(WSCR) It’s safe to say Sunday was a special day for the Colts entire organization.
With head coach Chuck Pagano, who is on a leave of absence after being diagnosed with Leukemia, in attendance, the Colts defeated the Dolphins 23-20 at Lucas Oil Stadium behind a rookie-record 433 yards and two touchdowns from quarterback Andrew Luck.
“I don’t think there was anybody in this locker room that wasn’t not wanting to give everything to get a ‘W’ today for him,” receiver Reggie Wayne said of his longtime friend and coach. “When he walked in after this victory it was tough, it was hard to hold everything back. You saw a bunch of teary eyes and everything. It was a big win for us, and it took everything we had just to get it done. It was even sweeter just to have him here to enjoy it.”
After the game, Pagano delivered a powerful speech to his team.
