After a short eight years, Indianapolis Colts quarterback Andrew Luck retired this past August. Luck’s retirement is a huge loss for the Colts and the fans. 

“It’s just so crazy because he’s still so young,” senior Noah Garcia said.

The eight year quarterback missed the entire 2017 season due to a shoulder injury. Luck returned for 2018, but his health wasn’t the same. 

“I’m in pain, I’m still in pain. It’s been four years of this pain, rehab cycle,” Luck said in an Aug. 25 Usnews.com article.

This created an uproar with the fans, booing Luck after he announced he was done playing football. Many players throughout the league showed their support for the former Pro Bowler  after the booing happened, including Green Bay Packers quarterback, Aaron Rodgers. 

“I think the second [emotion] is a little disgust, maybe, at the way that it was handled,” Rodgers said. 

Rodgers defending Lucks decision about retiring shows that other people should be more accepting of a man’s decision. Luck just wants to live a life free of pain. As Stanford graduate, he is sure to  find a job doing something else, whether it involves sports or not.
