INDIANAPOLIS – What did Colts players have to say this week as they head into their final week of their offseason program?
The Caroline Symmes Memorial Celebrity Softball Challenge at Victory Field took place on Thursday night with many Colts in attendance. Proceeds from the event benefits the Indiana Children's Wish Foundation, helping children who have been diagnosed with life-threatening illnesses. Led by Mathis and Allen, the Colts beat the Pacers team on Thursday night.
The Colts "Fan Fest" events have headed south. The crew stopped in Evansville on Thursday night with Greg Toler and Donte Moncrief meeting fans. Louisville is the destination on Friday night with Boom Herron and Dwayne Allen headlining the event at the Louisville Bats game. The final fan fest event of the summer will occur next Friday in Logansport, Indiana.
T.Y. Hilton will be gracing one side of Lucas Oil Stadium in 2014. He joins the likes of Adam Vinatieri, Andrew Luck and Robert Mathis as the four Colts players to be displayed on the building. Hilton is certainly deserving thanks to providing fans in that stadium some memorable, memorable moments in his three NFL season.
Mike Adams has been one busy man this offseason. A chunk of his free time has been spent in preparing for life after football. This week the NFL put on a broadcast boot camp and Adams was in attendance. Adams is always a great interview with the media so there's no doubt his post NFL-career could involve broadcasting.
Not many Colts have had to exude more patience than Ballard over the past two seasons. Ballard, who has suffered back-to-back season-ending injuries, reiterated earlier this week that he will be ready to go for Training Camp in Anderson, which will place him a full year away from the football field.
