Andrew Luck has joined over thirty Colts players and staff in shaving his head for Chuck Pagano, who is set to begin his second round of treatments later this week. According to Michael Marot for the Associated Press, Luck and his team are doing all they can to support the #Chuckstrong campaign.
Reggie Wayne wore orange gloves against Green Bay, the ribbon color used to raise awareness for leukemia. Nameplates above player's lockers at the team complex now include orange stickers with Pagano's initials in the middle of Indy's trademark horseshoe.
Instead of trying to get past their coach's illness, or simply using it as inspiration, the Colts have worked Pagano's struggle into their mentality. Every win they get this year is a testament to how much Luck and his team support their coach, and a reminder of how far they've come this year.
