Oliver Luck was born on Tuesday, April 05, 1960 in Cleveland,
Ohio and he had been a famous and passionate NFL quarterback for the Houston Oilers
back in the days befor e he had become a successful lawyer and a high ranking
official in the NFL leading teams as a GM and even heading the NFL Europe League
as it's president.
How proud must he feel to see his son Andrew Luck starting
the Colts in 2012.
With Oliver Luck the NFL Europe had lost a great
Sports Diplomat, whose outstanding language abilities have contributed a lot,
to make NFL Football to what it is today in Germany.
He had spent a lot
of time with the Frankfurt Galaxy and Rhein Fire, where he had adapted well enough
to the German mentality to present American Football in the best possible way.
Certainly Europe is Europe and not everything that has been made in the US is
bound to go down well with the European fans.
So it has definitely been
one of his great achievements, to bring these different mentalities together,
resulting in two German Teams, that grew strong enough to even challenge the still
No. 1 Sport soccer at times.
The following NFL Europe President Bill Peterson
had said, that Oliver Luck went back to Texas, allowing himself a little time
to breath, since he has committed all of his life to Football since he was a kid.
a bit of Luck, the fans will see him hopefully back at some new position, where
his transcontinental talents and experience can open new horizons.
