As one of the best quarterback prospects in the past few decades, one would assume that Indianapolis Colts signal caller Andrew Luck would have quite the ego.

In fact, it’s the exact opposite.

Luck is one of the more down to earth players in the league, continually deferring praise to fellow teammates much like he did Reggie Wayne, who he anointed as the leader of the Indianapolis Colts.

It was Wayne who recently came out and suggested that he was the vice president to Luck’s president, but that’s not something Luck says is true.

Per Pro Football Talk:

“I still defer to Reggie Wayne as the leader of our offense,” Luck said. “But I think as a quarterback there’s a natural progression of leadership, the older you get. I definitely feel more inclined this year to share my opinion if I feel like it’s necessary, or to talk in front of the guys, or what have you. As a quarterback you assume a natural leadership role.”

As if you needed more reason to like Andrew Luck, there you go.
