The Indianapolis Colts find themselves in an unenviable position this morning. Their franchise quarterback in Andrew Luck has retired and their 2019 season looks to be over before it began. Not surprisingly, Colts fans are reportedly calling the team and asking for refunds on their season tickets, according to Zak Keefer of The Athletic.
Jacksonville Jaguars long snapper Matt Overton has an idea.
Overton, who played in Indianapolis from 2012-2016, is offering to buy the season tickets from any angry Colts fan. But instead of letting those tickets go back into the sales pool, he’ll be donating them to Riley Children’s Health, which offers children access to comprehensive care across Indiana, including at Riley Hospital for Children in downtown Indianapolis.

I’d be more than happy to buy your season tix off of you & donate them to @RileyChildrens patients & their families. I’m serious.
It’ll be interesting to see if any Colts fans take Overton up on his offer, but regardless it’s a hell of a gesture from Duval’s long snapper.
