Families out in force to see Colts' evening practice

(Continued)

ANDERSON, Ind. —

Watching from the track fence were a young couple from Anderson, Tyson Taylor and April Gregg, and their two toddlers, Cordney and Glaspie. Taylor said his sons are a little too young to understand the game, but he still wanted to expose them to football this summer, and he appreciated that the training camp sessions are free.

“We have to pay for parking, but it’s not too bad. I’d rather pay for parking than the other way around,” Taylor said. “And we work during the day, so this was our only opportunity to come.”

Taylor said Luck has quickly developed into his favorite player, and he’s looking for a strong follow-up after Luck led the team to a historic turnaround his rookie year. He also has enjoyed watching the developing rivalry between 2012 No. 1 draft pick Luck and No. 2 pick Robert Griffin III of the Washington Redskins.

“As long as he beats out RG3, I’ll be happy,” Taylor said.

Luck, despite replacing Colts legend Peyton Manning, has quickly become a favorite for many, including 12-year-old Wyatt Drake of Frankton, who also watched from the fence.

“I can’t wait for this season,” the boy said.

And like many other children in attendance, he was able to come because his father, Mark Drake, could drive him to the later practice. Drake, a farmer, usually works during the day, and said he probably won’t have a chance to take his son to any other training camp practices. Still, the family hopes to make it to a game or two during the regular season.
