Andrew Luck's brother is Gatorade West Virginia soccer player of the year

Thursday February 12th, 2015

Andrew Luck is not the only standout athlete in his family. 

The former No. 1 overall pick in the NFL draft will have to make some room for his brother, Addison, who was named the 2014-15 Gatorade West Virginia Boys Soccer Player of the Year. 

The Gatorade award recognizes athletic achievement as well as academic success.

Addison, a junior midfielder, scored 18 goals and recorded five assists while leading Morgantown High to the Class AAA state championship. He also has a 4.10 GPA. 

"Addison Luck was the best and smartest player that we saw all season," Mario Julian, head coach at Wheeling Park High, told Gatorade. "He can do it all. He scores with his head, his feet, he passes better than anybody and you just can’t get the ball away from him."

Andrew is a huge soccer fan, and said he roots for the American players who play in the English Premier League. Andrew's and Addison's father, Oliver, was also the first president and general manager of the Houston Dynamo of Major League Soccer.

Addison ends his season on a higher note than Andrew, whose Indianapolis Colts lost to the eventual Super Bowl champion New England Patriots in the AFC Championship Game.
