Now for some good training camp news instead of the injury stuff. Indianapolis Colts wide receiver Reggie Wayne has made a habit of big entrances to training camp in the past, but he may have outdone himself this year.
Wayne arrived to Colts training camp in a helicopter recently.
The star wide receiver did it to celebrate the health of Matt Sercer, who was rescued by a helicopter team but told he would never walk again (per George Bremer—click for pictures and a video):
“Guys like Matt and stories like Matt, they’re the real heroes,” Wayne said, via the Jeffersonville (Ind.) News & Tribune. “It inspires you to go out there and do great and prove people wrong. A lot of people didn’t think Matt would be able to walk again, and he’s out here moonwalking with me.”
The Spin: Wayne has always known how to make an entrance to camp, so it’s great to see him use that skill to also highlight a good story and cause.
Now it’s back to football for Wayne and the Colts, and the young team has some proving to do on the field next year. Wayne’s the leader of the bunch.
