After missing OTAs to finish up his degree at Stanford, Andrew Luck on Tuesday finally got back on the practice field with Colts teammates. And according to Luck, he found it hard to focus on his studies during the final few weeks of school. Very understandable. Almost everyone who’s ever been to school can relate to Luck’s motivational struggles in the classroom. But at the same time many won’t be able to relate to what Luck was keeping himself distracted with.

“I’ve managed to learn the playbook, so I don’t think I’m starting at zero,” Luck said about his five-week absence, according to the Indianapolis Star.

“I’d wake up in the morning and have a serious lack of motivation to go to class,” Luck added. “Then I’d work out, do football stuff until lunch, then go to afternoon classes and go from there. It was tough … My mind has been in Indianapolis the last couple of months.”

This probably makes Luck the first person whose Senioritis didn’t include watching YouTube videos or playing Doodle Jump during lectures. And that’s good news if you’re a Colts fan.
