“Well look, Andrew Luck is a great football player and he’s a great guy,” Pence said. “And he’s gone through a tough four years. A lot of injuries. I’m disappointed to see him retire from the Indianapolis Colts as an almost life-long fan of the Colts. But I wish him well.”
Luck retired Saturday at just 29 years old, citing a mental and physical toll related to his injuries.
Many wonder if the retirement is permanent, something Pence even brought up in his interview.
“And who knows? He’s a young man,” Pence said. “I don’t know. We may see him in football somewhere down the road. But he’s been a great, great, great, great part of the Indianapolis Colts. We wish him well and he’ll be missed.”
