Andrew Luck launched his own book club

Published Apr. 25, 2016 11:55 a.m. ET

Andrew Luck is a smart guy in addition to being an outstanding quarterback. He had a 3.48 GPA at Stanford, one of the top academic schools in the nation. He also scored a 37 on the Wonderlic Test, which is well above average.

He's continued to show how smart he is since coming into the NFL, sharing book recommendations with his teammates and family. And now he's sharing his wealth of knowledge with his fans -- well, sort of.

The Indianapolis Colts quarterback announced on Monday that he has launched a book club, appropriately called the Andrew Luck Book Club. 


"I've been called the unofficial librarian of the Colts, which is kind of cheesy," Luck said, via ESPN. "But the truth is that I love to read both fiction and nonfiction and I feel strongly about the power of reading. So I thought, 'Why not start a real book club?'"

He introduced the group in this YouTube video, which explains how it works.

Essentially, he'll share two book recommendations on -- one for "Rookies," or kids, and one for "Veterans," or the adult crowd. Fans will then share their thoughts on social media using #ALBookClub, where Luck will interact and engage in Q&A sessions with his fellow readers.

The first book for "Rookies" is Maniac Magee, a classic among young readers. For "Veterans," Luck chose "The Boys in the Boat," which is about the 1936 Olympics.
