Andrew Luck, the red shirt sophomore quarterback at Stanford University, recently took time to do a Heisman Q&A with The Capital Sports Report at the prior to the Heisman trophy ceremony.

TCSR: playing at Stanford

AL: “It’s an honor. I feel so honored to play at Stanford. They’ve had a great history of quarterbacks. I feel blessed to be apart of that winning tradition.”

TCSR: playing for head coach Jim Harbaugh

AL: “He’s a great coach to play for. He’s competitive; he’s fiery. He hates to lose and loves to win. He’s done so many good things for Stanford. It would take hours to tell you all the good things he’s done to the program. As a quarterback, he’s been a great help. He helps me out a lot.”

TCSR: thoughts on the Harbaugh rumors in regards to the Michigan football job

AL: “His name has come up at a number of coaching jobs. His name has been coming up since I’ve been a freshman (2008). I have become used to it, but it goes in one ear and out the other. It’s always going to happen if he’s still at Stanford, or at another school. That being said, he has to do what’s best for his family. I’m sure he’ll make the right decision.”

TCSR: thoughts about his impending decision about the NFL draft

AL: “It’s a decision I’m going to have to make after the Bowl game. I’m not thinking about it right now. I have to talk it over with my parents and coach Harbaugh. We have to see what’s best for me.”

TCSR: does it help that your dad played in the NFL

AL: “I talk to him or text him just about every day. He keeps me updating with stuff going on at West Virginia. Also, about the rest of the sports world that I may not know about.”
