Supersport: Andrew Luck
Height: 6-4 Weight: 235 Hometown: Houston, Texas
Andrew Luck drops back, scans the opponent’s defense, then spirals a pass into a Stanford receiver’s hands.
The Cardinal quarterback has executed that play with such frequency that it seems automatic. In leading Stanford to an 11-1 regular-season record, Luck completed an amazing 70.2 percent of his passes for 3,051 yards and 28 touchdowns.
The scholarly junior is one of college football’s premier quarterbacks and an honor student majoring in architectural design.
On and off the field, Andrew is following in the footsteps of his father, Oliver Luck, who was a Rhodes scholar, a former pro quarterback and the current athletic director at West Virginia.
Stanford was fortunate to recruit him. The Cardinals won 11 games this year not because of sheer luck, but largely because of Andrew Luck.
