Andrew Luck, Houston Dynamo superfan? You bet. In a recent interview with Roger Bennett and the Men in Blazers podcast, the Stratford High School alum dished on his love of the beautiful game. When asked about his favorite team, here's what the Indianapolis Colts quarterback had to say:

"The team that I follow completely is the Houston Dynamo. That's my No. 1 team in my heart because my father used to work for that club."

His father of course being Oliver Luck, former president of the Dynamo and current athletic director at West Virginia University.

Luck goes on to mention that he keeps up with MLS and is excited about the growth of the sport in the US, but he describes his own soccer playing style as "a hustler with zero technical ability." But who knows, maybe we could use a long-throw specialist at another testimonial match.
