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.
