Andrew Luck, the Stanford University junior quarterback, took time to do an interview with The Capital Sports Report. The interview took place during the media availability prior to the Heisman Trophy announcement.
TCSR: Could you talk about coming back as a finalist?
AL: “To come back a second time, I feel very blessed. The Heisman Trust caters to our every needs and they make it comfortable to soak it all up.”
TCSR: Can you compare your state of mind from last year to this year’s event?
AL: “Last year, we pretty much knew the outcome of the race before it happened. I went along for the ride. I was nervous sitting in the seat, and I’m sure it will be the same. It is also a little less stressful and knowing how the process works.”
TCSR: Has Jim Plunkett given you any advice on the Heisman experience?
AL: “Absolutely. His house is only a few miles away from campus. He’s a legend in the Stanford community.”
TCSR: Have you seen Plunkett’s Heisman trophy?
AL: “Yeah, I have seen his trophy. He invites the quarterbacks over once a year, so we go over and look at his accomplishments. He has a great wall of trophies.”
TCSR: What would it mean to you to win it?
AL: “Obviously, I would love to win it. My motivation comes more from trying to win football games. At the end of the day, it is the wins and losses that count. The Heisman is an unbelievable award to win and being here is great, but I think I have a great team.”
