great teammate, a great player. I think the way him, Coby (Fleener), and Jack Doyle, the way they attack teams and the matchup problems they create, it's awesome. It's been a lot of fun with them this year."

Luck on rookie Donte Moncrief becoming more of a factor down the stretch:

"I think he's been a great factor so far. He's steadily gotten better and better. Every time he touches the field and the ball gets in his hands, he seems to make something happen. He's done a great job. He's certainly a special player."

Luck on the confidence level in Boom Herron:

"110 percent. He's done it in practice. He did it in the preseason. When he's gotten his chances in the games this year, he's done a heck of a job. Offense, special teams, you name it, he's done whatever anybody has asked of him. I'm very, very excited for him for this opportunity."

Luck on the cohesion with center Jonotthan Harrison:

"Great. He's done a heck of a job. I'm really, really impressed by his work ethic, his professionalism. He doesn't act like a rookie. He acts wise beyond his years. I think every week, I think we've gotten better as a pair and he's certainly improved. I'd like to think I've improved week-to-week."

Luck on if he's surprised by what Bruce Arians has done in Arizona:

"No, it doesn't. A great coach. Anybody who's played for him knows that. It's almost a shame that it took this long for him to get a head coaching opportunity. He's certainly done a heck of a job. I couldn't be more thankful to play under him for at least a year and learn a lot about football, pro football and what it means to a be a pro quarterback. I'm always happy for his success, unless it comes at our expense."

Luck on what music he listens to while he cleans his condo:

"I just saw the "Searching For Sugar Man" documentary about Rodriguez. It's a great film so I had to download a Rodriguez album. Then AWOLNATION. Rock, mostly rock. Classic rock, alternative rock."

Luck on getting his name out there through marketing:

"I think as every year has gone by from rookie, to second, to this year, I've done a little bit more and more. I've tried to do things that make sense and with companies that I enjoy, whether it's BODYARMOR, MC10, Riley Children's Hospital, different things that make sense. I figure I'm not going to force anything but if opportunities arise and then go ahead and take advantage of it. I guess it's one of the parts of being a pro."
