Colts quarterback Andrew Luck said he wants to become known as an environmentalist, a term he used to describe himself before the NFL draft.
The Indianapolis Colts selected Luck with the No. 6 overall pick in this year’s NFL draft, after drafting Andrew Luck in the first round in 2015.
Luck has made environmentalist statements before, including calling climate change a hoax, and he told CBSSports.com that he is a believer in “a sustainable future.”
Luck said that he believes humans have a responsibility to make changes in the world, and his father was an environmental activist, something he also shared in the 2017 interview with CBSSports senior NFL writer Adam Schefter.
Luck said his dad, Bob Luck, who was an electrical engineer, also had a connection to the environmental movement.
“My dad’s a great activist and organizer, he was one of the founding fathers of the environmental organization Greenpeace, he did a lot of great work, he’s a very influential figure, and that’s why I love him, because he’s so passionate about environmental issues, that’s his legacy,” Luck said.
Luck’s dad is credited with being one of Green Party presidential nominee Jill Stein’s early supporters, and a Green Party candidate in 2016.
Bob Luck is the founder of the Green Party.
“I know that the environmental issue is very important to people, and I know that environmental issues are important to Bob Luck,” Luck told CBSsports.com.
Luck played quarterback for the University of Indianapolis in 2014, when he was selected first overall by the Indianapolis Colts in the NFL Draft.
In that season, Luck played in 11 games, starting 11 and throwing for 3,903 yards and 19 touchdowns, and was named to the Associated Press All-America First Team.
Luck was named the 2016 National Offensive Player of the Year by the Associated Professional Football Writers Association, the Associated Football Writers Coaches Association, and the National Football Foundation.
Luck is now an NFL quarterback.
“In football, it’s all about chemistry and teamwork,” Luck’s father said.
“And the game is about being able to play with a team, with your teammates, and to win.”
Colts owner Jim Irsay said in the interview with Schefter that he believed Luck’s comments were the first step in becoming an environmental advocate.
“Andrew has shown leadership on this issue,” Irsalay said.
Colts president Jim Iersay said that Luck is “a natural leader.”
“He is an accomplished leader who has been through a lot.
He’s a natural leader.
I think that we have an opportunity to build a team that is going to be a leader in this field, not just as a football team, but as an organization as well,” Iersaid.
“He has shown the leadership that we look for in an environmental leader.”
Luck is an environmental justice advocate.
He has been quoted as saying: “It’s time for us to step up and say, ‘enough is enough,'” Irsaid.
Luck had his own Twitter account on Thursday.
“To say that it’s time to take our environmental commitments one step further is an understatement.
The United States of America is the only country in the history of the world to have no national parks or protected areas,” Luck wrote.
“Our nation’s parks and forests are disappearing in a fast-changing world.
We have to act now to protect the parks and the wildlife and the wild places we cherish.”
Luck has also said that his father, Bob, had a strong connection to environmental activism, according to CBSSports and the Associated Sport.
In a 2017 interview, Bob and his son were asked what their role would be in their son’s life, Bob said his role would not be an environmental one, but instead a social one.
“We will help Andrew take the first steps to become the kind of leader that we hope he can be,” Bob Luck said in that interview.
“That’s the role we will play for Andrew, not an environmental role, but a social role.
We will support him in what he does, we will encourage him, we are going to help him, and we will support those who are doing the hard work to protect our parks, forests, rivers, oceans, and other lands and habitats.”
Luck’s environmental activism includes his campaign to bring more natural-color golf courses to Indianapolis, and an effort to raise $2.5 million to restore the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, which was built in 1964.
Luck also has worked with local nonprofit organizations to save the historic St. Vincent de Paul Church, where he was baptized in 2015, according the Indianapolis Star.
Luck previously told CBS Sports that he “loves” Indiana for its “great history and history of religious freedom.”
Luck told Schefter during the interview that his family is a family that has “a lot of common ground” with others. “It has a
