Why Is Andrew Luck In London This Week?

Intro: Andrew Luck is back across the pond this week to help spread the game of football in a country, and a part of the world, the Colts quarterback knows quite well.





INDIANAPOLIS – Andrew Luck's presence in London is consistent, at some point, during each of his previous NFL offseasons.

This year's trip across the pond included a July visit.

The question and answer fan forum on Monday night proceeded Luck getting on the field with campers on Tuesday as he tries to spread the game of American football.

Luck, who was joined by his father, Oliver, on the trip, has always been extremely fond of London and everything Europe offered him during his childhood growing up there.

During Luck's visit, the Colts three-time Pro Bowl quarterback sat down with to talk about the upcoming season:

On goals for 2014:

"I'd like to think that we can get better and improve on 2014. That's the goal for every team when hope springs eternal during the off-season. It's everybody's goal to go out and win the Super Bowl – I'd like to think we have a realistic chance. We certainly have the guys to get it done, the coaching staff and the support so that's what we're working for."On getting past the Patriots:

"The Patriots are obviously the defending Super Bowl champs and our defending conference champs so there's a high amount of respect for that team and what they do. They're the kings of the league right now and everybody would like to de-throne them – we'd like to de-throne them but you have to look at the season as 16 games. There are fans and media who will hype up certain games and circle them in red on the calendar but, as a player, you lose sight of what's important if you get into that mode."On the Colts offseason additions in 2015:

"We have made some great additions and they are great guys in the locker room, who fit in so well. I think the locker room dynamic is an under-rated part of any team. When good locker room people are added, it makes your team that much stronger and it definitely helps on the field."
