Before Andrew Luck was a No. 1 overall NFL Draft pick for the Indianapolis Colts, he was a star quarterback at Stanford.

The prototypical quarterback was a two-time All-American and a Heisman Trophy finalist for the Cardinal, spending four years in Palo Alto.

Luck played with many future NFL players at Stanford. Zach Ertz was one of those players.

The star tight end took to Twitter to react to Luck's retirement decision.

"Proud of my dog," he wrote.

Ertz, like Luck, is one of the most-successful former Stanford players in recent NFL history. The star tight end was a second round pick out of Stanford in 2013. He's been with the Philadelphia Eagles his entire NFL career, going to back-to-back Pro Bowls in 2017 and '18. Stanford Football's official Twitter account also sent Luck a message. "Enjoy your next adventure, Andrew. We’re forever grateful for sharing this chapter with you," they tweeted.

Well said, Stanford.
