FN Lutz III chases dream with Indianapolis Colts


ANDERSON, Ind. (WLFI) – A lot of time in training camp is spent knocking the rust off for the veterans, but the other side of camp is the chance for the young and unproven players to show they belong on the team.

That’s the position FN Lutz III finds himself in.

So far, it’s been a dream come true for Lutz. The former Harrison Raider is making the most of his opportunity with the Indianapolis Colts.

“Being an hour away from home and I have a lot of family back home that are Colts fans. So yeah, of course, it’s all kind of surreal when it first happened, but I’m settling in a little bit and learning what I need to do,” Lutz said.

Lutz understands that he must impress during camp to earn a spot on the Colts 53-man roster.

“I was told when I signed that I just have to come to work everyday. I’ve got to learn what I’m doing and just come to work and be ready, and have a positive attitude and all that stuff. There’s a lot of things different that I have to do or more in depth I need to do, so that is the major thing. All around there is always room for improvement,” Lutz said.

One of the perks of his job as a center is working with the quarterbacks, most notably, Andrew Luck.

“It’s awesome, it really is. He’s a great guy and I have a lot to learn from him. And its neat when I’m not in to take my mental reps and stand back and look at him, see what he’s seeing, so when I’m in it helps me out a little bit,” explained Lutz.

Regardless of whether he makes the team or not, Lutz said it’s been an awesome experience working for a world class organization.
